Chinese Take-a-way Sesame Beef With Snow Peas

Chinese take-a-way is an extremely popular weeknight tradition in my household. Some days I like to enjoy all those same take-a-way flavors without the wait. Here is an extremely popular take-a-way dish which can easily be made right at home.

Full time 20 minutes
Serves 2-4

The needs-

1 lb steak tips, make sure they are nice bite size pieces
1 cup snow peas
2 tbsp water
2 tbsp hoisin sauce
1 tbsp sesame seeds
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp mince garlic
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1/4 tsp ginger paste

The know-

In a small bowl combine water, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, minced garlic, and ginger paste.

Pat steak tips dry, lightly season with salt and pepper.

Heat 1 tsp olive oil in a sauté pan over medium-high heat.

Add steak tips to hot pan and sear evenly for 2-3 minutes per side.

Remove steak from pan and set aside. 

Add in snow peas and toss 3-4 minutes or until crisp and bright green. Drizzle with additional olive oil if needed.

Add steak back into pan and lower heat to medium-low.

Add sauce into pan and toss to completely coat.

Pour onto a serving plate and top with sesame seeds. Serve with rice.
