Notes

  • Freezing the beef in the freezer for a half hour prior to slicing makes it easier to cut thin slices
  • Because the cooking time is so short its best if you prepare all the cooking ingredients before stir frying the beef
  • Omit the corn flour slurry and use your favorite sugar substitute for a low carb option
