Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Cut steak diagonally with the grain into 2-inch-thick slices. Cut slices diagonally across the grain into thin strips. Combine steak, soy sauce, cornstarch, chile-garlic sauce, ginger, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl, and stir until sauce is well blended and steak pieces are coated. Set aside.

  • Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large nonstick skillet or a wok over high. Add snap peas, onion, and bell pepper, and cook, stirring often, until vegetables are starting to soften, about 2 minutes. Add garlic, and cook, stirring constantly, 1 more minute. Remove vegetable mixture from skillet to a plate. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil and all of beef mixture to skillet; cook stirring often, until meat browns, about 2 minutes. Return vegetables to skillet; add water. Stir-fry until sauce is thick and coats mixture well, about 1 more minute. Serve over cooked brown rice, and top with scallions. Add cilantro and crushed red pepper, if desired.
