For the Beef:

  • 1 pound thinly sliced beef
  • Kosher salt and black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar

For the sauce:

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili garlic sauce
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

For the Stir Fry:

  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 large red bell pepper, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1 large carrot, thinly sliced on the diagonal
  • 6 oz snow peas
  • 2 green onions, sliced

For Serving:

  • Rice or Noodles
  • Sesame Seeds
  • Fresh cilantro or Thai Basil


  • Season the beef with salt and pepper. Place the sliced beef, cornstarch, and rice wine vinegar in a large bowl and let sit while you make the sauce.
  • To make the sauce, combine the soy sauce, beef broth, rice wine vinegar, ginger, garlic, brown sugar, chili garlic sauce, hoisin sauce, and cornstarch in a small bowl. Whisk until well combined.
  • In a large wok or sauté pan, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Cook the beef in two batches, browning on each side for about 1 to 2 minutes. Remove the beef from the pan and set aside.
  • Add the red bell pepper, carrot, and snow peas to the hot pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the sauce and add the beef. Cook until the sauce thickens, about 2 minutes. Add the green onions.
  • Serve over rice or noodles. Garnish with sesame seeds and herbs, if desired. Serve warm.
