Directions

  1. Toss beef with salt, pepper and 1/4 cup honey garlic sauce; set aside. Combine the remaining sauce with water, lime juice and ginger. Whisk in cornstarch. Reserve.

  2. Heat oil in a wok or deep skillet set over high heat. Add vegetables. Stir-fry for 3 to 5 min. or until tender. Transfer to a clean plate.

  3. Pour meat mixture into wok and stir-fry for 2 to 3 min. or until slightly brown. Return vegetables to the pan and toss. Make a well in the centre of the skillet and pour in sauce mixture; bring to a boil. Mix meat and vegetables until well-coated in sauce. Stir in green onions and serve over hot rice.

Tip

Picking up a bag of prepared veggies is a real time-saver. You'll skip all the washing and chopping while still using fresh vegetables.
