beef stir fry

prep time: 15 minutes
cooking time: 20 minutes
servings: 4

ingredients:

1 lb. flank steak, cut into thin strips
2 tblsp. hoisin sauce
1/2 tblsp. honey
1 tblsp. soy sauce
1 tblsp. red wine vinegar
1 tblsp. rice wine vinegar
2 tsp. chili sauce (such as sambal oelek)
1 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. ground garlic powder
1 tsp. white pepper
1 red/yellow/orange or green pepper, sliced
1/2 an onion, sliced
8 oz. fresh snow peas, sliced at an angle
3 scallions, cut at an angle white and green part

in a medium bowl whisk together hoisin, honey, soy, red and rice vinegar, chili sauce, ginger, garlic and pepper add sliced meat.. set aside.. in a large wok heat two twirls around the pan of sesame oil over high heat.. add meat to the hot pan.. making sure all sides are cooked and getting carmelized.. (you might have to do this in batches depending on the size of your wok or pan) about 3-4 minutes on each side.. remove meat to a plate and set aside.. now add snow peas, onion, pepper and scallions to the pan.. cook on high for about 2 to 3 minutes..making sure to stir often.. add meat back and any juice that has collected on the plate along with any remaining marinade in the mixing bowl..stir every thing together and cook another 30 seconds.. drop to simmer and allow to cook another 10 minutes or so.. meanwhile make your rice noodles according to package directions.. what i did is put some rice noodles down.. tossed them in a little spicy red chili oil.. added my meat and veggies over the top.. added some cilantro and to mine a little red chili flakes and a dash of sriracha..
