Using store-bought beef strips and frozen vegetables makes this an easy dish, of coarse you may use fresh vegetables if desired, carrot slices or broccoli works well with this, add in some mushrooms and/or water chestnuts also ;-) Use only low sodium soy sauce and if you are using beef broth use only low sodium. The dried chili flakes are only optional add in for heat. Serve this with cooked rice.
- 2 teaspoons beef bouillon granules
- 2 cups boiled water, slighty cooled (or use 2 cups low sodium beef broth)
- 4 tablespoons cornstarch
- 2⁄3 cup low sodium soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon white sugar

This is great. I'm currently a bit low on veggie choices so I used frozen snow peas, sliced carrots and some red pepper along with a piece of sirloin that I cut into strips. I cut back on the soy sauce by half. It was served with brown rice and hit the spot very nicely indeed. Made for Newest Zaar Tag
