  1. Stir together 3 sauce ingredients and set aside.
  2. Heat a large heavy pan or wok over high heat and add 1 tablespoon oil. When oil is hot, add beef in a single layer and sautee undisturbed 2-3 mins. Stir and sautee another 2 min or until nearly cooked through. Season lightly with salt and pepper, add ginger and garlic and sautee 1 min.
  3. Drizzle beef with sauce to taste (I added 5 tablespoon) and stir-fry another 1 min or until beef is fully cooked through. Remove beef to a plate and cover to keep warm. Wipe pan clean with a paper towel.
  4. Place clean pan over high heat and add 1 tablespoon oil. Once oil is hot, add mushrooms, season lightly with s & p and stir fry until golden (5 min). Transfer mushrooms to the plate with beef.
  5. Add oil along with sliced onion and veggies and stir fry about 8 min or until soft and golden.
  6. Combine vegetables with beef and mushrooms, drizzle in more sauce to taste (I used another 2 tablespoon) and stir fry just until hot. Serve over steamy white rice.
