Stir-Fried Beef with Snow Peas

Cooking time:  25 minutes for menu      Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

           We don't get good beef for stir-frying here (it's always tough) so I've started using ground beef.  Substitute beef for stir-frying or a flank steak sliced on the bias if you prefer.

Stir-Fried Beef with Snow Peas

Total time: 25 minutes
     Fresh snow peas and cherry tomatoes are great for stir-fries: they cook quickly, add lots of color and get us out of traditional winter fare.
