I made this recipe a couple of weeks ago and it is a real winner. My husband really loved it. I got this recipe from one of my favorite cookbooks "Better Homes and Gardens" c1972. I will be making this one again tonight for supper. I hope you will give this a try. I know you won't be sorry that you did.

How to Make Tomato Beef stir fry


  1. Partially freeze beef slices; cut diagonally in 1/4 inch slices
  2. Combine cornstarch,1 Tbsp oil, soy sauce and pepper in a bowl. Add beef, toss to coat well.
  3. Let stand several hours or overnight in the refrigerator.
  4. Drain and save marinade
  5. Heat ginger in remaining tablespoon of oil in a electric wok or skillet at 350 degrees F.
  6. Add beef and stir fry until brown, 5 to 6 minutes; push to one side, Add green pepper, mushrooms, and green onions.
  7. Cook until tender crisp about 2-3 minutes; push to one side.
  8. Add the tomatoes; cover and cook 2 minutes.
  9. Pour reserved marinade over meat; Cook and stir till thickened .
  10. Serves 4
  11. NOTE: Use two Woks if you are cooking Tomato Beef for more than four people. Push the browned meat and vegetables up the flared sides of the pan while remaining portions cook in the oil centered at the bottom
  12. I didn't have a wok the first time I made this so I used an ordinary 10" fry pan with high sides and it worked just fine for 4 servings. I now have purchased a wok (not electric) . Will be using it instead of the frying pan
