This is a fine, basic stir fry. I would not really call it Szechwan, it lacks the heat one associates with Szechwan, but my problem eater had seconds, and so it's worth making again for me. I subbed cabbage for the snow peas, also used sirloin instead of flank steak. I probably had half the meat but used all of the other ingredients. Also added mushrooms.

this is a super easy stir fry dish. we love hot stuff, so I added some hot sesame oil as I served. The baby corn and pea pods are alwaaaaaaaaaysss a good addition and I was able to pic up some (discount-bargain) round steak sliced very thin for about $1.25.. heck, the corn cost more than that. LOL Tagged in the newest tag and so.. glad we did. good one, KateL.
