Beef with Ginger

There is no picture for this meal because I totally forgot!!! About halfway through the meal Monica says to me, "Hey... didn't you need to take a picture?" Oops. It smelled so good that I just dove right in! It's probably for the best. My pictures are only going to get worse. Baumholder is usually dreary, but fall/winter is worse than ever. I have ZERO natural light and I'm not that great of a photographer anyway!

This meal is quick and easy and incredibly delicious! Recipe, please....

Beef with Ginger

1 lb sirloin steak
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 TBSP grated fresh ginger
2 tsp vegetable oil
1/2 tsp minced garlic
2 tsp soy sauce
1/2 cup beef broth
2 tsp cornstarch
6 green onions, cut diagonally into 1" pieces
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper (optional)

Add beef; cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in soy sauce. Mix beef broth with cornstarch. Drizzle over beef mixture. Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened.
