Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 15 min.


4 servings

Apple lends a little sweetness to this mildly seasoned stir-fry. Tender strips of lamb contrast nicely with the crunchy snow peas and water chestnuts.


  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 3/4 pound boneless lamb, cut into 1/8-inch strips
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil, divided

  • 1 can (8 ounces) sliced water chestnuts, drained
