Beef with Snow Peas Stir-Fry

This is one of many favorite beef stir-fries, mainly because of the sauce. You can add any veggies you like, I just stuck with snow peas and green onions this time. Go here, here and here for more stir-fries using beef. Of course you can search stir-fries and get all of them.

Beef with Snow Peas

  • 1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp. sherry (don’t use a cooking sherry – get a good brand)
  • 2 tbsp. cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp. ginger, peeled and minced
  • 1-1/2 lbs. flank or round  steak, sliced very thin
  • 3 tbsp. peanut oil
  • 6 scallions, green and white parts
  • 8 oz. snow peas, cut into pieces
  • other veggies if desired
  • crushed red pepper or use a squirt or two of Sriracha sauce
  • I also like to add about 1/2 cup beef broth during the final stir-fry
  • rice of your choice

Combine the first five ingredients. Using 1/3 of the mixture mix with the flank steak and refrigerate. I usually try to marinade this overnight. Set aside the rest of the liquid and refrigerate until ready to prepare this stir-fry.

Blanch the snow peas briefly in the microwave. Heat a skillet and stir-fry the beef with the green onions. Add the reserved liquid, crushed red pepper and snow peas. Stir-fry for just about 30 to 60 seconds. Serve over rice.

    • Thanks Loretta – I had to pull out one of my drafts this week which was okay since I was co-hosting. I enjoy doing it – funny, everyone feels like my students and I am trying to encourage and/or teach them something.

  7. Love stir fries! My family complains, though, that my stir fries are not like those we get from the restaurants. But I think I’m getting better at them. I have to remember super hot pan to start! 🙂


    • Stir-fries are a favorite too and I have a bunch of recipes on my blog; seafood, beef, pork, chicken, vegetarian – love the veggies. I prefer my recipes as the Chinese restaurants are always way too salty. I am always very thirsty after a meal out 🙂
