This is one of the easiest stir-fried dishes you’ll ever make. There are only two main ingredients in this beef and onion stir fry, but they pack a ton of flavor.

Flank steak is the most popular cut of meat for making a beef stir fry because it is lean, boneless and easy to tenderize.

What Is Stir Fry?

Stir frying means food is cooked at a high temperature and quickly. Whereas, with regular frying, it is often done at a lower temperature and slower pace.
