Takeout at home! Vegan beef simmered in sweet & spicy pepper sauce. Best served over steamed rice.


  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup chopped green onions
  • 150g green beans
  • 2 vegan steaks, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp flour

Sweet & Spicy Pepper Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp dried ginger
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp sesame oil (optional)


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
