Stir-Fried Steak with Black Garlic

Recipe Courtesy of Lynne Webb

Prep time:  5 mins | Cook time:  5 mins

Total time:  10 mins | Serves: 4


  • 1 lb boneless New York strip steaks

  • 1-1/2 tablespoons soy sauce, divided

  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil

  • Freshly ground black pepper

  • 6 to 8 cloves black garlic, roughly chopped (see notes)

  • 4 scallions, sliced


  1. Trim any excess fat from the steaks, slice them into thin strips for stir-frying and place in a bowl. Add the soy sauce, 1 tablespoon of the sesame oil, and some freshly ground black pepper. Stir to coat the meat thoroughly and set aside at room temperature for 15 minutes.

  2. Heat the remaining tablespoon of sesame oil in a wok or heavy skillet over high heat. Add the beef along with the juices that have accumulated, and stir fry for 30 seconds. Reduce the heat to medium-high, add the black garlic and continue stir frying until the garlic breaks down slightly and combines with the meat juices to form a sauce that coats the beef, 1-1/2 minutes. Small chunks of the garlic will remain. Serve over Ginger Noodles with Shredded Cabbage (recipe follows).
