DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse rice in pot, and cook (follow package directions).
  • While the rice is cooking, slice flank steak in thin slices (approximately 2 inches long by a quarter inch wide) and place in marinade.
  • Make sure that the steak is coated in marinade.
  • Wash pea pods and pinch off the ends.
  • Chop the green onions and slice ginger.
  • Heat large skillet on high heat.
  • Drop 1 tbsp olive oil onto skillet.
  • Put meat and marinade in skillet and fry until brown.
  • Add more olive oil if necessary.
  • Add ginger and green onions to skillet.
  • Fry 1 minute.
  • Add the pea pods and water chestnuts.
  • Fry until pea pods are hot but not soggy.
  • The rice should be finished by now.
  • Serve stir-fry over rice.
  • NOTES: I use small package of Green Giant frozen Sugar Snap Peas so I don't have to wash and prepare the fresh vegetables.
  • I microwave them for 2 minutes to defrost them.
  • You could also substitute other vegetables for the pea pods such as chopped broccoli or chopped green peppers.
  • You can also add more vegetables, such as carrots and/or peppers.
  • I also buy the steak "thin sliced", and cut those slices up.
  • Makes it cook really fast and a bit more fun to eat.
