  1. Whisk together marinade ingredients.
  2. Pour marinade over beef strips and let sit for 20-30 minutes or longer.
  1. Whisk together all sauce ingredients and set to the side.
    • You can adjust the amount of corn starch if you prefer a less thick sauce, I usually only put in 2-3 tbsp usually.
  1. Heat a large pan (or wok) with 2 tbsp oil over med-high/high heat.
  2. Add the beef and fry for a few minutes.
    • Adding too much extra marinade liquid into the pan may cause the meat to get steamed, so I recommend either straining or use tongs to add the meat instead of just pouring it all into the pan.
  3. Add vegetable and cook until slightly softened (a few more minutes).
  4. Pour in your sauce and cook until thickened to your liking.
    • If you want to make the sauce thicker after you've started heating the sauce, make sure to make a slurry with the extra corn starch and cold water before adding to the pan. Adding corn starch to the hot pan sauce will cause clumping.
  5. Serve over rice. Garnish with sesame seeds and green onions.

    This cake is super good. Not just for breakfast. Though a nice trick is to make the batter the night before, cover and put in the fridge, then throw in the oven first thing in the morning.
