We really liked this. Maybe a little more of the reduction would have put this over the top. I'm sure I'll be making this a lot! Thanks! Made for My 3 Chefs Fall 2008

Ingredients Nutrition

  2. Sprinkle with salt and pepper In a small bowl, mix cinnamon, oregano, ginger and allspice.
  3. Sprinkle this mixture over steak strips.
  4. In a large deep frying pan or wok, melt butter with oil over medium high heat and add steak and brown on all sides, a third at a time so as not to crowd the meat.
  5. Remove the strips when they are well browned.
  6. When all the meat is browned, reduce the heat to medium and add the slivered onion.
