I love a good stir fry. It’s one of those meals that takes little preparation and cooks up in minutes. Plus I can get a few vegetables into my husband who is pretty much a meat and potatoes kind of guy. He did however enjoy this stir fry with snow peas and shitake mushrooms. Along with some grated ginger and garlic, I made a spicy and slightly sweet sauce which was oh so fragrant throughout the kitchen.
And for a little more spice sprinkle some crushed red pepper.
Beef and Snow Peas Stir Fry
1 pound Steak, (such as Sirloin or Flank) sliced thin
1 tablespoon Fresh Ginger, grated
1 clove Garlic, grated
4 – 6 ounces Fresh Snow Peas
4 – 5 ounces Fresh Shitake Mushrooms, sliced
1/2 cup Green Onion, sliced thin
1/4 cup Soy Sauce
2 teaspoons Chili Sauce
1 teaspoon Hoisin Sauce
1 teaspoon Sesame Oil
2 teaspoons Brown Sugar
Combine soy sauce, chili sauce, hoisin sauce, sesame oil and brown sugar together. Set aside
In a wok or large non-stick skillet heat a drizzle of canola oil over medium high heat. Add the ginger, garlic and mushrooms to the pan. Stir for 2 minutes or until the mushrooms become tender. Add the beef and continue to cook until the meat has browned on the outside leaving a pink center. Add the snow peas and half of the green onions, continue to stir for 1 – 2 minutes or until the snow peas are crisp but tender. Stir in the sauce and continue stirring for 1 minute. Serve alongside rice, top with remaining green onions.
