Beef Stir-fry strips
Stir-fry strips can be made from a number of tender muscles. Stir-fry strips are usually cut about 1cm thick so they cook quickly and as they are cut across the grain they are really tender.
As the name suggests, these strips of beef are perfect for stir-frying either in a wok or large frying pan. They will take 2-4 mins to cook in a hot pan.
If you can't get hold of ready cut beef strips you can always make your own at home. Just take a steak of your choice and slice across the grain (at 90º angle to the long meat fibres) about 1cm apart. You could also make them from a lean piece of topside.
Stir-fry strips can be cut from many different areas, but always using a tender muscle so that they cook quickly and aren't tough. These muscles include feather from the chuck, fillet, topside. Which muscle your butcher uses will affect the price of the strips you buy.
