This is absolutely delicious! I used fresh ginger and garlic instead of bottled, and I used a flat iron steak that I sliced thinly against the grain. The meat was so tender, and the stir fry sauce is wonderfully flavorful, despite the fact that I cut back on the red pepper. (I'm not a big fan of overly spicy food.) It was so easy and quick to fix, I will definitely make this dish again. One serving (1/4 of the prepared dish) is 6 Points Plus if you're following Weight Watchers. I served this over 1/2 cup of baked brown rice, which added another 3 Points.
Sesame Beef Stir-Fry
If presliced beef is not available, ask your butcher to thinly slice flank steak or boneless sirloin steak.
