Steps

Hide Images
  • 1
    Trim excess fat from beef. Cut beef with grain into 2-inch strips; cut strips across grain into 1/8-inch slices. (Beef is easier to cut if partially frozen, about 1 hour.)
  • 2
    Mix broth, cornstarch, fish sauce, vinegar and brown sugar.
  • 3
    Heat wok or 10-inch skillet over high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil; rotate wok to coat side. Add beef, gingerroot and garlic; stir-fry about 3 minutes or until beef is brown. Remove beef from wok with slotted spoon.
  • 4
    Add 1 tablespoon oil to wok; rotate wok to coat side. Add carrots and onions; stir-fry about 5 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Stir in beef, water chestnuts and lemon peel; heat to boiling. Stir in broth mixture. Cook and stir about 1 minute or until heated through.
  • 5
    Serve beef mixture over rice.

  • Two-thirds cup of a favorite stir-fry sauce can be used in place of the beef broth, cornstarch, fish sauce and brown sugar.
  • Save chopping time by buying already-cut veggies at a pay-by-the-pound salad bar.
