Beef and Spinach Stir- Fry

Servings 4 servings


  • 1 pound beef chuck roast trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • 1 small onion thinly sliced
  • 6 ounces spinach chopped
  • 1/3 cup low sodium beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste


  • Cut the steak across the grain (diagonally) into very thin slices; place in a medium bowl, add cornstarch and toss to coat. Heat the oil in a wok or large skillet until almost smoking; add beef and gingerroot and stir-fry for 2 minutes or until beef is no longer pink on the outside; transfer to a plate. Add the onion to the wok or skillet and stir-fry until softened, 1 to 2 minutes. Add spinach and stir-fry until just wilted, about 30 seconds. In a small bowl, combine broth and ketchup; blend well then add to the pan, along with the browned beef; stir-fry until the sauce is heated through and coats the beef and vegetables, 2 to 3 minutes; season to taste with pepper.

SERVING SUGGESTION: Serve over brown rice instead of Cauli-Rice.
KOSHER: Make sure beef is certified kosher.
