Asian Inspired Steak (or stir fry) Marinade

This was delicious! I found it on pinterest, but it was evidently in Ree's book, Black Heels to Tractor Wheels, which *gassp* I actually haven't read. I know, right? I need to read it. The original recipe is for steaks. I wanted to do an Asian dinner, so I tossed it with some snow peas and made some lo mein. It turned out great! You can use this  marinade to just do steaks if you want, but I had already bought some steak that was in strips already, so we went with stir fry. I'll try to remember what I did for the lo mein, because it was so good too! 

Asian Inspired Steak (or stir fry) Marinade
adapted from Savory Sweet Life

1/2 cup Low-Sodium Soy Sauce
1/2 cup Sherry
1/4 cup Honey
2 Tablespoons Sesame Oil
2 Tablespoons Minced Ginger (or 1/2 teaspoon ground)
2 Tablespoons (3-5 cloves) Minced Garlic
2 teaspoons Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (less if you don't love spicy)
2 Flat Iron Steaks or whatever thin cut you like

In a large bowl, whisk together soy sauce, sherry, honey, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, and red pepper flakes. Add steaks to marinade, cover, and chill in the refrigerator for 3-6 hours. 

If you want to grill the steaks, cook on medium high, flipping once until your desired doneness.  Allow steaks to rest for 5 minutes before slicing and serving. 

If you're going to add in the snow peas, wash the snow peas and cut the ends off. Heat a skillet on high with some olive oil. Add peas and cook quickly, remove to a clean plate and set aside. To cook beef, keep skillet on high, add in a bit of oil, and add meat in a single layer. Cook for a minute or two, flip once and then once beef is cooked, toss beef and snow peas together. 

I cooked my beef in the skillet (it was already sliced prior to cooking and marinating), and then added in the snow peas.
