  • In a bowl , whisk together all marinade ingredients. Place marinade in a small sealable plastic bag, adding beef slices. Seal and massage to coat; marinate for 15 minutes.
  • In the meantime, in a small bowl mix all the sauce ingredients together, whisking to completely combine; set aside. (I place the ingredients in a sealable container and shake.).
  • Drain marinade from beef. Coat the beef slices with cornstarch. (I place each coated slice on a piece of wax paper lightly dusted with corn starch so as not to stick.).
  • Heat oil over medium-high heat until very hot. Shake off any excess cornstarch from the beef slices and fry in batches until golden brown. Drain on paper towels; set aside. (Note: The beef may be fried in a wok, after which drain and wipe clean with paper toweling.).
  • Heat wok over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoons oil and heat to almost smoking. Add minced garlic and ginger and stir-fry for 10 seconds. Add bell peppers and onion; stir fry for 2 minutes. (Note: to keep the vegetables crisper, set vegetables aside and cook the sauce separate.).
  • Pour sauce mixture into the wok over the vegetables and heat until boiling and sauce thickens. Remove from heat then add beef to vegetables and coat with the sauce.
  • Sprinkle on top toasted sesame seeds.
