Asian Beef

I found this recipe on Pinterest. I of course made  a few changes. Dinner was awesome! The sauce in this dish is the perfect mix of sweet and tangy. In order to slice your beef super thin, wrap your meat tightly in saran wrap and place in the freezer for 30 minutes, remove and slice immediately.

1 pound of beef (any sort of steak will do, I used a petite sirloin)
10 Oz mushrooms, sliced about 1/4 inch thick 8 Oz snow peas

1/2 cup of soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
6 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon ginger  (grated or pureee)
2 1/2 tablespoons of brown sugar
2 teaspoons rice vinegar

Mix the lower set of ingredients in a bowl and microwave for a minute and a half. This gently cooks the garlic so it's not as sharp of a flavor. In a large pan, heat a tablespoon of oil until HOT and add veggies. Saute until mushrooms are done and peas are crisp-tender. Remove from pan and add another tablespoon of oil. Heat over medium high. Very carefully put half of your meat in the pan,  be sure to lay your slices flat and not touching. You want to really brown them. Cook 3 minutes or so on each side. Remove the first batch of meat and cook the second. Return meat and veggies to pan and pour the sauce over. Stir well and remove from heat. Serve over brown or white rice.
