Beef with Ginger over Rice

To make slicing the beef thin easier, place the steak in the freezer for 5 minutes before you begin.  Recipe serves 4.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 pound sirloin steak
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fresh grated ginger
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup fat-free, reduced sodium beef broth
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 6 green onions, cut diagonally into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)
  • 4 cups cooked rice

What you’ll do:

  • Cut the steak diagonally across the grain into very thin slices.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Heat the oil over medium-high heat.  Add the ginger and saute, stirring, for 2 minutes.
  • Add in the garlic and saute for 30 more seconds.
  • Add the beef, cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly.  Stir in the soy sauce.
  • In a small bowl, combine the beef broth and the cornstarch.  Stir until lumps are gone.  Drizzle over the beef mixture.  Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minutes or until thickened.
  • Add in the green onions, and if desired, the red pepper flakes, and cook 1 minute.
  • Serve over hot rice.
