Snap Peas with Beef & Onions

Stupidly fast and simple, but very nice with those delish snap peas! Put some rice on to cook just before you start this to give it a bed to rest on once it is ready. (Or start it 20 minutes before you start this if it is brown rice.)

2 servings
30 minute
s prep time

Snap Peas with Beef and Onions
4 cups snap peas
2 onions, greens and bulbs
1 tablespoon mild vegetable oil
250 grams (1/2 pound) ground beef
3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
1/4 cup water

Wash and trim the snap peas. Cut the greens off the onions, and chop the greens. Set them aside. Peel and chop the onions, and set them aside.

Heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the onion and ground beef and cook until browned, stirring constantly and breaking up the ground beef into fairly small pieces. Add the hoisin sauce and water. Add the peas and continue cooking and stirring, until the water is absorbed and the peas are bright green and crisp. Add the onion greens and stir them in until they are well wilted. That's it; there you go.

Last year at this time I made Vegetable Fried Rice. Hey! Make extra rice and have that tomorrow. That's what I did!
