This Beef and Snow Peas is a light and easy recipe that is the perfect weeknight dinner. Serve over rice or noodles for a complete meal!
The longer you marinate the beef the more tender, and flavor-filled it becomes. Be sure to marinate it for at least one hour, but overnight makes the beef melt-in-your-mouth good! I like to use a couple of beef sirloin steaks and I slice them as thin as I can. The slices of marinated beef pair nicely with the snow peas. Did you know there are many healthy nutrients in snow peas? They are a source of vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium, iron, magnesium, and other nutrients. They are a great to eat raw or on top of a green salad. I especially love to use them in stir fry recipes. When cooked on a high heat for a short period of time they turn a bright green. They add a sweet flavor and crunchy texture when they aren’t overcooked. I like to serve this Beef and Snow Peas over rice or noodles for a hearty meal.

Beef & Snow Peas
In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, broth, and garlic. Reserve 1/4 cup. Place beef in a resealable plastic bag. Add remaining soy sauce mixture; seal and mix. Refrigerate at least 1 hour. Place cornstarch in a small bowl. Stir in reserved soy sauce mixture until smooth; set aside.
In a nonstick skillet, stir-fry snow peas in 2 tsp hot oil for 3-4 minutes or until snow peas are crisp-tender and bright green. Remove and keep warm. Drain and discard marinade from beef. In same skillet, stir-fry beef in remaining oil for 2 minutes. Stir cornstarch mixture; add to skillet. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Combine with snowpeas. Serve with rice (serve with brown rice if you want to be really healthy!)
