    Spray nonstick wok or 12-inch skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Add beef; stir-fry 2 minutes. Stir in bell peppers and onions and reserved marinade; reduce heat to medium.

    Cover and cook 3 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until sauce is thickened. Serve over rice.

Expert Tips

The Betty Crocker Kitchens recommends marinating only in glass or plastic. Metal bowls may react with acidic foods, which can cause an off-flavor and minerals to transfer from the bowl to the food.

If you use a lot of garlic, consider purchasing finely chopped garlic in jars. This is usually found in the produce section and needs refrigeration.
