Ingredients

  • 1 sweet red pepper
  • 1 sweet green pepper
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced gingerroot
  • 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 3 cups diagonally halved trimmed green beans
  • 1/2 cup beef stock
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced

Method

Seed, core and cut red pepper into thin strips; set aside.

In wok or large skillet, stir-fry beef over high heat until no longer pink, about 3 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer beef to plate.

Drain fat from wok; add oil. Stir-fry garlic, ginger, salt and pepper over medium heat until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add green beans, red pepper and 2 tbsp (25 mL) water; cover and steam until beans and pepper are tender-crisp, 3 minutes.

Return beef and any juices to wok. Whisk together beef stock, hoisin sauce, soy sauce and cornstarch; stir into wok. Bring to boil; boil, stirring, until sauce is thickened and glossy, about 1 minute. Sprinkle with green onions.
