Beef with Ginger

Prep time 25 mins
Cook time 10 mins
Yield 4 servings
Fresh grated ginger adds delicious flavor to this Asian-inspired beef entree.  Chilling the beef in the freezer for 5 minutes makes it easier to cut into very thin slices.


  • 1 pound sirloin steak, chilled
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons lite soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup fat-free reduced-sodium beef broth
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 6 green onions, cut diagonally into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)
  • 4 cups hot cooked long-grain rice
