No-Fry Vegetable Beef Stir-Fry Recipe

I love making tasty and nutritious dishes at home; it's a much healthier (and more cost-effective!) solution than going out to eat.

This no-fry veggie beef stir-fry recipe is full of awesome flavors.

Stir-fries are a nutritious and inexpensive way to feed your family. Add a couple of spring rolls to this dish, and it will become a Friday-night favorite.

30 min

1 hour

6 servings (6 ounces per serving)


  • 1 small head of cauliflower, cleaned and florets removed
  • 6 cloves garlic, as is with top, cut off bulb
  • 1 package baby bok choy, cleaned and cut in half
  • 2 red bell peppers, julliened
  • 1 pound lean ground beef, rolled into balls with garlic inside
  • 1 package snow peas, cleaned
  • 1 tablespoon each of yellow grainy mustard and soya sauce, on beef
  • 4 pinches salt, pepper, hot pepper flakes, added to beef
  • Drizzle olive oil, over whole dish


  1. When the garlic and cauliflower are ready, put them on a flat cooking sheet, drizzle olive oil over them, and place in the oven at 400˚F for 10 minutes.
  2. While that is roasting, add the mustard, soy sauce, salt, pepper, and hot pepper flakes (or not) to the lean ground beef. Mix in with your hands.
  3. Take the garlic and cauliflower out of the oven and squeeze out the individual cloves of garlic on a plate. You are going to wrap one of these garlic cloves inside each meat ball.
  4. Cut bok choy in half. Julienne the red peppers (cut into thin strips). You can add green onions here also. This would really add to this dish, but unfortunately, I cannot eat onions. Cut green onions into strips also. You can choose whether to cut the ends off the snow peas; I don't usually bother with this step.
  5. Place all ingredients flat on cooking sheet. Drizzle olive oil and salt/pepper over the whole thing, and place into the oven for 30 minutes at 400˚F.

I love garlic, so I placed garlic on top when I plated this dish. It is appealing to the eye and the appetite. What happened to the cauliflower you ask? I got hungry and dipped it into ranch dressing and ate it while I was cooking. Enjoy! Yummo!

This sounds delicious but is much more work than I would want to have. I like to cook, but not enough to go to all that extra effort. Nice hub, though.

No I always roast extra ones than freeze them and use them as I need them in other recipes. I also put them in olive oil to flavor it. Thanks for your comment and happy to see you are still striving here. I enjoy your writings and your support. Thanks again Faith Reaper! Suzzy

I love stir fry and you are right about it being soggy, so love your recipe and photos! I really love garlic too. In the recipe, you say to use six garlic cloves/pieces, but the photo looks like six whole garlic bulbs/heads, which is a lot of garlic. Do you use all of that in the one recipe?

Up, awesome, useful and interesting and sharing

God bless, Faith Reaper
