Beef Negimaki Stir Fry
This Beef Negimaki Stir Fry takes all of the delicious flavors of Beef Negimaki and puts them in a pan so your dinner will be ready in under 30 minutes. Although green beans aren’t part of the traditional negimaki, they are added to this pan for extra veggies. The flank steak, green beans and spring onions are coated with a sweet and savory sauce and served over watercress for a light dinner. Rice is optional, but personally I love it and found it great as a side dish. Try broccoli beef, rock steak, baby bok choy, and zucchini stir fry, and spiraled Shanghai beef and broccoli for more roast beef recipes.
