Beef and Peapods

Author: Heidi Boortz
Servings : 4

Ingredients

  • 1.5 lbs skirt steak or flank steak. Sirloin also works.
  • 1/2 cup Bragg Liquid Aminos
  • 3 Tbsp red wine
  • 2 Tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 Tbsp bottled minced garlic
  • 1 tsp dried ginger
  • 3 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 cup carrot sliced diagonally
  • 1.5 cup snow pea pods
  • 3 each green onion
  • 2 Tbsp cornstarch

Instructions

  • Cut steak thinly against the grain. (Freeze steak for 1 hour, if desired, to make cutting easier.)
  • Add steak, bragg, wine, sugar, garlic, and ginger to a large zip top plastic bag. Seal and shake to combine. Set aside.
  • Add 1.5 T. sesame oil to a large skillet or wok. Heat over medium high heat. Add one sliced carrot. If it sizzles, it’s ready. If not, let it heat a little longer. Once oil is hot, add all carrots. Stir-fry over medium-high heat for 4 minutes.
  • Add steak and remaining oil. Stir to combine. Stir fry steak and carrots an additional 4 minutes. Add peapods. Stir fry 4 minutes or until carrots are tender-crisp, pea pods are bright green, and steak is done to desired doneness.
  • Combine cornstarch and 3 Tablespoons water. Add to pan. Stir well. Stir-fry until thickened, about 30 seconds.
  • Top with sliced green onions.

Notes

Having a good knife will make quick work of slicing meat.  I love this one from amazon.  http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01DDBJF12/?tag=9010nutrition-20
