Vietnamese-Style Shaking Beef and Watercress

Vietnamese-Style Shaking Beef and Watercress
In This Article

You’ll want to get your wok or cast-iron pan very hot (nearly smoking) for this quick stir-fry; a good sear on the steak bites ensures great flavor and juicy meat. Peppery watercress leaves wilt a little when they meet the hot beef, while the stems remain crunchy in this warm salad. You can substitute arugula in a pinch.

Bonus: Watercress is high in iron and vitamin C, which helps our bodies absorb the iron in our diet, so it’s a nutritional win-win!
