Quick-as-a-wink wok cooking can even be done in a skillet. Our flavor-packed recipe for beefy stir fry makes short work of a family-pleasing Asian-style weeknight meal.6 servings

1 tablespoon sesame oil
1-1/2 pounds beef flank steak, cut into thin strips
1/2 pound fresh snow peas
1 large red bell pepper, cut into 1/4-inch strips
2 tablespoons minced garlic
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
3 tablespoons light soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds (see Tip)

1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add steak strips; sauté 2 to 3 minutes, or until browned. Remove steak; set aside.

2. Add snow peas, bell pepper, garlic, and ginger to skillet; sauté 4 to 5 minutes, or until vegetables are tender.

3. Add soy sauce, black pepper, and sesame seeds to skillet; return steak to skillet. Simmer 2 to 3 minutes, stirring until completely mixed and heated through.

Toast sesame seeds by placing them in a small nonstick skillet over low heat for 3 to 4 minutes, or until golden, turning frequently. Just watch them carefully. It's as easy as 1-2-3!
