Sweet Soy Beef Stir Fry


1/2 pounds skirt steak, cut into 4-inch-long strips about 1/4 thick

Salt and freshly ground pepper

1/4 cup Take Out sauce

A serrano chile pepper, seeded and finely chopped

2 teaspoons coconut sugar

2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice

10-ounce can baby corn, drained

Grated cloves garlic

4 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced

1/4 pound snow peas or green beans

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced (optional)


Season the steak with salt and pepper. In a bowl, whisk together the Take Out sauce, chile pepper, sugar and lime juice until the sugar is dissolved. Add the beef, toss to coat and set aside.

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat the oil until shimmering, about 1 minute. Add the beef and cook, stirring, until cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes.

Remove the beef from the skillet and set aside. Allow the liquid in the pan to reduce until thickened, about 4 minutes. Add the garlic and scallions and cook 1 minute more. Add the mushrooms and cook for 2 to 3 minutes more. Add the snow peas, baby corn and bell pepper and continue cooking until all the vegetables are crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Return the beef to the skillet and toss to combine.
