Spicy beef stir fry

This spicy beef stir fry recipe comes from Gran Luchito, maker of smoky sauces. The smoked chilli paste used for the stir fry is made with Pasilla Oaxaca chillies, which are ground with caramelized onions, balsamic vinegar and a dash of dark agave syrup, to deliver a real depth of flavour. 


  • 500g beef steak (sirloin is a good choice)
  • 2tsp Gran Luchito smoked chilli paste
  • 4cm piece ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2tbsp soy sauce
  • 1tbsp fish sauce
  • 1tbsp sesame oil
  • juice of half a lime
  • 200g broccoli
  • 1 red pepper
  • 5 spring onions
  • handful of fresh coriander
  • 300g egg noodles
  • lime wedges (for serving)
  • black pepper
  • salt


1. Add the Gran Luchito Smoked Chilli Paste, soy sauce, sesame oil, fish sauce, lime juice and a good pinch of black pepper to a bowl and whisk well.

2. Cut the beef steaks into strips about 2cm wide and place in bowl with marinade mix. Stir well to cover the steak all over and leave to sit for as long as possible.

3. Meanwhile, prepare the rest of the ingredients. Slice the peppers into strips and cut the broccoli into bitesized chunks. Grate/smash the ginger (keeping ginger in the freezer and grating off what you need is a handy tip) and garlic. Roughly chop the spring onion.

4. Heat a wok on a medium heat with a splash of vegetable oil.

5. Add the ginger/garlic and cook for a few minutes (keep it moving and don’t let it burn). Turn up the heat and add the broccoli, red pepper and half of the spring onions.

6. Keep it all moving and cook until the broccoli begins to soften slightly (about 5-6 minutes).

7. Once happy with the vegetables, remove mixture from wok into a bowl/plate.

8. Get the noodles softened (as per instructions on packet). Return wok to a high heat.

9. Remove beef from marinade (keep the sauce) with a slotted spoon and add to the wok once very hot. Cook for about 2-3 minutes.

10. Once happy with the beef, lower the heat and return the vegetables and noodles to the wok along with the marinade.

11. Use tongs to mix well and heat for a few minutes.

12. Leave to rest for a few minutes before serving with remaining spring onions, freshly ripped coriander leaves and wedges of lime.
