2 tbs. canola oil (divided)
1.5 lbs. thinly sliced rib steak
2 tbs. cornstarch
4 cups of frozen mixed vegetables
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper
2 tbs. ginger paste
1/3 cup orange juice
1 tbs. water
1/4 cup soy sauce
3 tbs. brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. sesame oil
1 tbs. cornstarch
Season steak with salt & pepper. Toss with cornstarch and set aside while you prepare the vegetables.
Place 1 tablespoon of oil in a pan. Cook the beef in 2 small batches over medium high until browned, about 2-3 minutes (beef does not need to be cooked through). Remove from pan and set aside.
Add vegetables to the pan and cook until crisp. Remove from pan and set aside with the beef.
Combine sauce ingredients except for the corn starch in a bowl and stir well.
Turn the heat up to medium-high and add the sauce. Bring to a simmer. Combine cornstarch with 3 tablespoons water (or broth) and add it the sauce a little bit at a time while whisking to reach desired consistency. Let simmer 2 minutes. Add vegetables, beef (and any juices) to the pan and cook until heated through.
Garnish with green onions and enjoy!
