Stir Fried Beef with Snow Peas Cooking Recipe

Stir Fried Beef with Snow Peas Cooking Recipes

Ingredients :

1 pound

3 tablespoons

1 teaspoon



2 tablespoons

2 cups

1/2 cup


1 teaspoon

flank steak

soy sauce


cloves garlic


vegetable oil

snow peas


chicken stock cube

dark sesame oil

Method :
  1. Slice the flank steak into thin pieces, cutting against the grain of the meat, and combine in a bowl with the soy sauce.

  2. Leave to marinate for 10 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, in a small cup, mix the cornstarch with 2 tablespoons of cold water and set aside.

  4. Pass the garlic through a garlic press, and chop the green part of the scallions.

  5. Heat the oil in a wok over high heat, until it just starts to smoke (you can also cook this in a nonstick skillet but keep the heat a little lower for the good of the pan).

  6. Add the beef (it will have absorbed most of the soy sauce) and garlic and stir-fry until the beef is just starting to brown, about 3 minutes.

  7. Add the snow peas and scallions and stir-dry for 1 to 2 minutes.

  8. Pour in the water and add the half stock cube and the sesame oil.

  9. Bring to a boil and pour in the cornstarch water mixture.

  10. Stir well until the mixture thickens, which will be right away.

  11. Serve immediately over white rice, with extra soy sauce on the side if desired.

Serves 4

Flank steak is an underrated cut of beef, perhaps because some cooks treat it like a T-bone, and then it's tough and chewy. It needs to be quickly cooked and served right away to be tender, and a stir-fry is ideal.

This one is particularly fast because you don't have to prep and blanch a vegetable. Snow peas require very little handling and no precooking for a stir-fry, unlike broccoli. If you buy them from a salad bar, they'll already be topped and tailed and washed. This dish cooks very quickly, so make sure you start the rice before you even slice up the meat.
