Beef Stir Fry

Beef Stir Fry

From: Homecooking In Montana

1 lb. tri-tip, thinly sliced
2 tsp. fresh ginger, minced
2 tsp. cornstarch
1 Tbs. rice vinegar
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
salt & pepper to taste
1/4-1/3 cup olive oil fro stir frying
1 carrot, julienned
2 green onions, sliced
1/4 bell pepper, julienned (I used a lot more than this to make the meal go further and because we like a lot of veggies in our stir fry)
1 cup mushrooms, sliced
3-4 cloves garlic, sliced
sesame seeds, optional
Stir fry sauce of your liking

Mix together ginger, cornstarch, rice vinegar, 2-3 cloves garlic, and salt and pepper. Add beef and let marinate for 20 or so minutes.

In a skillet, stir fry the mushrooms with a bit of salt and pepper in a tsp. of oil until most of the water is evaporated and the mushrooms are mostly dry. Set aside.

Clean skillet and add oil over medium-high heat. Add beef in batches, frying until golden brown and done. Set aside. Drain all of the oil except for 1 tsp. Stir fry all of the julienned veggies for a minute or so. You want the veggies to still have some bite to them. Return the meat and mushrooms to the pan. Stir fry for another minutes. Add stir fry sauce and cook until heated through. Serve over rice. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
