  • ½ lb flank steak or sub with skirt steak, hanger steak, flat iron steak or tri tip steak
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 1 cup snow peas ends trimmed (or sub with snap peas)
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ inch ginger peeled and sliced
  • ¼ cup water cold
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil or any neutral oil

Beef Marinade:

Stir-fry Sauce:


  • Thinly slice flank steak against the grain. Slices should be just less than ¼-inch thick. Transfer steak slices into a medium bowl. Optional tip: to easily slice steak thinly, freeze thawed flank steak for 45-60 mins. Once it’s hardened on the surface, it'll be much easier to slice into thin pieces with a sharp knife.
  • Marinate beef with Marinade ingredients as listed above for 20 minutes.
  • In a small bowl combine Stir Fry Sauce ingredients. Set aside.
  • In a wok or large frying pan on medium heat, heat vegetable oil or any neutral oil. Fry marinated beef in hot oil in a single layer until 95% cooked. Remove and set aside.
  • Increase to medium-high heat, add ginger, garlic, red bell pepper, snow peas into pan. Then add cold water. Cook until veggies are crisp but tender, about 1 minute.
  • Pour in stir fry sauce. Mix with veggies. Simmer sauce to thicken.
  • Once sauce has thickened, add back in cooked beef. Toss everything together. Serve and enjoy!
