On a cold June evening (50 degrees), it was time to fire up the broiler for another round of "Steak is Boring!" This was really good; poor Thor didn't get any leftovers.
BEEF WITH SNOW PEAS
3 lbs. steak, cut into 1/2" wide strips
2 bags frozen snow peas, thawed
2 cans water chestnuts
3 green onions, chopped
freshly ground pepper
Preheat the broiler. Drizzle olive oil into the bottom of the broiler pan, then arrange the beef strips in it. Sprinkle with ginger, garlic powder and pepper; broil for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip, season the other side, and broil for another 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the beef from the broiler pan to a platter. On the stovetop, whisk 1 tbsp. cornstarch into the pan drippings, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until the drippings thicken. A bit of water should be added if necessary to help loosen the browned bits on the pan. Return the beef to the pan, spread the vegetables in with the beef, stir to coat with the sauce, and broil for another 2 to 3 minutes, until the vegetables are heated through and tender-crisp. Serve with rice or buttered pasta..
