Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce, divided
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound beef top sirloin steak, cut into thin strips
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium beef broth
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh gingerroot
  • 3 teaspoons canola oil, divided
  • 1 cup julienned sweet red pepper
  • 1 cup julienned green pepper
  • 2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 2 medium tomatoes, cut into wedges

Directions

  • In a shallow bowl, combine 3 tablespoons soy sauce and pepper; add beef. Turn to coat; cover and refrigerate 30-60 minutes. In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch, broth and remaining soy sauce until smooth; set aside.
  • Drain beef, discarding marinade. In a large nonstick skillet or wok, stir-fry the garlic and ginger in 2 teaspoons oil for 1 minute. Add the beef; stir-fry 4-6 minutes or until no longer pink. Remove beef and keep warm.
  • Stir-fry the peppers in remaining oil for 1 minute. Add mushrooms; stir-fry 2 minutes longer or until peppers are crisp-tender. Stir broth mixture and add to vegetable mixture. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Return beef to pan; add tomatoes and onions. Cook for 2 minutes or until heated through. Serve over rice if desired.
