What sets this recipe apart? It’s all about the technique. By frying the beef first and then setting it aside before reintroducing it to the pan later, you ensure that each ingredient has the space it needs to shine. This prevents overcrowding in the wok, which can lead to steaming instead of frying, and allows the beef to develop a delicious sear without becoming overcooked.

And speaking of beef, it’s crucial to choose the right cut. Opt for flank steak and be sure to slice it ACROSS the grain to guarantee tender, melt-in-your-mouth meat with every bite. This attention to detail ensures that your stir-fry is not only bursting with flavor but also boasts the perfect texture.

But perhaps the best part about Stir Fried Beef and Nectarines is its versatility.

  • Yield: 4 1x
  • Category: Entree
  • Method: Stir Fry
  • Cuisine: Asian


Units Scale
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon + 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 1 pound beef (top sirloin, flank, eye of round) cut into 1/8″ slices
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced into thin wedges
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 1 nectarine, cut into thin wedges or 12 chunks
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce


  1. In a bowl, combine the soy sauce, sugar, cornstarch, black pepper and the 1 teaspoon of cooking oil. Add the beef slices and mix to coat well. Let marinate 10 minutes at room temperature or up to overnight in the refrigerator.
  2. Heat a wok or large fry pan over high heat until a bead of water sizzles and evaporates upon contact. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of cooking oil and swirl to coat.
  3. Add the beef slices to the wok in a single layer, laying out the slices all around the surface of the wok or pan. Fry 30 seconds, flip and fry another 30 seconds to 1 minute, depending on thickness of your steak, until just cooked through. Dish out, keeping as much sauce and oil in the wok as possible.
  4. Turn the heat to medium and add the red onions and the garlic. Fry for 1 minute. Add the nectarine slices and let those get nice and warm, about 1 minute. Add the beef back into the wok, add the oyster sauce and toss to coat.
