Stir-Fried Beef and Snow Peas


1 lb beef sliced thinly
2 tbsp soy sauce
5 tbsp hoisin sauce
2 tbsp dry sherry
veggie oil
1 onion sliced thinly
1 tsp chopped garlic
1 tsp chopped ginger
1 carrot sliced thinly
1 lb snow peas
8oz can bamboo shoots/bean sprouts, drained

Put the strips of beef in a bowl, add soy and hoisin sauce, dry sherry and stir together. let marinate while you are cooking the vegetables.

I personally added fresh chopped ginger, garlic, salt and pepper to the beef and let it sit for 5 min then addedd the liquid 'gredients and all this was done THE NIGHT BEFORE.

add oil to large non-stick wok. add onion, garlic, ginger, carrot, and snow peas and stir fry for 5 min or until softened.

add beef and marinade to wok and stir-fry for 2-3 min or until tender. add bamboo shoots and stir fry for another minute.

2-3 minutes??? i like my meat well done so it was longer than 3 minutes.

transfer to warm serving dish and serve with cooker rice or noodles.

I bought some chow mein noodles to add a final and authentic touch and ate it with white rice. some wasabi sauce would have set this off as well. happy eating!
