Steps

Hide Images
  • 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.

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