Chinese Beef Stir Fry with Vegetables

Chinese Beef Stir Fry with Vegetables is very commonly made in Chinese homes, with any vegetables that you may have. I particularly love adding sawi spinach / xiao bay chai/ Japanese mustard greens. Other popular options are broccoli, green bell pepper or mushroom. This is a dish that can be made in 20 minutes and it’s just awesome with steamed white rice. My little one calls it ‘ The juicy beef ‘ .
