  • Set aside.
  • Heat oil in a heavy skillet (iron is best) or wok over high heat.
  • Add snow peas and stir for 45 seconds.
  • Remove to a separate plate. Set aside.
  • Allow pan to get very hot again.
  • With tongs, add half the meat mixture, leaving most of the marinade still in the bowl.
  • Add half the scallions.
  • Spread out meat as you add it to pan, but do not stir for a good minute. (You want the meat to get as brown as possible in as short amount a time as possible.)
  • Turn meat to the other side and cook for another 30 seconds.
  • Remove to a clean plate.
  • Repeat with other half of meat, allowing pan to get very hot again first.
  • After turning it, add the first plateful of meat, the rest of the marinade, and the snow peas.
  • Stir over high heat for 30 seconds, then turn off heat.
  • Check seasonings and add salt only if it needs it. Mixture will thicken as it sits.
  • Serve immediately over rice.
  • Sprinkle crushed red pepper over the top to give it some spice.
