Hands-on: 20 minutesTotal: 35 minutes

Serves: 6

Ingredients

  • ¾ lb. sirloin steak
  • 2 Tbsp. soy sauce, divided
  • 1½ Tbsp. dry white sherry
  • ½ tsp. sesame oil
  • 2 tsp. cornstarch
  • 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil, divided
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 8 oz. snow peas, trimmed

Directions

  • Cut the beef across the grain into thin slices approximately 1½" long. Place the beef in a bowl and add 1 tablespoon soy sauce, sherry, sesame oil, and cornstarch. Marinate the beef for 15 minutes.
  • Heat a wok or skillet over medium-high heat until it is nearly smoking. Add 1 tablespoon oil. When the oil is hot, add the garlic. Stir-fry for 10 seconds.
  • Add the beef. Let it sear for 1 minute, then begin stir-frying, stirring and tossing the meat. Remove the beef from the wok after 2 minutes or when it is no longer pink and is nearly cooked through. Drain the meat in a colander or on paper towels.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in the wok or skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is just starting to smoke, add the snow peas. Stir-fry the snow peas, moving them around the pan until they turn dark green (about 2 minutes).
  • Add the beef back into the pan. Stir-fry, combining the beef with the snow peas and remaining soy sauce. Serve hot.
