Hello hello! Today we are making Sweet & Spicy Vegan “Beef” and Green Beans! This is a spin on the classic beef & broccoli that is beloved by so many. Except this one is made right at home, with homemade vegan “steak” simmered in a sweet and spicy pepper sauce, with crisp green beans added for colour and crunch. Look at us being all healthy in January! I like to serve this with plain steamed white rice. Perfect for when you want the restaurant type meal but don’t want to spend money OR leave your house!
This recipe is truly needed these days. Its freezing cold, and even though restaurants have opened back up… I’m kinda okay with staying home and cooking most of our meals at home. It saves money and also means you can control exactly what is in it! Perfect for vegans, people with allergies or those looking to limit sodium/oil intake.
This recipe uses my vegan steak recipe as the protein. Its delicious! But if you prefer to use store-bought or tofu or another type of protein you may have to adjust the sauce etc. Feel free to play around and let us know what changes you make below!
To a frying pan on medium heat, add 1 tbsp oil, garlic, green onion and green beans. Cook 2 minutes until garlic is fragrant and beans are vibrant.
Meanwhile, add sliced vegan steak to a mixing bowl with the flour and toss to coat. Add 1 tbsp oil, then add beef to pan. Fry, toss occasionally,until golden on all sides, about 8 minutes total.
In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, water, sugar, ginger, pepper, chili flakes and sesame oil. Pour into frying pan and stir gently to coat. Simmer about 5 minutes on low, until sauce has thickened slightly.
