  • 3 tablespoons cold water

  • 1 ½ tablespoons corn starch

  • sesame seeds, rice for serving (optional)

  • While sauce is cooking, whisk together corn starch and water in a small bowl until corn starch is dissolved.

  • Bring sauce to a boil, then reduce heat to medium low and stir in corn starch-water mixture. Allow sauce to thicken slightly, then remove from heat.

  • In a large pan or skillet, cook beef strips over medium high heat until cooked through (5-8 mins) turning strips over throughout to ensure even cooking, reduce heat to medium.

  • Add 1/2-1 cup of sauce (depending on how "saucy" you want your beef). Stir and cook 1-2 minutes longer.

  • Serve over rice with green onions and sesame seeds if desired. Enjoy!
