Beef and Spring Veggie Stir Fry

I love to make stir frys, they are a good and easy way to sneak a lot of veggies on the kids. This is just another version. The sauce and veggies are different from other stir fry recipes I have posted. I did cheat and buy a red pepper from the grocery store, we have not had one in months and I could not resist.

1 pound sirloin steak cut into strips( I like to get the already cut steak strips from fresh and easy, they are about 4 dollars a pound, and very tender)
1 cup blanched raw or thawed frozen broccoli florets
3 spring onions or green onion chopped
1 carrot sliced and blanched
4 to 6 asparagus spears, cut into 1 inch pieces and blanched
1/2 red bell pepper, sliced into strips
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon pressed garlic

Make It:
Whisk last seven ingredients together in a bowl. Heat a wok or large saute pan over high heat, spray with cooking spray and add meat. Stir fry for about 3 minutes until meat is browned. Remove meat from pan. Wipe pan out. Spray with cooking spray and add onion and pepper, stir fry for 2 minutes till both are tender. Add rest of veggies to pan and stir fry for another 2 minutes. Add meat back to pan and stir to combine. Turn heat to low. Pour sauce over top and stir until all is coated and sauce is thickened. Serve over rice or noodles. Enjoy!
