Snow Peas Beef Stir Fry

Snow Peas Beef Stir Fry

Sharing is caring!

I honestly don’t eat snow peas enough for how much I like them. I love how they add a crunch to any dish you add them to, and actually are pretty easy to cook too! This Snow Peas Beef Stir Fry is one of those dishes.

Snow peas always remind me of my Grandpa. When I was little, I ate very much like him – Meat is our favorite. Especially, giant chunks of meat. (Ground meat just didn’t hit the same!) But for some reason Grandpa always loved Snow Peas!

Just fyi – I now obviously also love seafood and veggies, but I will say that giant chunks of meat? Still probably my fave (Mmm, steak…)

Thick Soy Sauce

I do not use regular soy sauce for this recipe. I use Thick Soy Sauce, aka Soy Paste. There’s actually many different types of soy sauce! Thick soy sauce is a lot thicker than your normal soy sauce. It has a richer, sweeter flavor, which is perfect for this dish.

If you can’t find any thick soy sauce, you can actually use regular soy sauce. If you do this route, here’s a couple of recommendations:

  • Add some sort of sweetener. Since Thick soy sauce is more sweet, you are now missing a flavor, so I would recommend adding a bit of sugar or sweetener of your choice.
  • Thicken it. Since Thick soy sauce is, well duh, more thick, you may want to add something to thicken the sauce. To do this, you can mix cornstarch and water in a separate bowl to create a thickener, and then adding it to the dish prior to adding the basil.

Or even more simple – Oyster sauce can often be used as a substitute because it is similar in texture and it is also salty and sweet at the same time.

By the way you can find these sauces, in your local Asian grocery store or even on amazon here:

  • 8 ounces fresh Snow Peas, trimmed

Instructions

In a bowl, mix together the thick soy sauce, rice cooking wine, and cornstarch. Marinade the beef in the bowl or in a ziplock bag for about 10-15 minutes.

Heat oil in a cooking pan or work over high heat. Add the beef, and stir fry for about 1-2 minutes or until the outside is just browned. Remove from heat.

Add the snow peas and dried red chili pepper (optional) in the pan/work and stir fry for 2-3 minutes, or until the snow peas are vibrant green/crisp tender.

Add the beef back in and stir fry for 30 seconds – minute, until beef is cooked to the temperature you want.

Remove from heat and serve!
