Short on time? This 25-minute beef and snow pea stir fry is the perfect weeknight dinner option!

Are you guys enjoying the weekly meal plans? It personally helps me out a lot too because I forget how much content I have on this blog. I have almost five years worth of recipes and it’s fun to dig back into the archives and find them and resurface them for you guys!

If you’re having trouble thinking about what to make for dinner tonight, if what I have on week 2’s meal plan isn’t what you had in mind, you should totally run out real quick and get the ingredients for this recipe. 25 minutes is all it takes! I love it!

Growing up, this 25-minute beef and snow pea stir fry was one of my favorite meals that my mom would make. She was seriously super woman. Coming home from a long day of work and still getting dinner on the table for the entire family. Now I’m in her shoes and really respect her for doing what she did to ensure that we wouldn’t have to eat out or eat something unhealthy.

Recipe Notes

If you don't have michiu Chinese cooking wine, you can use mirin, which is Japanese cooking wine.

    Wonderful recipe! Tastes so good. I had to double it for the family and it still turned out well. I also added more veggies (zucchini and onion), but it would have tasted perfect without it.
