Ingredients

1/2 cup reduced-sodium teriyaki sauce
2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
1 boneless beef top sirloin steak (about 1 pound), cut into short thin strips
2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons peanut oil or vegetable oil, divided
1 medium onion, cut into 1/2-inch wedges

Add snow peas; stir-fry 3 minutes for fresh snow peas or 1 minute for frozen. Stir marinade mixture until smooth and add to wok. Stir-fry 30 seconds or until sauce boils and thickens.
  5. Return beef, any accumulated juices and tomatoes to wok; cook until heated through. Serve over rice. Sprinkle with black pepper.
