Sugar Snap and Beef Stir Fry

Sugar Snap and Beef Stir FryI found this recipe in my newest Cooking Light magazine. I adapted it just a bit by adding some chili sauce, garlic, and sesame oil to the marinade as well as some extra veggies to the stir fry. The beef turned out extremely tender while the vegetables were slightly crisp. It was a light, healthy, and really delicious meal that my entire family loved. I liked how quick and simple the recipe was to make and that it had very little clean-up.
