Beef and Potato Stir Fry

Not another potato dish!!! (Is what I’m sure you’re thinking right now). Hear me out, please.

First, in lieu of rice at Christmas, I intend to make potatoes the main dish. So what you see is me testing (and tasting) potato recipes to enable me (and maybe some of you) make a firm choice.

Secondly, I happened to buy 1 basket of potatoes, HACE (my husband), not knowing I bought some, brought in 2 baskets of potatoes on the same day! I’m literally swimming in potatoes!

This dish is really easy- the hardest thing here is cutting the meat into strips (is there a machine for that?). It’s a strong contender for Christmas lunch. It packs a wallop of flavours and taste, and it will be perfectly paired with my coconut coleslaw and peppered chicken. Delicioso!


  • 10 irish potatoes, cubed
  • 200g of beef, sliced thinly
  • 1 spring onion, white and green chopped separately
  • 2 atarodo (habanero)
  • 1 inch piece of ginger, minced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 of a green bell pepper, sliced into strips
  • 2 tomatoes, sliced into strips
  • 1 tablespoon of Hoisin sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon of oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 stock cube


  1. Boil the potatoes with 1/2 teaspoon of salt till just done. Drain.
  2. Put oil in a wok over medium-high heat. Add garlic, ginger, atarodo and white part of spring onions. Sauteé for 2 minutes.
  3. Add beef and salt, stir fry till done, about 7 minutes.
  4. Add potatoes, green pepper and tomatoes, stock cube, oregano, black pepper, and Hoisin sauce. Stir, and add 4 tablespoons of water.
  5. Cover the wok, and leave to cook till liquid is totally incorporated, about 4 minutes.
  6. Garnish with green part of spring onions, serve, and enjoy!


Hi, my name is Chidinma. I’ve been happily married for 4+ years (actually almost 6 years now), and my husband and I have been trying to have our own children for almost all the time we’ve been married, with no success…yet. We haven’t lost hope (far from it), and we believe it will happen very soon.
