Mongolian Style

Last night I threw this together before heading to the gym, it was such a yummy meal to reward myself with afterward a good workout and it was so easy too! Measurements are guessy, but close. :)
2 sirloin steaks, sliced thin (or flank steak etc)
1/4 C cornstarch
3 Tbs sesame oil
1/2 tsp minced ginger (or 3 pieces candied ginger)
2-3 cloves minced garlic
1/2 C soy sauce
1/2 C brown sugar
2 Tbs rice vinegar
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes (I also added chiles del arbol for some extra heat)
1/2 yellow or red onion, sliced
1-2 C green beans
For the sauce I heated about 1/2 Tbs sesame oil in a sauce pan then added garlic and ginger. After sauteeing for a minute add soy sauce and vinegar, dilute with a Tbs or 2 of water. Add brown sugar and red pepper, bring to a boil for a few minutes then remove from heat. Heat about 1 Tbs sesame oil in a wok or skillet and saute green beans and onion, remove to a plate. Toss meat with cornstarch and let sit a few minutes. Add 2-3 Tbs additional oil to the skillet, add meat and season with salt and pepper. After a couple minutes return veggies and pour sauce over everything. Let it come to a simmer, reduce heat to low and cover until ready to serve. Serve over white rice, who needs chinese take out? :)

I just clicked to your blog from Just Cook Already. I saw you're married to Brad and I had to comment! I know him from way back when. I was good friends with his mission friend Hudd. I just had to say hi because Brad is SUCH a nice guy!
