1
pound beef boneless sirloin steak
1
tablespoon vegetable oil
1
garlic clove, finely chopped
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/8
teaspoon pepper
2/3
cup Progresso® beef flavored broth (from 32-ounce carton)
1
tablespoon cornstarch
2
tablespoons water
1
tablespoon soy sauce
1
teaspoon finely chopped gingerroot or 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1
package (6 ounces) frozen snow (Chinese) pea pods, thawed and drained
Hot cooked rice, if desired
  1. Trim fat from beef. Cut beef with grain into 2-inch strips; cut strips across grain into 1/4-inch slices.
  2. Heat 10-inch skillet or wok over high heat 1 to 2 minutes. Add oil; rotate skillet to coat with oil. Add beef and garlic; stir-fry about 3 minutes or until beef is brown. Sprinkle salt and pepper over beef; stir in broth. Heat to boiling.
  3. Mix cornstarch, water and soy sauce; stir into beef mixture. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Continue boiling 1 minute, stirring constantly (sauce will be thin).
  4. Stir in gingerroot and pea pods. Cook uncovered about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pea pods are crisp-tender. Serve over rice.

Success
Place beef in the freezer for 1 hour before slicing; it will be easier to cut when partially frozen.
Special Touch
Rather than serving with plain rice, serve this stir-fry with Japanese noodles--and don't forget the chopsticks!
