  • 1 lb of sirloin steak thinly sliced crosswise

  • 1/4 cup of cornstarch

  • 3 teaspoons of canola oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon grated ginger about 1/2 inch piece

  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic about 2 -3 large cloves

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • 3 large green onions sliced

  • 10 oz package of broccoli slaw

  • 1 cup


    sliced thinly
  • 1 red pepper sliced thinly
  • 1 green pepper sliced thinly


  • Dry meat with a paper towel and slice into thin strips across the grain. Put the meat in a medium-sized bowl and coat the beef with the cornstarch. Set aside.
  • Start cooking the rice while you prepare the rest of the meal.

  • Heat half of the oil in a large wok or pan at medium-high heat. Add the garlic, ginger, soy sauce, water, brown sugar and pepper flakes. Cook the sauce for about 2 minutes and transfer it to a bowl. Don't worry if the sauce doesn't look thick enough at this point. The corn starch in the beef will thicken it up later.

  • Place the meat in the same pan and cook until browned on both sides. Put the meat back into the bowl.

  • Add the remaining oil to the pan and cook veggies until al-dente. Add meat and sauce back to the vegetables. Cook until sauce is at your desired thickness.

  • Add the green onions at the last minute so the green parts will stay green and the white parts crunchy.
  • Serve immediately over rice


Beef is easier to slice thinly if very cold. Place it in the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes before slicing.
