Easy Pepper Steak ™

This is an easy recipe for pepper steak. I've used New York strip but you can also use beef strips that have been pre sliced.

1 lb sliced beef
1 onion
1-2 peppers
1-/8 - 1/4 tsp each: salt, pepper (adjust for taste)
1- 2 T oil
1/4 tsp diced fresh ginger
2 tsp low sodium soy sauce
1 tsp cornstarch
1/2 c snow peas
1/3 - 1/2 c water (adjust as needed)

In a bowl combine: sliced beef, salt, pepper, ginger, soy sauce. Stir to coat beef and let marinate in refrigerator for a few hours. 

Peel, rinse and slice onion, set aside in bowl. Seed rinse and slice peppers, add to onions. Rinse, cut ends of snow peas. Cut snow peas in half, add to other vegetables. 

Preheat saute pan over medium high heat, reduce heat to medium and add oil. Add beef to pan and stir fry for 6- 10 min. Remove from pan and transfer beef to a clean bowl.  Add onions, peppers, snow peas to pan and stir fry for 5--7 min. Return beef to pan. 

In a measuring cup combine water and cornstarch, mix well to dissolve cornstarch. 

Push beef and vegetables to sides of pan to make well in middle of pan. Pour mixture into 
pan. Let liquid reduce for 1 min.  Stir to coat vegetables and beef with sauce. 

Serves 4.
