Szechuan Beef and Snow Peas

Submitted by: MSANNOMALLEY

Introduction

This began as the Szechuan beef and broccoli recipe from "The Biggest Loser Family Cookbook". I altered it to swap the broccoli with snow peas because my husband doesn't like broccoli. I also used sirloin instead of round steak. This is a very, very spicy dish. This also cooks very quickly, so it's a good idea to have everything prepped and ready to go.

Ingredients

    1 pound sirloin steak, sliced into 1/4 inch strips
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    Salt, to taste
    Ground Pepper, to taste
    1 tsp olive oil
    4 cups snow peas (one bag fresh snow peas)
    1 tablespoon minced garlic (about 2 to 3 cloves)
    2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
    1/4 cup bottled Szechuan stir fry sauce

Directions

In a large bowl, combine the steak, garlic powder, salt, and pepper, and toss to combine.

Add olive oil to a large non-stick skillet or wok over high heat. Add snow peas and garlic and cook, stirring until garlic is soft and snow peas are crisp-tender. Remove from pan and set aside, covering to keep warm.

Add 1 teaspoon of sesame oil. When oil is hot, add half the steak and cook until lightly browned on both sides. Transfer steak to bowl with peas and garlic. Repeat with remaining meat and sesame oil. Return all the steak and vegetables to the pan and then remove from heat. Add the sauce and mix well to coat.

  • We did not use bottled Szechuan sauce, but some Orange-Ginger sauce we had on hand. Not the best flavor with the beef and peas--our fault, not the recipe's. - 6/20/12
