– 1 c. carrots, thinly sliced – 1 1/2 c. broccoli florets – 1 c. whole sugar snap peas – 1 large red bell pepper, sliced – 1 lb. beef sirloin, trimmed of any excess fat and sliced thinly – 2 Tbsp. olive oil Sauce: – 3/4 c. water – 1/4 c. soy sauce – 3 Tbsp. corn starch – 3 Tbsp. Hoisin sauce – 2 Tbsp. brown sugar – 1/4 c. chopped peanuts, for topping


Step 1

In a mixing bowl, mix together the sauce by whisking together the water, soy sauce and corn starch. Whisk well to prevent any lumps. Add in the Hoisin sauce, and brown sugar and whisk until everything is well combined. Set sauce aside.

Step 2

In a large skillet, add the carrots, broccoli, peas and bell pepper, and 2/3 cup of water. Place skillet over medium high heat and bring the water to a simmer. Lower the heat to medium low, and steam the vegetables for approximately 5 minutes.

Step 3

Transfer the vegetables to a bowl, and cover to keep warm. Vegetables will still be slightly firm. Drain off any excess water.

Step 4

Place hot skillet back on to cook top and bring to medium high heat. Add olive oil. Add the sliced and trimmed sirloin and brown until no pink remains. Drain off any excess fat.

Step 5

To the hot skillet with the browned beef, add the steamed vegetables. Pour the prepared sauce over the top of the beef and vegetables. Heat the ingredients over medium-high head and stir occasionally.

Step 6

Once sauce begins to thicken, remove from heat. Top with chopped peanuts and serve right away while hot. You can also transfer to meal prep dishes for meals throughout the week.
