Asian Beef Salad

Servings 6 Serves


  • 1 1/2 pounds extra lean beef sirloin cut into strips
  • 3 tablespoons dry sherry or use red grape juice with a splash of cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic pressed, or more
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil may be found in ethnic section of grocery store
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • Non-aerosol cooking spray
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 2 1/4 cups snow peas
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced Zucchini
  • 1 1/2 cups red bell pepper strips
  • 6 cups spinach leaves


  • Place beef strips in a large bowl. In a small bowl, combine sherry (or juice/vinegar), soy sauce, gingerroot, garlic, sesame oil and cornstarch; blend well and pour over sirloin strips; stir to coat.
  • Heat a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat and coat with cooking spray. Add mushrooms, snow peas, zucchini and bell pepper; stir-fry until snow peas are bright green, mushrooms have wilted, and remaining veggies are tender-crisp. Remove from skillet and set aside.
  • Drain marinade from beef and reserve. Coat skillet or wok with cooking spray again as needed; stir-fry beef (half at a time) for 1 to 2 minutes. Return vegetables, beef and marinade to skillet; cook and stir until sauce thickens. Divide spinach evenly on each dinner plate; serve beef mixture on top.
