Asian Beef with Snow Peas
Here’s a great way to use some of those wonderful snow and snap peas that are coming into season.
3 Tbsp soy sauce
2 Tbsp rice wine
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp cornstarch
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 Tbsp minced fresh ginger root
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1 pound beef round steak, cut into thin strips
8 0z snow peas
In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, rice wine, brown sugar, and cornstarch. Set aside.
Heat oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir fry ginger and garlic for 30 seconds. Add the beef and stir fry for 2 minutes or until evenly browned. Add the peas and stir fry for an additional 3 minutes. Add the soy sauce mixture and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
Lower heat and simmer until the sauce is thick and smooth. Serve immediately.
We served ours over white rice and make up some eggrolls to accompany it.
The great thing about stir-fry is, you can change it up a bit to fit your tastes. Throw in some mushrooms or red pepper, top with green onions… whatever! Enjoy this basic recipe, but make it your own!
