1 1/2 pounds skirt steak, cut into 4-inch-long pieces, then cut against the grain into 1/4-inch-thick slices
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1 serrano chile pepper, seeded and finely chopped
2 teaspoons sugar
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice (1 to 2 limes)
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, grated
1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced
6 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
1/4 pound snow peas or green beans
1 12-ounce can baby corn, drained
1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced (optional)
- Season the steak with salt and pepper. In a medium bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, chile pepper, sugar and lime juice until the sugar is dissolved. Add the beef, toss to coat and set aside.
- In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat the oil until shimmering, about 1 minute. Add the beef and cook, stirring, until cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes.
- Remove the beef from the skillet and set aside. Allow the liquid in the pan to reduce until thickened, about 4 minutes. Add the garlic and scallions and cook 1 minute more. Add the mushrooms and cook for 2 to 3 minutes more. Add the snow peas, baby corn and bell pepper and continue cooking until all the vegetables are crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Return the beef to the skillet and toss to combine.
