smooth natural peanut butter
reduced-sodium soy sauce
canola oil, divided
sirloin steak, trimmed and thinly sliced
1 small head
Savoy cabbage, thinly sliced
unsalted roasted peanuts, chopped, optional
- Whisk peanut butter, orange juice, soy sauce, vinegar and sugar in a medium bowl until smooth.
- Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 30 seconds. Add steak and cook, stirring, until browned and barely pink in the middle, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
- Reduce heat to medium. Swirl in the remaining 2 teaspoons oil. Add cabbage and 2 tablespoons water; cook, stirring, until beginning to wilt, 3 to 5 minutes. Add carrots (and more water if necessary to prevent sticking or burning) and cook, stirring, until just tender, about 3 minutes more. Return the steak and any accumulated juices to the pan, then pour in the peanut sauce and toss to combine. Serve sprinkled with peanuts (if using).
Tip: For thinly sliced beef, freeze for 30 minutes to make it easier to cut into very thin slices.
