Awhile back, I found Vsoy Meatless Vegan Soy Beef Slices on Amazon for hubby to try as a quick beef alternative. The bag contains about 9 servings of dried soy “beef” you can store in your pantry.
And simply hydrate in water for a few hours in your fridge before cooking. The soy slices really do look eerily like beef and a realistic texture for having just four ingredients and 84 calories per serving.
I have been having fun with them too tossing into simple stir fries and tonight really needed to be simple after a crazy work day. It’s scary how so many ginger dressings and stir fry sauces contain so much oil. This stir fry sauce recipe does not, it packs creaminess from tahini blended with ginger, garlic, and savory tamari with a playful hint of sweetness.
Better Ginger Sesame Stir Fry Sauce
- 2 tbsp. tahini
- 2 cloves garlic
- 4 tbsp. tamari
- 1” chunk of fresh ginger
- 2 tbsp. maple syrup
- 3 tbsp. rice vinegar
Place all ingredients into a high speed blender and blend to a smooth and creamy texture. Stir fry veggies and protein to cook in just a little bit of water or veggie broth using a non-stick wok at medium-high heat for 10-15 minutes. Reduce heat and pour in stir fry sauce and stir fry for another 5 minutes to blend. Serve and enjoy! Sauce makes 2-4 servings.
I stir fried the soy “beef” first to give it a nice texture, then added in the veggies to cook. The sauce coated the large stir fry nicely.
And added a creamy and tangy ginger flavor, savory, little sweet, and bright. Perfect for a simple and fast meal.

Oh wow, that really does look just like beef! I’m going to have to try it. Thanks so much!
Yes and surprisingly good for the simple ingredients.
Nice find! Fridge space is always limited so a dry, shelf-stable protein is very appealing. I really want to try this one, and the sauce recipe makes it sound especially delicious.
Thanks and agreed and it’s simple to work with for fast meals.
