Simple stir-fry

Making Chinese food at home may sound like a daunting task, but with a wok and a few key ingredients it is one of the easiest meals to make. There are also enough leftovers for late night snacks or lunch throughout the week.
Ingredients:
Sesame oil OR Olive oil to coat the pan
1 clove garlic, minced
½ medium onion, chopped
1 bag frozen stir-fry vegetables (local Shaw’s have a broccoli stir fry mix that works perfect)
½ can baby corn (unless your stir-fry mix includes this)
4 oz sliced mushrooms and 4 oz sliced broccoli (optional ingredients)
1lb any good steak on sale (Shaw’s has Top Sirloin on sale pretty often, ribeye works well too)
2-3 tablespoons of soy sauce and teriyaki sauce (use your own judgement)
1 ½ tablespoons House of Tsang Szechuan Spicy stir-fry sauce (optional but taste great!)
Ground ginger, paprika, roasted red pepper flakes, and pepper
Directions:
Heat wok on medium high heat.  Add oil (about 1 tablespoon).  Try to move the oil around the sides of the wok.  Add garlic and onions and season with pepper and ginger (a few shakes of each).  Add about a teaspoon of both soy sauce and teriyaki sauce.  Use a wooden spoon to keep the onion mix moving so it doesn’t burn.  Turn heat down to medium.  One tablespoon of water can be added if needed.  Add in the optional 4 oz of mushrooms and broccoli at this time.  Let this simmer with the onions for about 2 minutes before adding the frozen vegetable bag.  Add the ½ can of baby corn.  Cover the wok and let all the vegetables steam while you start the steak.  Season the steak with salt and pepper, or a steak seasoning. In a cast iron skillet on medium high heat with a little bit of olive oil, cook the steak very rare, about 3-4 minutes on each side depending on thickness.  Remove the steak from the heat and cover with tin foil and let it rest for 5 minutes.  Mix your vegetables around and season with pepper, ginger, paprika and red pepper flakes.  Add the rest of the soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, and stir-fry sauce, mix well and cover. Once the steak is ready, thinly slice it into as many pieces as possible and make them bit size. Remember it will be very rare so don’t be alarmed.  Add the slices right into the vegetables and mix. Let all this simmer together until your steak pieces are cooked to your liking.
