Picked up some Sweet Ginger Sauce at the Asian Market and made one of my favorite quick stir-frys. If you can’t find a Sweet Ginger Sauce, you can substitute just about any stir-fry sauce of your choosing. I really like snow peas in any form and can’t wait for them to be fresh from the garden. Serve with jasmine rice for a nice change.
Sweet Ginger Beef & Snow Peas
- 1 lb sirloin or London broil or skirt steak, sliced thin*
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 8 oz snow peas
- ½ cup sweet ginger sauce
wok or skillet
Heat oil in skillet, add beef and stir fry for 3-5 minutes, push to sides, add more oil if needed and stir-fry snow peas until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Add sauce, stir in beef and peas until completely coated. Cook 1 minute or until heated through. Serve over rice.
*easiest to do if the beef is slightly frozen
If you want to make your own Sweet Ginger Sauce, you can mix together ½ cup soy sauce, 2 tbsp or more of minced ginger, 1 tbsp honey, 1/2 tsp crushed garlic, 1 tbsp white wine or rice vinegar and ½ tsp cornstarch or arrow root. Mix well and heat until thickened – it’s not quite as good, but it’ll do.
