Author: Tiffany
Recipe type: Main Dish
Cuisine: Asian-Inspired
Serves: 3-4
Ingredients
  • 1-2 pounds beef, cut into strips (suggestion: flank steak or stir fry beef strips)
for the marinade
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce (Tamari Sauce for Gluten Free)
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
for the sauce
  • 4 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1½ teaspoons ground ginger
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 cup soy sauce (Tamari Sauce for Gluten Free)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1⅔ cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cold water + 1½ tablespoons corn starch
  • Optional: sliced green onions, sesame seeds, rice
Instructions
  1. Combine all marinade ingredients in a smal bowl and whisk until combined. Pour into a zip-lock back with beef strips, seal and chill 1 hour or overnight.
  2. Drain marinade from zip-lock and set beef aside.
  3. In a medium sauce pan combine sauce ingredients. Stir and heat over medium high heat until brown sugar has dissolved. While sauce is cooking, whisk together corn starch and water in a small bowl until corn starch is dissolved. Bring sauce to a boil, then reduce heat to medium low and stir in corn starch-water mixture. Allow sauce to thicken slightly, then remove from heat. In a large pan or skillet, cook beef strips over medium high heat until cooked through (5-8 mins) turning strips over throughout to ensure even cooking, reduce heat to medium. add ½-1 cup of sauce (depending on how “saucy” you want your beef). Stir and cook 1-2 minutes longer. Serve over rice with green onions and sesame seeds if desired.
Notes
This recipe makes a large batch of the sauce, more than you will need for your beef! You may half the recipe if you’d like, or we like to use the extra over rice!*Recipe adapted from Rainy Day Gal and Favorite Family Recipes
