Beef Stir Fry with Mushroom and Snow Peas

I do love a good stir fry. They are always flavorful, and they are always quick. Both of those things are a must in a weeknight dinner around this house.

This was a wonderful stir fry. I don’t often use beef this way but it was really great!  The savory mushrooms really paired well with the beef and the crisp snow peas really gave it a great texture.

What you need,

¼ cup soy sauce
¼ cup tamari sauce
4 tbsp. brown sugar
5 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. grated ginger; you can use more if you like it!
2 tsp. rice vinegar
1 8oz steak, thinly sliced
2 cups snow peas
2 cups mushrooms, sliced
2 tsp. olive oil
2 tsp. cornstarch + 2 tbsp. water
¼ cup green onion, chopped
Rice for serving

In a small bowl whisk together the soy sauce, tamari, brown sugar, garlic, ginger and rice vinegar.

Heat one teaspoon of oil over medium high heat in a large non-stick skillet
Cook the mushrooms for 4-5 minutes until softened. Remove from the pan and set aside.

Heat the rest of the oil and cook the steak slices in a single layer for just a minute per side. Add the mushrooms back to the pan and also the snow peas. Cook 1-2 minutes. Add the sauce to the pan and cook 1 minute until bubbly.  Stir in the cornstarch and water mixture and let it thicken for 1-2 minutes.

Sprinkle the stir-fry with the green onion before serving over some rice.

There you have it a great simple dinner all in less than 30 minutes!
Gotta love that!

I have a quick tip for you, if you want to slice your beef really thin put it in the freezer for 20ish minutes before slicing it. Just so it is firm, not frozen. It sure makes thin slices WAY easier‼
