1 tbsp (15 mL) vegetable oil
11/4 lb (625 g) boneless Ontario Beef Grilling Steak, cut in thin strips
2 tsp (10 mL) grated fresh gingerroot
1 clove garlic, minced
1 each Ontario Greenhouse Sweet Red Pepper and Orange Pepper, cut in thin strips
2 Ontario Onions, sliced in thin strips
2 cups (500 mL) sliced Ontario Mushrooms
11/3 cups (325 mL) beef broth
3 tbsp (45 mL) sodium-reduced soy sauce
3 tbsp (45 mL) cornstarch
1/4 cup (50 mL) water


In wok or large deep skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add beef, ginger and garlic; stir-fry for 3 minutes or until beef is browned.

Add red and orange peppers, onions and mushrooms; stir-fry until tender-crisp about 3 minutes. Add broth and soy sauce; bring to a simmer. Cover and steam for 1 minute.

In small bowl, combine cornstarch and water; stir into meat and vegetable mixture. Cook stirring, for 1 minute or until sauce is thickened. Serve over cooked rice or noodles.
