Recipe Book Worm's Note:
Based on Miraklegirl's "Crispy Ginger Beef" (Crispy Ginger Beef). I modified her recipe based on the ingredients I had on hand. The sauce turned out really yummy, so I'm posting my version here for safe-keeping. (My husband and I aren't huge stir-fry fans, so now that I've found a recipe we both enjoy I'd better not lose it...) Of course, the meat and veggies can be substituted for whatever you have handy (or make it meatless if you want).
