Beef & Snow Peas and Weekend Potluck #22

Welcome to Flashback Friday & Weekend Potluck!

Our garden is producing a nice harvest of snow peas, so I decided to flashback to this fantastic stir fry that we made again the other night!

Peppered Beef & Snow Peas

from One Lovely Life
◦2 pounds Strip Steak, Thinly Sliced Across Grain
◦½ cups Soy Sauce
◦4 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
◦2 Tablespoons Corn Starch
◦1 Tablespoon Fresh Ginger, Minced (don’t Skip This, It Adds Great Flavor! Peel And Mince Remaining Pieces And Freeze For Another Use)
◦2 teaspoons Cracked Pepper
◦1-½ teaspoon Sesame Oil
◦Pinch Of Red Pepper Flakes
◦8 ounces, weight Snow Peas, Ends Trimmed Off
◦4 whole Green Onions, Sliced
◦4 Tablespoons Oil
◦5 Tablespoons Water

For stir-fry:
In a medium bowl, combine soy sauce, brown sugar, cornstarch, ginger, black pepper, sesame oil, and red pepper flakes. Add steak strips to the marinade and toss to coat.

In a large family skillet, heat 2 Tbsp oil over high heat. Add snow peas and cook 1-2 minutes. Remove from skillet and set aside.

Heat 2 more Tbsp of oil. Add beef strips and green onion to skillet (squeeze steak strips out to leave as much of the marinade in the bowl as possible). Cook on one side 1 minute without disturbing. Flip and cook an additional 30 seconds to 1 minute until no longer pink. Remove from skillet and set aside with snow peas.

Using the same skillet, pour in remaining marinade and add 5 Tbsp water. Allow marinade to come to boil until thickened. (get it nice and hot to kill any raw meat germs) Return peas and beef to skillet and toss with sauce.

Serve over Baked Brown Rice, found here. YUMMY!

Now, for Weekend Potluck #22, let’s take a quick peek back at last week
