Makes 4 servings
• 1 pound beef loin or sirloin, cut into thin strips
• 1 cup orange juice
• 1/4 cup soy sauce
• 1½ teaspoons McCormick Ground Ginger
• 1 teaspoon McCormick Garlic Powder
• 1/4 teaspoon McCormick Ground Red Pepper (optional)
• 4 teaspoons McCormick® Sesame Seed, toasted*, divided
• 6 cups sliced vegetables (broccoli, sugar snap peas, onion, or red bell pepper)
• 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
• 1 tablespoon cornstarch
• 1 tablespoon sugar
Place meat in self-closing plastic bag. Combine orange juice, soy sauce, ginger, garlic powder and red pepper. Reserve half of the marinade; pour remaining marinade over steak. Marinate in refrigerator 15 minutes.
Sauté beef and 3 teaspoons toasted sesame seed in hot oil in a large skillet over high heat about 3 minutes or until beef is browned.
Remove beef from skillet and keep warm. Add vegetables and cook and stir until crisp tender, about 3-5 minutes.
Combine reserved marinade with cornstarch and sugar.
Add to skillet and bring to a boil.
Return beef to skillet. Stir and heat through.
Top with remaining 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seed and serve over rice, if desired.
*Toasting Sesame Seed: Heat seeds in a dry skillet over medium-high heat, stirring frequently until seeds are golden-brown and fragrant. Pour out of hot pan to avoid over-toasting.
