Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 pound piece sirloin, 1-inch thick
  • 2 pounds Idaho potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • Salt
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable, peanut or canola oil
  • 2 large red bell peppers, seeded and sliced
  • 1 large green bell pepper, seeded and sliced
  • 1 bunch scallions, cut into 2 to 3-inch pieces on bias, greens and whites
  • 2 cups shelled frozen edamame
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup yellow mustard
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • A few dashes hot sauce
  • Handful fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • Handful fresh dill, chopped
  • Handful fresh chives, chopped
Directions

Pop the meat in the freezer for a few minutes to stiffen it up for slicing.

Place potatoes in a pot and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil. Salt the water and cook the potatoes until tender, 12 to 15 minutes. Drain.

Halve the steak lengthwise then very thinly slice the meat. Heat the oil in a very large skillet over high heat. When oil wafts smoke and ripples, add the meat and stir-fry until caramelized 3 minutes. Add peppers and stir-fry 2 minutes then add in scallions and edamame for 2 minutes more. Stir together the sugar, soy, mustard and ketchup and pour over stir-fry the last minute of cooking. Season, to taste, if necessary.

Mash potatoes with buttermilk, salt and pepper, hot sauce, parsley, dill, chives, adjust seasoning with salt and pepper, to taste, and serve with stir-fry on top!

Very good but doubled the sauce and added 1 table spoon crushed wet ginger. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The best part for me is the sweet and sour sauce. It's quick and easy and made from everyday things I have in the cabinet. I love not having to go to the store to buy special ingredients and I can use it on my chicken when I'm in a hurry to make something quick for my kids. Love it!!! Thanks alot Rachel Ray. ; item not reviewed by moderator and published
I didn't have the green pepper or the green onion, so I just used the red pepper, a sweet onion, and 2 cloves of chopped garlic. I also added more brown sugar to the sause because I have a picky eater that loves anything sweet. All in all everyone loved it and my husband has requested it to be a weekly meal. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I personally did not care for this, but my husband loved it. I might make it every couple of months to please him, but I think there are so many better sweet and sour stir fry's out there, especially when you consider the cost of the ingredients. Red Bells where I live can be 1.99 a piece! Also, I could not find edamame so I substituted sugar snap peas. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this recipe tonight for dinner and my husband and I loved it!!!!!!!!!! I had second thoughts after the mixed reviews with the "sauce thing". The sauce was quite good and was very tangy. Lots of Vitamin C with all the peppers and I made brown rice with the dish. Very good and will make again! Thanks Rach! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Not good. I followed the recipe exactly. The sauce tasted like the ingredients - a mixture of ketchup and yellow mustard. Yuck. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I just made this meal and it was so delicious! My husband just loved it. It was very easy to make and I will be making again, soon. Would highly recommend this recipe to everyone. Try it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dish was quite simple to make. I ran to GreenLife after work and grabbed the fresh ingredients. It was done in no time. I changed just a couple of things due to personal preference. I served it over rice that I cooked in chicken stock instead of the ranch potatoes, although I will have to try the ranch potatoes another time. They sounded wonderful. I also added cremini mushrooms to the stir-fry. Next time, I'll make a little extra of the sweet and sour sauce as we like things really saucy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Just hearing the ingredients in the sauce can turn you away from this recipe but it is tasty. I served it over noodles and made a more traditional stir fry with red and grenn pepeers, carrots and broccoli. I shared the sauce recipe with my sister and she says it is a winner. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I didn't try it over the potatoes because it really didn't float my boat for taste buds. I used the stir fry over Basmati Rice and it wasn't anything to write home about, but I was surprised at the flavor of the ketchup, mustard, brown sugar and soy sauce together. It wasn't nasty, but definitely wasn't the greatest either. One of those meals that if you have everything for it and can't think of what else to make with it, give it a whirl. Works decently well with chicken and mixed veggies as well. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Ok, I have to admit. Sometimes Rachael kind of freaks me out with her off the wall combinations of foods. This time was no different. I saw the show where she made this, and I was intrigued. I'm always looking for a good beef recipe ( I feel bad constantly feeding hubby chicken), and I'm so glad I gave this one a chance. The ketchup, mustard, brown sugar, soy sauce sounded beyond gross to me, and I almost didn't make it, but boy am I glad I did.. The sauce was awesome, and once it cooked down, it lost the "ketchup-y" consistency and also gained a great tang with the mustard. I didn't used the edamame, (mostly because the only ones in my supermarket where still in their pods and I didn't have the time to fuss with pods!). So, I subbed broccoli for it and it was great. I didn't do the smashed potatoes with it, something about stir fry and mashed potatoes didn't seem appetizing. So, I made it with brown rice to up the healthy factor and I had a home run dinner. And, unlike many of Rach's other recipes, this one truly is a 30 minute meal. ( Sorry Rachael, you know I love you but I can't tell you how many times you're "30-minute-meals" have turned into a an hour long production and then some.) This has just become my go-to week night meal on a time crunch. Plus, all the veggies and brown rice make it super healthy. And....in response to another comment about this being unhealthy. I guarantee you this is WAY WAY WAY more healthy than anything you will get in a take out box. So there. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was a delicious dinner. Like other posts, the sound of the combination of ingredients for the "sweet and sour" sounded very different than any other stir fry I've made. It is and it is delicious! The only changes I made were to season the steak before it went into the hot pan and I added fresh chopped garlic. I also substituted a more "traditional" vegetable stir fry, i.e., julienned carrots, zucchini, red onion, red, green and yellow peppers,instead of the edamame and it was very flavorful. Also served it over the fettucine which another poster mentioned, fabulous alternative to the rice! Great job, again, Rachel! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband and I love steak so this was a winner for us. The sauce ingredients did sound a little odd but worth a try. I served this with brown rice and tofu noodles instead of mash potatoes . I also used a lot more veggies because I am a veggie fanatic. I added fresh green snap peas, red cabbage (as mentioned by another commenter), broccoli (this is excellent with it), and bean sprouts. I ended up getting shallots at the store instead of chives..oops but turned out good anyway. I also used one New York strip steak and one sirloin steak. I think the sauce is great and will make this dish again!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is super easy and filling. I serve mine with pasta instead of the mashed potatoes. At first I thought the combination sounded weird, but I was pleasantly surprised. My husband couldn't even guess what was in it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Loved the sauce on this...sounded strange but tastes great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have made this sweet and sour sauce with beef, chicken and pork stir fry and it taste great with all. It is so easy to make with ingrediants we always have in the house. I love it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Had a great time fixing it, and really enjoyed this meal. Unlike other reviews I really enjoyed the sauce. I thought it added a good zing to the meal. We added red onion to this already great stir fry recipe, and the onion made it that much better! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I needed something good and something fast. Wednesday cooking time gets cut in half because of needing to leave for church. When I get home, I need something that will not be the same old same old meal. My husband had defrosted the sirloin for Tuesday so I knew I needed to cook the sirloin today. So, I jumped on the food network site in hopes of finding an easy recipe that I had all the ingredients for. THIS WAS IT!! I was uneasy about making it after reading some of the negative reviews but then thought...opinions are like brains...everyone has one. I mixed the sauce and WOW!!! I loved it. I did substitute some of the ingredients as we are diabetic and my husband must watch his salt intake, so I used low sodium soy sauce. I also used steam rice instead of mash potatoes and added frozen peas and fresh cabbage. The whole dish turned out great and even my teenager loved it. Just remember people, never not try something just because someone else's taste buds doesn't like it, is stupid. For instance, not everyone likes chitterlings but their are lots of people that do (excluding me). item not reviewed by moderator and published
Rachael calm down. I am sorry, but some foods are not meant to be combined. Americans really need to move away from the crap that we eat. All the sodium in this meal is enough for 2 weeks and I cannot even imagine what it would take to digest a meal like this without some sort of discomfort. Please, make some foods that are natural and healthy that we can feel good about eating. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love Rachael and her recipes, but this one was not good at all. The ketchup, mustard, etc... sauce ruined the dish. It would have been better with bottled teriyaki. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe. Hubby and I both enjoyed it. Next time I'll cut out one of the red bell peppers (a little too much peppers for our taste) and add some pineapple. I didn't use the endarme (looks too much like lima beans for hubby) and replaced the yellow mustard and brown sugar with honey mustard and served it with rice. YUMM-O. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this stir fry last night for my boyfriend and I! We both loved the was the sauce complimented the meat and veggies! In stead of making the potatoes, I piled it on top of a whole wheat pasta, like some of the other reviews suggested. I also paired it with the red cabbage that she made on this episode as well! This has been on of the best dishes I've made! So good and so easy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this with London Broil. It was quick, easy &amp; my family loved it ! The sauce was delicious! I will definitely make it again in the future! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I am a huge Rachel Ray fan. I make her recipes at least once a week. This is by far the WORST recipe I have ever made. I thought it was odd to put ketchup and mustard in a stir fry dish, but since the reviews were mostly favorable, I thought I'd give it a try. I would recommend you skip this recipe and move on to her other delicious dishes. I just made it and have decided I will eat grilled cheese for dinner instead. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I needed a quick stir fry sauce. When I did my search on FN I knew Rachel would have a recipe with ingredients that I actually had on hand. I was skeptical and as always added my own twist. I subbed 2 table spoons of splenda instead of brown sugar and added 1 tps of peanut oil. As in the reviews I added spaghetti. It was great. My kids (5 &amp; 7) were disgusted initially, but in the end they ate it all. I will never buy bottled stir fry sauce again either! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I really liked this meal, but my wife only gave it a "3", so I split the difference. The sauce complimented the meat and veggies well, and it went well over mashed 'tators. Will make again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dish was simply delicious. I substituted fettucine noodles in place of the potates and I feel it made the dish. The brown sugar and mustard mixed just right with the vegetables and meat. I added some minced garlic for some extra zest and was happy I did. Highly recommend this recipe and cannot wait to make it again! Sooo easy by the way! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This meal was everything I was looking for. Different, filling, fresh. And one of the best comfort foods I have ever had. Thanks Rach! Danielle item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made the stir fry in less than 15 minutes, super quick. I didn't have edamame so I skipped it, and I served the stir fry over leftover spaghetti noodles. Surprisingly tasty. I'll definitely make it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We saw this on tv and made it the next night! This is so easy to make and super yummy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This stir fry is by far the best one I have ever made. The sauce is outstanding. The first time I made this, I added rice and the second time I added thin pasta. Both are wonderful. I will never buy sweet and sour sauces in a jar again. Also add fresh pineapple chunks. It adds a night touch to the dish. Rachael, you did it again. So easy and so delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It's not of strictly Asian origin but as Rachel said, you CAN make high-quality Chinese take-out at home without any special ingredients from a gourmet store. My husband inhaled two platesful and there were no complaints from my two boys, ages 5 and 7, who are (as you might expect) very picky eaters. Great meal! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I didn't think the potatoes would pair with a stir-fry but with that thick, savory almost-gravy-like sauce with a ketchup base for me they sure did. I used dried dill and parsley in the potatoes, lightly because someone said the spices were overwhelming. I didn't have endarme so I used sugar snap peas which I cooked a couple of minutes before adding to the dish. My husband and I devoured it. Easy make. A real keeper. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is by far one of the best recipes I have ever made!! Everyone at eit up!! I did take a short cut and used Betty Crocker butter and chive potatoe mix and added ranch dressing!! YUMMO!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
this was soo good and very easy!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The stir-fry sauce was easy and unique. Unfortunately, a handful of herbs (each) is too much and the potatoes were not as good as we had hoped. I would say a tablespoon or so would be enough of each. I would try it again though. item not reviewed by moderator and published
What? It's not even under 30 minutes and ketchup, mustard, and edamame? What was Rachael thinking? Where's good ol' fashion Rachael Ray? item not reviewed by moderator and published
I saw your show on Saturday and could not wait to make this. The stir fry was out of this world and my husband helped me in the kitchen. He also said this ranks right up there with one of the BEST meals I have made for him. Thank you :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was easy to do and was very great to eat. I work and come and have few hours to come up with something to eat before my husband goes to work. These meals are great to cook in that amount of time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
One of Rachel's best sauces. The dill was a little overwhelming in the potatoes though. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Married with children, it gets tough to come up with something tasty &amp; easy to cook every night. After watching Rachel Ray make this dish on her show it looked really good so I tried it. We all LOVED it! The sauce sounded weird but tastes great. We did not make the mashed potatoes, rice sounded better, but we did make the cabbage slaw and it was dynamite also! We love this meal and will make it many times :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
The sweet and sour sauce is pretty good, but the overall dish was just ok. I dont think i'm a fan of stir-fry on top of mashed potatoes. I wouldnt make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these separately and served the stir fry with rice and the slaw salad, and the potatoes with a different dish. The stir fry was EASY and pretty good and didnt taste overly like condiments. Potatoes were great, will definitely make those again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My co-worker made this and let me taste it. It was full of flavor and absolutely delicious! I got the recipe do I can make it myself. item not reviewed by moderator and published

The stir fry was just OK, but with the buttermilk potatoes it was awful. I do not recommend these items together in one meal, let alone on the same plate. Elizabeth item not reviewed by moderator and published
I didn't really like the stir-fry and the potatoes together, but individually these are great dishes. I prefer the stir-fry served over brown rice. The stir-fry comes together so quickly, and no problems getting the kids to eat their veggies when I serve this! I think the ranch mashed potatoes pair better with grilled chicken or steak. Go easy on the dill though; if you use too much it is very overpowering. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very good and easy to make. The sauce for the stir-fry had me scared, but it turned out to be sooooo yummy! My husband and kids all loved it and had 2nds. I definitely plan to have this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I just had to try this recipe; I was afraid that the mustard would overpower it as when I tasted the sauce before cooking it BUT WAS I EVER SO SURPRISED, after it was cooked we didn't taste the mustard, just a wonderful sweet and sour sauce. Thanks again for another great recipe Rachel Ray!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family loved it. It was very flavorful and easy to prepare. I also added sliced mushrooms with the peppers and served it over rice. I will definitly make this one again and again!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This time, I loved this recipe..the taste is amazing, the texture is just right and the smell is fabulous..It's exactly as you find it in restaurants.I added some sesame seeds too and am planning to add mushrooms as well.I didn't have edamames, so i substituted it with green peas..I guess we can try the same thing with chicken and i believe it's gonna taste just great as the beef.Thank you Raychel. item not reviewed by moderator and published
i thought i was doing a good recipe until i got to the tasting part. then, i tasted them and wanted to just through them out! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was so easy to prepare and was very similar to what I used to cook. By adding the sauce during the last minute it provided the wow-factor that was missing. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I had my doubts about the combo of mashed potatoes, stir fry, with sweet sour sauce, but it was excellent. The flavors melded together perfectly. I used a London Broil that I had in the freezer and it was a bit tough, so next time I'll use the sirloin as the directions call for. Altogether,a really great meal. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yummo to Rachael This was better than takeout that you can ever get In my recipe i used turkey strips rather than the sirloin and its was so yummo and the sweet and sour sauce was easy and ever so tasty very quick and easy meal to make potatoes were also great buttermilk really adds a lot a flavor and the fresh herbs make the potatoes so tasty I also added a handful of fresh spinach to my potatoes and it made the meal delightful. I also used small red potatoes and chopped them in half and made them that way delish will be making this a lot way to go rach item not reviewed by moderator and published
My very picky teenaged son loved this recipe.My husband who is not a steak eater also loved this recipe. I loved it as well. I will be making this again. It really did only take about 30 minutes. Thanks Rach. Gayle T. Houston, Tx. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We loved the stir fry. We're were a little skeptical about the sauce going into it, but the sauce had great flavor. We loved it. We didn't care too much for the potatoes on their own. We found them to be a little heavy on the herb flavor, but once mixed with the stir fry they were fine. Will definitely make the stir fry portion again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
What a simple recipe and both my husband and son loved it. I happened to have some sirloin on hand and I had all the other ingredients except for the edamame (so I added celery). I didn't even need to print out the recipe, it was that easy! I didn't have all the herbs for the mashed potatoes so I cheated and added about a 1/4 cup of Ranch Dressing to the potatoes and it worked (but next time I'll go for the fresh herbs definitely). Rachel, you are amazing! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I liked the Asian infusion idea. Never would have put this over a mashed potato, but it was wonderful. The only alteration I may make next time is to use water chestnuts instead of the edamame (hubby wasn't keen of that texture.) A lovely, different recipe and very easy to prepare. Thanks, Rachel item not reviewed by moderator and published
