Super Fast Super Healthy Thai Beef Stir Fry

I'm  a huge Thai food fan, and luckily most Thai dishes are healthy! This dish is one of the healthy ones, perfect for guilt free dining mid week. You can really put any veggies with this dish, but I find that green peppers always pair beautifully with beef. There can be alot of calories in peanuts but a small amount are good for you and they help curb any 9pm hunger pangs that I sometimes experience with healthy stir fries.

Once you have all your ingredients prepped, this dinner can be made in a matter of minutes. Cut all your vegetables into even slices so they all cook at the same time.


  • 3 minute steaks, cut in strips
  • 1 carrot, sliced thinly
  • 5 mushrooms, sliced thinly
  • 1 green pepper, sliced thinly
  • 1 red onion, sliced thinly
  • 2 tsp of cornflour
  • Stir fry oil, for cooking

  • 1 tbsp of fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp of sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp of light soy sauce
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 lemongrass, thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, diced
  • 1 thumb size piece of ginger, diced
  • 1 tsp of chili flakes
  • 2 tsp of sugar

To serve
  • 2 tbsp of peanuts
  • Wholewheat noodles
  • Lime wedges


  1. First marinate the beef. Mix all the marinade ingredients in a bowl and pour over the sliced beef. Leave to marinate for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Cook the noodles and set aside.
  3. Put the wok on a high heat and pour in some cooking oil.
  4. Stir fry the vegatables for 1-2 minutes and remove.
  5. Drain the beef from the marinade, reserving the liquid.
  6. Add the cornflour to the liquid marinade and stir to dissolve.
  7. Add more stir fry oil to the wok and fry off the steak, this should only take 1 minute. 
  8. Pour in the marinade liquid and stir to heat and cook the cornflour out.
  9. Re-introduce the vegetables to the wok and stir fry for 1 minute.
  10. Serve with hot noodles, scatter over the peanuts and serve with a wedge of lime.
