- 1 ½ lbs. of any thinly sliceable cut of beef (flank steak or tri-tip work perfectly)
- ½ cup soy sauce
- 3 tbsps sherry
- 2 tbsps brown sugar
- 2 tbsps corn starch
- 1 bunch scallions, cut into 1/2 in. pieces
- 4 tbsps minced fresh ginger
- 8 ozs fresh snow peas, with ends trimmed
- 3 tbsps vegetable oil
- Combine soy sauce, sherry, brown sugar, corn starch, scallions, and ginger in large bowl. Slice beef thinly, and remove fat. Add meat to marinade, and toss until coated.
- Heat vegetable oil in a wok over high heat. Add snow peas and stir for 45 seconds. Remove the snow peas from wok and set aside.
- Let wok get very hot again, and, using tongs, add half of the meat mixture to the wok. Spread the meat out as you add it to the wok, but do not stir. Cook for one minute, until the meat browns. Turn meat over, and cook for another 30 seconds. Transfer to a clean plate.
- Let the wok get very hot again, and repeat with the other half of the meat. After turning it, add the first plateful of meat, the remaining marinade, and the snow peas. Stir over high heat for 30 seconds, then turn off heat. Add salt to taste.
