Beef with snap peas stir fry

I love fresh, sweet green peas. As a consequence, I need a tasty recipe to tempt me from eating them raw as a snack. This one was a pretty good one.

1 pound beef steak meat
8 oz fresh snap peas
4 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp water
2 tbsp chinese cooking wine
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp Sriracha hot sauce
2 tsp cornstarch
1 tbsp oil
2 tbsp ginger paste
2 tbsp minced garlic

Slice the beef into super-thin slices. Toss with 1 tsp starch. Set aside.

Mix the soy sauce, water, wine, Sriracha, brown sugar and starch.

 Preheat a large pan to hot. Add the oil and when it's almost smoking, add in the beef. Brown quickly, stirring a few times. Do not overcook! Add the garlic, ginger and the peas. Stir fry for about 3 minutes. Pour in the sauce and simmer until it reaches the desired thickness. Serve over rice.
