2 tsp toasted sesame oil
1 tsp cornstarch
0.75 lb beef top sirloin, cut into strips
1 tbs pbrown sugar
1 tsp cornstarch

1 red bell pepper, seeded and julienned
2 green onions, thinly sliced, white and green parts separated
2 garlic cloves, chopped

In a bowl, whisk together the low-salt beef broth, hoisin sauce, low-salt soy sauce, toasted sesame oil and the cornstarch. Set aside.

In another bowl, combine beef with brown sugar and cornstarch. Season with pepper.

In a large non-stick skillet over high heat, cook meat in 2 tablespoons of oil for 2 minutes on each side or until nicely browned. Set aside on a plate.

In the same skillet over medium heat, cook bell pepper, white parts of green onions, garlic and ginger in the remaining oil for 2 minutes while stirring. Add snow peas and sauce. Continue to cook until sauce thickens slightly. Return meat to skillet and toss to coat in sauce.
