Snow Peas and Beef
Remove string from snow peas by breaking the blossom end of the bean and pull the strings down the sides. Leave the pea pods whole. Wash and drain. Heat 1 tablespoon oil. Stir fry the pea pods for a minute, only until they are a darker brighter green and not even slightly wilted. Remove.
Heat 3 tablespoons oil until very hot. Mix remaining 1 tablespoon oil into beef slices and add to hot oil. Stir constantly for a minute or two until beef is cooked rare.
In cooking the beef slices, the timing is critical. be sure not to overcook. Add salt and reserved snow peas. Stir until heated; no more.
