Beef Cuts to Stir-Fry
The best cuts of beef to use when stir-frying are sirloin steaks, top sirloin steaks, boneless top loin steaks, tenderloin steaks and rib-eye steaks.
Keeping it Safe
Many frozen foods, such as cuts of meat, should be thawed before cooking for best results. Never thaw frozen foods at room temperature. Instead, place them in the refrigerator to thaw overnight.
How to Slice Raw Meat for Stir-frying or Sautéing
Meats used for stir-frying or sautéing should be sliced thinly across the grain so the meat fibers are short, resulting in more tender cooked meat. For easier slicing, freeze the meat for about 30 min. before slicing. Before slicing the meat, place the meat on a cutting board and look for the direction of the grain. (The meat will have small lines running in one direction.) You may need to slice the meat in 2 different directions to determine the direction of the grain. Use a sharp slicing knife to cut the meat across the fibers into thin slices. Or if you have an electric knife, you can use that to quickly slice the meat. When cooking the meat, be careful to not overcook it. These thin meat strips will cook in just a few minutes.
