  • Yield: Makes 4 servings (serving size: 1 cup stir-fry)
  • Cook time:10 Minutes
  • Prep time:10 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 (12-oz) top-round sirloin steak, thinly sliced crosswise
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 8 ounces snap peas, trimmed
  • 1 red jalapeno pepper, thinly sliced (seeded, if desired, for less heat)
  • 1/4 cup roasted peanuts, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup small mint leaves

Preparation

1. Stir together lime juice, water, and next 4 ingredients (through pepper) in a cup; set aside.

2. Heat a large, heavy skillet (such as cast iron) over high heat; lightly coat with cooking spray. Working in batches, if necessary, add steak to hot skillet in single layer; cook, without turning, until browned on 1 side and almost fully cooked (1-2 minutes). Transfer to a plate.

3. Heat oil in skillet over high heat. Add snap peas and cook until bright green and beginning to blister (2-3 minutes). Add jalapeño, peanuts, reserved beef (with juices), and reserved sauce to pan; cook until beef is done (about 1 minute). Toss with mint. Serve over brown rice, if desired.
