Found this recipe in “Style at Home” – a whole section of recipes with a take-out theme except you don’t take out!  I picked the easiest one for tonight’s dinner and the meal was delicious.  Note:  make sure you  have a pot of rice simmering so it’s ready at the same time as the beef.

Ginger scallion beef with oyster sauce

1 1/2 lbs flank steak trimmed                     1 tbsp vegetable oil

1 tbsp minced garlic                                       7 oz snow peas, strings removed

2 tbsp minced fresh ginger                           4 green onions, sliced 1/4 thick

2 tbsp mirin                                                      1/4 cup oyster sauce

1 tbsp sesame oil                                             1 tbsp low sodium soy sauce

2 tbs sake

Cut the flank steak in half lengthwise into 2 long pieces, then cut across the grain into thin slices.  In a large bowl, stir together the garlic, ginger and mirin.  Add the flank steak and marinate for 20 minutes.

Heat the oils over medium-high heat in a wok or large sauté pan.  Working in 2 batches, sear the beef slices until no longer pink, add the snow peas and continue to cook until bright green about 2 minutes.  Add the onions, oyster sauce, soy sauce and sake and cook 2 minutes more until the beef and vegetable are saucy and hot.  Serve immediately over cooked rice.  Best thing about this recipe is that it’s quick and not much clean-up – one pot!

PS – I used sugar snap peas as I had a whole bag in the fridge and didn’t want to waste – turned out well but I think it would of been better with the snow peas.


Ok two pots – one for the rice!
