Submitted by: admin on April 2, 2020

Serves 4


3⁄4 cup tangerine juice (3 to 4 tangerines)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon light brown sugar
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
1 teaspoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon light brown sugar
1 (12-ounce) flank steak, trimmed and sliced thin across grain on slight bias
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
1 tablespoon black bean sauce
1 teaspoon grated tangerine zest
1⁄4–1⁄2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 large onion, halved and cut into 1⁄2-inch wedges
10 ounces snow peas, stems and strings removed
2 tablespoons water


  1. FOR THE SAUCE: Whisk all ingredients together in small bowl and set aside.
  2. FOR THE STIR-FRY: Combine soy sauce and sugar in medium bowl. Add beef, toss well, and marinate for at least 10 minutes or up to 1 hour, stirring once. Meanwhile, combine garlic, ginger, black bean sauce, tangerine zest, pepper flakes, and 1 teaspoon vegetable oil in small bowl.
  3. Drain beef and discard liquid. Heat 1 teaspoon vegetable oil in 12-inch nonstick skillet over high heat until just smoking. Add half of beef in single layer, break up any clumps, and cook, without stirring, for 1 minute. Stir beef and continue to cook until browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer beef to clean bowl. Repeat with 1 teaspoon vegetable oil and remaining beef. Rinse skillet clean and dry with paper towels.
  4. Add remaining 1 tablespoon vegetable oil to skillet and heat until just smoking. Add onion and cook, stirring frequently, until beginning to brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Add snow peas and continue to cook until spotty brown, about 2 minutes longer. Add water and cook until vegetables are crisp-tender, about 1 minute. Clear center of skillet, add garlic mixture, and cook, mashing mixture into pan, until fragrant, 15 to 20 seconds. Stir mixture into vegetables. Return beef and any accumulated juices to skillet and stir to combine. Whisk sauce to recombine, add to skillet, and cook, stirring constantly, until thickened, about 30 seconds. Serve.
