You can substitute presliced steak for the sirloin. Look for it in the meat department of your grocery store. Serve the stir-fry over hot cooked rice, if desired.
1 1/2 bunches green onions
1 pound top round steak*
3 tablespoons cornstarch, divided
3 tablespoons lite soy sauce
1 medium-size red bell pepper, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon sesame oil (optional)
1 cup beef broth
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1/4 to 1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
How to Make It
Thoroughly wash green onions. Remove root ends and tips of onions; cut into 2-inch pieces. Place pieces in a large bowl.
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.
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.
*1 lb. skinned and boned chicken breasts may be substituted.
This was a great meal for dinner tonight. I used stir-fry meat that come already sliced to cut down on my prep time. My husband rated it an 8.5 out of ten, which is great for him. Next time I think we will add some mushrooms to the mix as well.
