Hi all. I've posted this one on the recipe board before, but thought I'd post it again. It's really yummy.

"a low fat recipe for a traditional Asian stir-fry"

Serving Size : 4

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 pound boneless top sirloin -- trimmed of fat
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 clove garlic -- minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 can sliced water chestnuts
2/3 cup fat-free beef broth
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons water

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
6 ounces snow pea pods, fresh -- can use frozen too, thaw and drain

Heat wok or large nonstick skillet over high heat.

Add oil to coat.

Add garlic and sirloin which has been thinly sliced.

(Partially freezing makes slicing meat across grain easy.)

Stir fry for 3-4 min or till just brown.

Add salt and pepper, stirring in beef broth.

Mix cornstarch, water, and soy sauce.

Slowly stir into broth mixture and bring to a boil and cook till thickened, about one min.
