Calling all my steak lovers! Looking for a quick and healthy meal for those busy weeknights? My Rosemary Shaved Beef Stir Fry is just what you need!
Seriously, if you aren’t cooking with this beef, you’re missing out! The thin slices of beef make for a FAST cooking time!
This is the perfect meal for the whole family and elegant enough to serve on special occasions such as date nights. Just pull out the white wine and you’re set!
- Fresh rosemary sprigs make this dish so dang tasty.
- Balsamic vinegar gives this rosemary mixture an extra pizazz.
- Coconut aminos. Coconut aminos is basically a gluten free soy sauce that will give this steak recipe some salt.
- Maple syrup. When salty and sweet unite- no pun intended! The maple syrup won’t make it super sweet but it will balance out the vinegar and the salt.
- Fresh garlic cloves. Every delicious steak needs fresh garlic!
- Crimini mushrooms. Mushrooms are always a great steak addition.
- Extra virgin olive oil.
How to prepare this rosemary shaved beef stir fry
- In a large bowl or shallow dish, you’re going to add all the ingredients except for the olive oil and mushrooms. Mix the sauce into the meat and let it marinate for about 30 minutes at room temperature or in the fridge. Marinating the meat gives it extra flavor.
- On medium-high heat, preheat a large skillet for 1-2 minutes. When the pan is ready, turn the heat down and add the olive oil along with the mushrooms. Let them cook for about 3-4 minutes then you can add the beef.
- The beef will braise in the sauce for about 20 minutes.
- You can adjust the seasoning by adding more black pepper and salt if you like.
What is Shaved beef and where do I find it
It’s most popular in Philly cheese steak recipes. Shaved beef is thinly sliced beef that can come from pretty much any part of the cow. It’s also lower in fat.
Shaved beef can be purchased in your local supermarket. Trader Joe’s carries it as well. One store I haven’t seen it at is my local Costco.
Are you wondering what else can you make with shaved beef
Other cuts of meat that can be used in this Rosemary Shaved Beef recipe
Since this is a stir fry recipe, this beef is the best cut for this because it is thin strips and will cook fast. However you can use this stir fry sauce as a marinade for other cuts of beef. Some juicy steak cuts I recommend are filet mignon, flank, New York strip steak and tenderloin steak.
Another idea is cut the meat into strips but the cook time will vary depending on the thickness.
- Fresh herbs are great but dried rosemary can work in this rosemary shaved steak recipe.
- Soy sauce can be used in replace of coconut aminos.
- Brown sugar or coconut sugar can substitute the maple syrup.
- Granulated garlic works if you don’t have fresh garlic.
- Baby Bellas or white mushrooms can replace crimini.
- Vegetable oil or canola oil can substitute the olive oil.
- Add other vegetables in as well such bell peppers, snow peas, or shredded carrots.
- Green onions are always a nice addition to this dish.
What kind of vegetables and side dishes can I serve with this Rosemary Shaved Beef Recipe?
Crisp vegetables like green beans are delicious. Also broccoli florets are good as well as roasted cauliflower.
For side dishes, I suggest rice, polenta slices, or a baked potato.
How will I know this meat is done
The best way to know if your steak is done properly is by using an instant-read thermometer. Shaved beef cooks pretty fast but if you are cooking a more thicker cut and grilling it, you’re definitely going to want to check for the degree of doneness.
The following temperatures are in in Fahrenheit.
- Well done – no pink and the temp will be 160 degrees.
- Medium Well- Slightly pink and the temp will be 150 degrees.
- Medium- it will have a warm pink center and the temp will 145 degrees.
- Medium rare- more of a red center and the temp will be 135 degrees.
- Rare- very red center and the temp will be 125 degrees.
Let the steak rest on a cutting board or a baking sheet. Also take note that steak continues to cook as it rests, so to avoid overcooking a grilled steak, be sure to be checking the temperature often.
Why I love this recipe and you will too!
This recipe is for my husband because he insists that I need to make more beef recipes. Though I try to tell him that there are other great sources of protein out there, he is convinced that beef is the best for him. LOL
So I make it a deal that I will make beef recipes but they have to be lower in fat and versatile.
I love this recipe with roasted vegetables!
