Recipe Notes


Beef can be marinated for a few hours. If marinating, whisk all the sauce ingredients except the cornstarch. Put the beef strips in a freezer bag and pour the marinade over it. Refrigerate for up to 24 hours. When ready to cook, remove beef from marinade, add liquid to a bowl and whisk in cornstarch.
