Beef Stir-Fry

2 Tbsp. cornstarch
2 tsp. sugar
6 Tbsp. soy sauce
Beef Stir-Fry!
1/4 c. white wine
1 lb. boneless round steak, cut into thin strips
2 Tbsp. sesame oil
2 Tbsp. onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
fresh ginger, minced (however much you like)
3 c. broccoli florets
2 medium carrots, thinly sliced
1 package (6 oz.) frozen pea pods, thawed
fresh cilantro, chopped
1 can (8 oz.) water chestnuts, undrained
salt and pepper to taste
Hot cooked rice

In a bowl, combine cornstarch, sugar, soy sauce, and wine until smooth. Add beef and toss to coat; set aside. In a large skillet, saute the onion, garlic, and ginger in oil for 2 minutes. Add the carrots, broccoli, cilantro, and pea pods, and stir-fry for another 2 minutes. Stir in water chestnuts. Cover and simmer for 4 minutes. In a different skillet, stir-fry the beef and marinade until meat reached desired doneness. Combine with the vegetables; toss to coat. Serve over rice.

I didn't have broccoli on hand, so I used a green pepper instead. I also added peanuts at the end. It was tasty!
