Beef and Snow Peas

My mom gave me this recipe. It is very quick and easy. A perfect weeknight dinner. I suggest doubling the sauce and using low sodium soy sauce so it isn't too salty. Since the beef doesn't cook for too long, you want to get a good cut of steak like sirloin for this recipe. Thinly slice the sirloin steak before cooking. Better yet, buy a package of stir fry meat, so it is already cut and trimmed for you.

What You'll Need:
3 Tbsps soy sauce
2 Tbsps rice wine vinegar
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp cornstarch
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 pound sirloin steak, thinly sliced
1 package of snow peas

In a small bowl, mix together the soy sauce, vinegar, brown sugar and cornstarch; set aside.

Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the garlic and cook for about 30 seconds. Add the beef and cook for additional couple of minutes, until browned. Add the snow peas, cook for a minute and then add the sauce, stirring once before pouring in. Increase the heat a bit until the sauce starts to bubble and thicken a bit. Just a couple of minutes.

Serve over basmati rice.
