Sirloin Steak is the cut of choice for a high temperature stir fry

We love Sirloin Steak for Stir Fry dishes, and the Chinese Beef Broccoli Stir Fry is no exception! Given Sirloin is a thicker cut of meat it holds up extremely well to the extremely high temperatures of a stir fry cook. It doesn’t take too long to cook (just 2 minutes in the pan for this dish!), and good quality Sirloin is super tender and packed full of flavor

The heartiness of the Sirloin Steak lends itself well to a longer marinade. Ideally for this dish we would recommend a marinade time of 2+ hours, up to overnight. If you can get organized with your meal prep we would recommend it. The beautiful flavors of Soy, Ginger, Garlic, and Honey melt into the Sirloin which leave it rich with flavor when cooked

Some Sirloin can be on the tough side, we understand that. The good news here is when you marinade Sirloin Steak in Soy Sauce, the sauce tenderizes the meat. So again, if you can accommodate a longer marinade time, your Chinese Beef Broccoli Stir Fry will only benefit from it

  • 1 lb. Sirloin Steak, cut into bite size strips

  • 2 tbsp. Soy Sauce

  • 1 tsp. Chinese Vinegar

  • ½ tsp. Fish Sauce

  • 2 tsp. Honey

  • 1 tbsp. Ginger, grated

  • 4 Garlic Cloves, finely diced

  • 1 head of Broccoli, cut into bite sized florets

  • 1 Carrot, diced

  • 1 cup Button Mushrooms, sliced

  • 1 tsp. Vegetable Oil

  • ½ lb. Wheat Noodle (eg: Udon Noodles)


  • To create the marinade, add Soy Sauce, Chinese Vinegar, Fish Sauce, Honey, Ginger, and Garlic in a small bowl. Mix well to combine
  • Place the marinade into a Ziplock bag along with the Sirloin Steak. Seal tight, then massage the marinade into the Steak so all pieces are covered. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving
  • In a large frying pan or Wok, add the Vegetable Oil and heat over high heat. Once hot, add the Onion, Carrots, and Mushrooms and cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently
  • Add the Broccoli and cook for a further 2 minutes, stirring frequently
  • Add the Beef (including all the marinade, which doubles as the sauce) and the Noodles to the pan. Be sure to stir constantly to ensure the Noodles break up and cook evenly. Cook for 2 – 3 minutes until the Beef is cooked medium rare (internal temperature of 120 degrees)


  • An optional step is to blanch the Broccoli in boiling water for 1 minute prior to adding to the stir fry. You can also pre-cook the noodles and simply add them to the pan or serving plates just before serving
