Beef and Snow Peas Stir Fry

Mom says to do a bit of the meat at a time so that all the moisture doesn't come out.

12-16 oz beef (flank steak is best), sliced very thin
8 oz snow peas, strung if necessary
1/4 cp soy sauce
1/4 cp dry sherry
1/2 cp water or broth (chicken or beef)
1 T cornstarch
1/4 tsp Sembal Oelik (garlic chili paste)
1/2 T fresh ginger

Combine soy sauce, sherry, water/broth, Sembal Oelik. Stir cornstarch into a bit of water and then add to sauce. Stir. Set aside.

Stir fry ginger for 30 sec on med-high, then add meat and stir fry for 2 minutes. Add snow peas and stir fry another 3 min on med-high. Stir sauce and pour into pan. Stir contents then set heat to low and cover for ca. 5-10 min depending on how well you like the snow peas to be done. Serve over rice sprinkled with green onion sliced thinly on the bias.
