Ingredients

    For the sauce:

    1/4 cup soy sauce (nutrition facts are for low-sodium soy sauce)
    1 1/4 cups water
    1 Tbs. grated ginger
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    1 tsp sesame oil
    1 Tbs dark brown sugar, packed
    4 Tbs apple cider vinegar
    2 Tbs dry sherry or sake (I've also used rice vinegar)
    3 Tbs cornstarch

    For the veggies and beef:
    Canola Oil, 1 Tbs
    Beef, top sirloin, 16 oz, sliced into strips
    Onions, raw, 1 cup, chopped
    Broccoli, fresh, 3 cup, chopped
    Cabbage, fresh, 3 cup, chopped
    Peppers, sweet, red, raw, sliced, 2 cup
    Carrots, raw, 1 cup, chopped
    Mushrooms, fresh, 3 cup, sliceed
    Zucchini, 2 cup, sliced
    Scallions, raw, 1 cup, chopped


Directions

1. Whisk together all sauce ingredients and set aside. (Add the cornstarch last after you have mixed all the other ingredients.)

2. Heat up the canola oil in a wok or large skillet. Add the beef strips and brown on all sides. Pull the beef out and set aside.

3. Add the onions to the oil still in the wok and sautee until they start to soften.

4. Add broccoli, cabbage, peppers and carrots and stir-fry for 3 or 4 minutes, until they start to soften.

5. Return the browned steak to the wok. Add mushrooms, zucchini, and scallions, and stir-fry another 4 or 5 minutes, until the zucchini begins to get soft.

6. Mix the sauce again so that it looks cloudy (which means the cornstarch is mixed back in), and pour all of it over the veggies and meat in the wok. Stir well, keeping the heat high. In a few minutes, the sauce will thicken and the veggies will turn shiny.

Makes 6 servings of about 2 cups. Serve over 1/2 cup brown rice or noodles. Enjoy!
