Beef, Shiitake and Snow Pea Stir Fry

Mushrooms, steak and snow peas combine beautifully in this easy Asian stir-fry.

Yields: 4

Serving size:4 oz steak and 1/2 cup vegetables (1 rounded cup)

Ingredients

1 lb sirloin steak, cut into 2-inch long, 1/5-inch-thick slices

8 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stemmed, thickly sliced
8 ounces snow peas

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.

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.
