Directions

1. Trim fat from beef. Cut beef with grain into 2-inch strips; cut strips across grain into 1/4-inch slices.
2. Heat 10-inch skillet or wok over high heat 1 to 2 minutes. Add oil; rotate skillet to coat with oil. Add beef and garlic; stir-fry about 3 minutes or until beef is brown. Sprinkle salt and pepper over beef; stir in broth. Heat to boiling.
3. Mix cornstarch, water and soy sauce; stir into beef mixture. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Continue boiling 1 minute, stirring constantly (sauce will be thin).
4. Stir in gingerroot and pea pods. Cook uncovered about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pea pods are crisp-tender. Serve over rice.
