  • 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 1/8 teaspoon coarsely-ground black pepper (or more/less to taste)


  • 1 lb sirloin steak (cut diagonally across the grain into thin strips)
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 red bell pepper (thinly sliced)
  • 1/2 yellow bell pepper (thinly sliced)
  • 1/2 green bell pepper (thinly sliced)
  • 2 green onions (sliced and divided)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh ginger (minced)
  • 2 garlic cloves (minced)



  • In a small bowl, whisk together all the marinade ingredients. Pork over sliced sirloin in a large ziplock bag. Seal the bag and shake gently to coat all the meat. Refrigerate for at least 15 minutes.


  • Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large wok or skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté the peppers and the white part of the green onions, ginger, and garlic for about 3 minutes. Remove to a plate.
  • Add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil to the wok and add half of the marinated steak, reserving the marinade. Stir fry 2 to 3 minutes until browned; transfer to the plate. Repeat with the remaining steak; and again transfer to the plate.
  • Pour the reserved marinade into the wok. Cook and stir until thickened, about 1 minute. Add the previously cooked ingredients and stir. Cook a couple of minutes until heated through. Add the green onion tops and give it one more stir.
  • Serve immediately over rice or quinoa.
