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.

    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.

    I have a pork tenderloin that needs to be used, (and the snow peas) so I’ll use that. I’m sure it will be a winner as I love all the ingredients. May add a bit of oyster sauce too.

    Julie, the ads on your site are really getting annoying. They are covering the entire recipe so you can’t read it, and there is no way to click them off. As much as I love your recipes, it’s almost to the point I don’t want to even click to the blog. Sorry, but thought you should know in case no one else is complaining about it.

      Hi Cherie. Thanks for your feedback. I just checked and the ads do not cover the recipe and there is ALWAYS a way to click them off. It is policy that all my ads have that ability. I’m not sure what browser you are in or device, but please email me ( a screenshot so I can send it to my ad management team so we can try to diagnose what is happening. I’m sorry you feel this way but ads pay the bills for this site. There is a WHOLE LOT that goes on behind the scenes with a website that posts recipes and other resources for free/for everyone, such as: photography equipment, food costs, web hosting, my time, and more. If you would prefer to pay a monthly or yearly subscription fee for an ad-free site, please let me know and I can consider that for an upcoming feature. I get very few complaints about ads; I would say average less than 10 complaints per year.
