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
- 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.
- Next, add the beef to the skillet until beef browns but still remains a bit pink in the center, about 1 minute.
- Add snow peas, half of the green onions and half of the cilantro, stir-fry for about 1 minute.
- 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.
- 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.
