Beef and Cashew Stir Fry

Sometimes, meal plans are best designed around the sales you find at the grocery store! This week I picked up some lean thin cut beef for stir fry that had to be used by Tuesday. Easy way to plan a meal, don’t you think?

Stir fry is also one of the easier dinners to make to incorporate lean proteins and lots of veggies! I also incorporated some healthy fats into the beef and veggie mix by tossing in cashews. In my house, stir fry is usually served on a bed of brown rice. Last night I chose to forgo the rice, and made a plate solely of beef and cashew stir fry.

This stir fry turned out amazing. I give this credit to the ginger. I bought ground ginger specifically for a stir fry recipe. Stir fry is going to show up a lot more often now that I have discovered the magic of this spice!

Beef and Cashew Stir Fry


  • 1 pound strips of lean beef for stir fry or lean steak
  • 8-10 mushrooms, sliced
  • ½ cup red onion, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons low sodium chicken or beef broth
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • ½ cup cashew halves and pieces
  • red pepper flakes or crushed red pepper (optional for spice)
  • cooked brown rice (optional)


  1. In a skillet over medium-high heat, cooked strips of beef in ½ tablespoon EVOO. Add seasonings and soy sauce while cooking. Cook about 8-10 minutes until cooked through.
  2. In a separate skillet, saute veggies in remaining EVOO and broth until mushrooms are cooked. Green pepper and onion should be slightly crisp.
  3. Combine veggies, meat, and cashews. Cook for additional 2-3 minutes.
  4. Serve solo or on brown rice.
