Beef, Shiitake and Snow Pea Stir-Fry

Beef Shiitake and Snow Pea Stir FryI just finished eating this for dinner and I knew I needed to blog it straight away, it was so delicious. I saw this recipe on Cook Like a Champion and my interest was piqued. It came together in less than 15 minutes, if you serve it with white rice, your whole meal is done. I had never cooked with Shiitake mushrooms before and I know I will be cooking with them a lot more often. They weren't nearly as pricy as I feared and they added so much more than your usual button mushroom.
Beef, Shiitake and Snow Pea Stir-Fry

¾ pound top sirloin steak, cut into 2-inch long, 1/4-inch thick slices
2 teaspoons canola oil
1 ½ teaspoons grated ginger
1 clove of garlic, minced or pressed
4 ounces fresh shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and thickly sliced
4 ounces fresh snow peas
½ cup green onions, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
2 teaspoons Siracha or other chili-garlic sauce
½ teaspoon Sesame oil

Lightly season beef with salt and pepper. In a wok or large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add ginger, garlic and mushrooms. Stir constantly until mushrooms are tender, about 3 minutes. Add beef and continue cooking an additional minute, until the beef is browned on the outside but still pink in the center. Add snow peas, half of green onions. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Stir in hoisin, Siracha and Sesame oil; continue cooking 1-2 minutes, until beans are crisp-tender and beef is cooked through. Season with salt and pepper, if needed. Transfer to bowls and top with remaining green onions. Serve over rice.

My husband, kids and I LOVE Chinese food and are constantly trying to find recipes to recreate our favorites at home. Unfortunately, I've only found one or two that were even remotely close to tasting more "authentic". My husband absolutely despises mushrooms (although he refuses to try them as an adult, which drives me crazy!), but I could see my kids and I going crazy for a dish like this!
