DIRECTIONS

  • In a bowl whisk together marinade ingredients (soy sauce - pepper).
  • Slice steak with the grain into 2-inch strips and then across the grain into 1/2 inch pieces (the directions say 1/8 inch pieces but mine were closer to 1/2 inch to 1 inch) and then add them to marinade, toss, and set aside.
  • Heat one tablespoon oil in wok over medium high heat until hot. Add beans and stir for 1 minute. Add water and reduce heat to medium. Cover and cook for 5-10 minutes. Transfer beans to bowl.
  • Add remaining oil (see note in description) to wok and increase heat to high. Add ginger and stir until oil is hot and ginger sizzles (1 minute).
  • Add onion and stir for one minute.
  • Add beef mixture to wok and stir until beef is done (2-5 minutes).
  • Return beans and liquid to wok and stir until mixed and heated through. Discard ginger.
