  • 1 Teaspoon salt
  • 1 Teaspoon black pepper fresh cracked from a pepper mill
  • ½ Teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 Pound sirloin steak angus
  • ½ Pound shrimp
  • 1 potato russet, peeled and diced
  • 2 Teaspoon cornstarch
  • 6 oz sugar snap peas
  • 2 red bell peppers roughly chopped
  • 1 yellow onion sliced
  • 5 green onions garnish


  • ¼ Cup soy sauce
  • 2 Tablespoon mirin
  • 2 Tablespoon chili sauce red
  • ¼ Cup unsalted butter softened
  • 3 Cloves garlic minced
  • 1 Teaspoon ginger paste
  • 1 shallot minced
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha
  • 1 Teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 Teaspoon rice vinegar
  • 1 Pinch pepper


  • Heat a wok over high heat.
  • Combine all ingredients for the sauce in a small mixing bowl. Lightly stir. The butter will melt into the sauce as it cooks so it is ok for it to be slightly lumpy.
  • Add salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes to a small bowl or ramekin and stir to combine. Separate into 2 bowls. One for the steak, one for the shrimp.
  • Add shrimp to a bowl and toss with seasoning.
  • Season steak on both sides with the seasoning, then cut into 1” pieces. Add to a separate bowl and combine with potatoes. Toss steak and potatoes with cornstarch.
  • Add 1 tbsp canola oil to the wok. Add the steak and potatoes and stir fry for 3 minutes. Remove the steak and set aside.
  • Next, add the sugar snap peas, bell peppers, and onions to the wok. Stir fry for 2 minutes.
  • Add the sauce to the wok and lower the heat to medium setting. Stir often as it thickens, about 5 minutes.
  • Make a hole in the center of the wok and add the shrimp. Let cook in the simmering sauce for 1 minute, then flip shrimp over and cook for 30 more seconds. Turn off the heat. Add the steak back to the wok and stir to combine. Cover and let set for 5 minutes before serving.
  • Garnish with green onions.
