How to Stir fry/Sauté Beef

The French word for jump is sauté—and that’s what happens to your favorite ingredients when using stir-fry or sauté cooking techniques. Sautéing is a way to cook food quickly in a small amount of oil or other fat in a pan over direct heat. Stir frying beef is similar, except the ingredients must be constantly moving.

  • Use a small amount of oil to prevent sticking
  • Add cut beef gently, away from you to prevent splatter
