Steak Stir Fry with Mizuna

I have been receiving my CSA share for the last couple of weeks. The best part about receiving the fresh vegetables from the farm is the introduction to new vegetables. I received mizuna in my share. The sign recommended a stir fry so I thought it was a great suggestion. Besides the chopping, a stir fry tends to be a quick supper. The kids loved it but anytime we have a dish with steak then it is a winner.
Steak Stir Fry with Mizuna
8 oz. sirloin steak tips, sliced thin
salt and pepper, to taste
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp ginger, minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup green bell pepper, chopped small
2 cups mizuna leaves
1 cup snow pea pods
1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
1 tsp toasted sesame seeds

  1. Season the steak with salt and pepper.
  2. In a large skillet, heat 1 Tbsp of vegetable oil over medium high heat. 
  3. Cook for about 5 minutes or until desired doneness. Set aside on a plate.
  4. Add the ginger, garlic, and the green pepper. Saute for 30 seconds.
  5. Add the mizuna leaves and snow pea pods. Cook for 1 minute.
  6. Stir in the teriyaki sauce. 
  7. Add the steak to the vegetables and toss.
  8. Serve with noodles or rice.
