1 1/2 bunches green onions

3 tablespoons cornstarch, divided
3 tablespoons lite soy sauce

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon sesame oil (optional)

2. Cut steak across the grain into thin slices, and add to green onions in bowl. Sprinkle with 2 Tbsp. cornstarch and soy sauce, tossing to coat.

3. Sauté beef mixture and red bell pepper, in 2 batches, in hot vegetable oil and, if desired, sesame oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat 3 minutes or until beef is done and bell pepper is crisp-tender. Whisk together beef broth, vinegar, red pepper flakes, and remaining 1 Tbsp. cornstarch. Add to beef mixture in skillet, and bring to a boil. Cook 1 minute or until thickened. Top with peanuts, if desired.
