Beef with Snow Peas - Recipe

Try this with fried rice!

Serving: 3
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

# 1 sliced lb. flank steak
# 2 tbsp dark soy sauce
# 1 tbsp dry sherry
# 1 tbsp cornstarch
# 1 tsp sugar
# 3 tbsp corn, peanut or canola oil
# 2 unpeeled, 1 x 1/8 inch slices ginger root
# 1/4 lb snow peas, ends snapped off and strings removed
# 1 (1 scant cup) 8 oz can sliced water chestnuts

1. Place the beef in a bowl, stir in the soy sauce, sherry, cornstarch and sugar, and mix well. Set aside.
2. Pour the oil into a wok or stir-fry pan and place over high heat.
3. Add the gingerroot and stir around the pan until the oil is hot; the gingerroot will sizzle.
4. Stir up the beef again and pour it into the hot oil. Stir constantly for about 2 minutes. If the meat sticks to the pan, add a few tablespoons of broth or water, a little at a time. Do not add more than 1/4 cup.
5. Add the snow peas and water chestnuts and continue stirring for about 1 minute, or until the snow peas are tender-crisp.
6. Transfer to a platter and remove and discard the gingerroot, if desired. Serve immediately.
