This recipe is better than any take out you could ever order- make it fresh and with more flavor right in your own kitchen!
- 1 ½ pounds beef, cut into strips (we used flank steak)
- For Marinade:
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon corn starch
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- Juice from ½ fresh lime
- For Sauce:
- 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoons ground ginger
- 1 tablespoons minced garlic
- ½ cup soy sauce
- ½ cup water
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 1 ½ tablespoons cold water + 1 tablespoons corn starch
- Combine marinade ingredients in a small bowl and whisk until combined. Pour marinade into a zip-lock bag, add beef strips, seal and chill for at least 1 hour (or overnight).
- Combine sauce ingredients in a skillet over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Meanwhile, whisk corn starch and water in a small bowl until corn starch dissolves.
- Once sugar dissolves, bring sauce to a boil, reduce to medium-low heat and stir in corn starch-water mixture. Allow sauce to thicken slightly, then remove from heat.
- Cook beef strips in a large skillet over medium-high heat for about 5-7 minutes. Reduce to medium heat and add up to ½ cup of sauce until beef is fully coated. Stir and continue to cook for a few more minutes.
- Serve over rice or noodles with any additional toppings you prefer.
