  1. In a bowl, combine cornstarch, sugar, soy sauce and wine, apple juice or water until smooth. Add beef and toss to coat; set aside. In a large skillet, stir-fry broccoli, carrots, pea pods and onion in 1 tablespoon oil for 1 minute. Stir in water chestnuts. Cover and simmer for 4 minutes; remove and keep warm. In the same skillet, stir-fry beef in remaining oil until meat reaches desired doneness. Return vegetables to pan; toss. Serve over rice.

HINT: How to thin slice meat for this kind of dish. Put it in the freezer for a few hours (check often) and when it's partially "stiff", it's time to slice. Much easier than with fresh meat. ...

This isn't heavily seasoned but I liked that - I want to taste the beef tenderloin I used and I wanted to actually taste all those wonderful fresh vegetables. Didn't use the sugar at all, and re...

I made this last night with red wine as the liquid for the sauce and the addition of tri-color bell peppers...wonderful, fast, easy, adaptable recipe! The kids and husband all loved it. I'll b...

This is a great recipe. I also doubled the sauce. Next time might even triple it so that there is more to drizzle over rice or noodles. I also used garlic with the veggies. Instead of pork I use...
