Pan-fried Snow Peas with Beef

Do you like eating snow peas? I do. Snow peas are commonly used in Chinese cooking. I like its sweetness and crunchy texture. Snow peas can be stir-fried with any kind of meat, like chicken, beef or pork. The taste is so good. Best of all, it’s very easy to cook


  • 250 gm snow peas
  • 200 gm beef tenderloin (skirt steak is a good choice for stir fry)
  • 10 straw mushrooms (草菇), canned
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, crushed
  • a dash of Xiao Shing wine
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


  • 2 teaspoons light soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon corn flour
  • 2 teaspoons water


  • 2 teaspoons light soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon oyster sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon corn flour
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • a dash of sesame oil
  • a pinch of white pepper
  1. Trim and rinse snow peas.
  2. Rinse beef and wipe dry. Thinly slide beef tenderloin and stir in marinade and set aside for later use.
  3. Blanch straw mushrooms in boiling water for 2 minutes. Drain well.
  4. Stir fry beef over medium high heat in a wok. When beef 80% done, dish up for later use.
  5. Heat 2 tbsp oil to sauté crushed garlic, put in snow peas and sauté thoroughly. Add raw mushrooms, sprinkle with salt and add a splash of wine. Stir fry quickly. Pour in chicken stock and cook for a while. When the snow peas cooked tender, add beef. Pour in thickening and stir well.  When sauce begins to dry up, dish up. Serve hot.
  1. You can use chicken breast or pork fillet instead of beef. They are very good choices for stir-fry with snow peas.
  2. Don't over-cook snow peas. Otherwise you won't enjoy its crunchy texture.
