Description

This easy recipe for beef stir-fry with sugar snap peas will make you forget where you put that take-out menu! Full of delicious flavor.


Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked brown rice (or white, if you prefer)
  • 1 pound tenderloin steak, thinly sliced crosswise
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 12 ounces snap peas, strings removed
  • 5 to 6 scallions, white and green parts separated, thinly sliced diagonally
  • 1 tablespoon grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (from about 1 lime)
  • Sesame seeds for garnish

Instructions

  1. Cook the rice according to package directions.  Ten minutes before rice is done, place steak in a medium bowl. Sprinkle with cornstarch, and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat.
  2. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Cook half the steak until browned on one side, 1 to 2 minutes (steak will cook further in step 4); transfer to a plate. Repeat with remaining beef.
  3. Add snap peas, white part of scallions, ginger, red-pepper flakes, and 3/4 cup water to skillet; season with salt and pepper. Cook until snap peas turn bright green, 1 to 2 minutes.
  4. Return steak to skillet until cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat, and mix in green part of scallions and lime juice.
  5. Serve over rice, sprinkled with sesame seeds and lime wedges on the side.
