Beefless Stir-Fry

Here's a delicious meat free stir-fry using Gardein. I love their products. The beefless tips will absorb more flavor if you marinate them for 2-3 hours. So plan ahead for this dish. The cooking goes very fast so have all of your ingredients ready before you start the cooking process. I based this recipe on the one over at Homemade Levity.

  • 1 package Gardein beefless tips (defrosted 15 minutes), cut each tip in half
  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 4 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha sauce
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup celery, thinly sliced diagonally
  • 1 cup carrot, thinly sliced diagonally
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into bite sized chunks
  • 1/2 large sweet onion, sliced into vertical strips
  • 3 scallions, sliced
  • rice or rice noodles as accompaniment
  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds, toasted, for garnish, optional

In a small bowl, combine garlic, ginger, soy sauce, sesame oil, lime juice, hoisin sauce and sriracha.

Be sure to cut each beefless tip in half.

Transfer mixture to a heavy duty plastic Ziploc bag and add Gardein beefless tips (already halved). Seal bag and transfer to the refrigerator. Marinate 2-3 hours, turning occasionally to ensure all pieces are covered.

Cut your carrots and celery on the diagonal to make them pretty and give them more surface area. I sliced my onion in half vertically and then made slices of it and chunk-ed the bell pepper.

In a large skillet, heat olive oil. Add marinade and Gardein beefless tips mixture. Cook about 5 minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally.

Stir in veggies and cook an additional 3-5 minutes until vegetables are softened but still crispy.

Remove from heat. Serve over rice or rice noodles and top with scallions. Garnish with sesame seeds, if you like.
