Lamb isn't something most people eat a lot of, but I think it pairs wonderfully in a stir fry.

  • 1/2 lb lamb sliced - lean beef may be substituted
  • 2 onions
  • 3 Tbsp garlic sliced
  • 6 Tbsp oil I don't measure but use just enough to stir fry each step.


  • 2 Tbsp oil
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp wine
  • 1/2 tsp pepper

Seasoning Sauce

  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil


  1. Thinly slice lamb. I have found it is easier to slice when the meat is still partially frozen - if you are using frozen.
  2. Mix Marinade and marinate for at least 15 minutes - I usually do this the night before and let it marinate overnight.
  3. Chop onions or if using scallions, cut them in strips.
  4. Mix seasoning sauce in a small bowl.
  5. Heat the oil in wok until it is very hot - then add garlic - stir fry quickly.
  6. Add lamb and stir fry quickly until browned. The secret to this recipe is using the highest heat and cooking quickly - this makes the meat juicy.
  7. Add the onion and seasoning sauce and stir until heated.
  8. Serve and Enjoy!
