This simple szechuan beef and vegetable stir fry is a great way to spice up midweek meals and only takes 10 minutes to make.


  • 300g thin beef frying steaks
  • 2 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 290g pack stir-fry vegetables
  • 100g Szechuan stir-fry sauce (we used Mighty Spice Szechuan Spice Mix, from selected Sainsbury’s)
  • 350g pack chilled egg fried rice


  1. Trim the beef steaks of excess fat, cut into strips and season.
  2. Heat the toasted sesame oil in a wok or large frying pan over a high heat until just smoking. Add the beef and stir-fry for 1 minute until browned. Add the stir-fry vegetables and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes until softened slightly. Add the Szechuan stir-fry sauce and stir-fry until piping hot.
  3. Serve with the egg fried rice, heated according to pack instructions.
