Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place sliced steak in a large bowl; sprinkle cornstarch over top and toss to coat.

  • Whisk soy sauce and sugar together in a small bowl until sugar dissolves; pour over the steak. Mix and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or overnight.

  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic to the hot oil; cook and stir until tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in oyster sauce and season with salt and pepper.

  • Add snow peas, green peas, carrot, celery, and bell pepper; cook and stir until vegetables are crisp-tender, 7 to 10 minutes. Remove vegetables from the skillet.

  • Remove steak from the marinade, shaking off any excess moisture; discard the marinade.

  • Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in the same skillet. Fry steak in the hot skillet to your desired degree of doneness, 3 to 5 minutes per side for medium. Add the vegetables back to the skillet; mix well and cook until just heated through. Serve hot.
