Beef, Shiitake and Snow Pea Stir Fry

  • Yield 4 servings

Tender cuts of sirloin are lightly fried with mushrooms, snow peas and onions in this tasty dish.


1 pound sirloin steak, cut into 2-inch long, 1/4-inch thick slices
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger
8 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stemmed, thickly sliced
8 ounces snow peas
1 bunch green onions, sliced
1 cup fresh cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
5 tablespoons hoisin sauce
2 teaspoons chili-garlic sauce


  1. Begin by seasoning the beef with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add ginger and mushrooms until mushrooms are tender, about 3 minutes.
  2. Next, add the beef to the skillet until beef browns but still remains a bit pink in the center, about 1 minute.
  3. Add snow peas, half of the green onions and half of the cilantro, stir-fry for about 1 minute.
  4. Now, stir in hoisin sauce and chili-garlic sauce and continue to saute until peas are crisp and slightly tender, for an additional 1-2 minutes.
  5. Season with salt and pepper and transfer to a serving bowl. Garnish with remaining cilantro and green onions. For a warm entree, serve immediately. Or if you’d like a cooler, more refreshing dish, chill in refrigerator and serve over cool udon noodles.
