Original Recipe Yield 4 servings

Ingredients




2 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
2 large bell peppers, sliced into thin strips
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1 1/2 pounds flank steak, cut into thin strips


Directions



Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook onion, bell peppers, and garlic in oil until tender-crisp, stirring frequently. Set aside.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Pour soy sauce, honey, and red wine vinegar in pan, then add beef. Cook beef, stirring frequently, until done, about 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in cooked vegetables, and cook another 10 to 15 minutes.


FOOTNOTE




If you prefer a thicker sauce, stir in a little flour or corn starch before removing from heat.


Viewer's Note:
I only gave this recipe three stars because while it's very easy to make it does need some tweaking. One of the reasons the steak comes out tough is because in essence the steak is being boiled in the sauce and not really stir-fried. To ensure that your steak comes out perfect every time stir-fry the veggies, remove from the pan. Then add the beef, stir-frying in a small amount of oil till it's done to your liking. Remove and keep warm with the veggies. THEN add the sauce ingredients and cook about 3 minutes, add corn starch to thicken. Add the veggies and steak to the sauce, tossing to coat and heat through -- about 1-2 minutes. The steak will be perfectly cooked and your veggies will stay crisp-tender.
