I love the crunchiness that snow peas give this dish and I love the tender beef. The sauce is SO good and you’ll want to drizzle it all over rice.

It’s a giant bowl of comfort and going to be your new favorite way to have take out…but in ;)

Don’t forget to check out the video below!! It’s right above the recipe.

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

This was AMAZING! Such great flavors that melded so well together. We doubled the recipe for our family of three (very hungry people), and ended up with just enough for me for lunch the next day - fighting my husband and daughter all the way for it ;) thank you!!!

Be careful if not using low sodium soy sauce, I made this recipe using regular japanese soy sauce. I almost halved the amount called for in the recipe and added extra water to keep the liquid to cornstarch ratio. For me, it was slightly salty. Next time I make this, I will keep in mind I can always add extra soy sauce later if it isn’t salty enough. I wonder how a touch of vinegar and ginger might change the recipe....

Julie, thank you so much! The whole family loved this, even the picky teen that doesn’t like veggies. I did double for a family of four, but made no other changes. . . simply delicious!
