  • 2 lb beef sirloin
  • 2 tbsp cooking oil
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 1/2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp dark soy sauce
  • ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp finely chopped ginger
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp chicken powder (optional)


  • green and red bell pepper
  • onion
  • celery (optional)
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • cooking oil, for sauteing


  • 1 cup water
  • 2 1/5 tbsp cornstarch, divided
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp dark soy sauce
  • salt and ground black pepper, to taste


Step 1

Thinly slice the sirloin, then chop them into smaller pieces. Transfer them to a large mixing bowl, then add 1 1/2 tbsp cornstarch, 1 tsp chicken powder, salt and ground black pepper to taste, 1 tsp minced garlic, 1 tsp finely chopped ginger, 2 tbsp cooking oil, 1 tsp dark soy sauce, 1 tsp soy sauce, and 2 tbsp honey. Mix well, making sure each sirloin piece is coated properly. After this, cover it with a cling wrap, refrigerate it, and let it marinate for 30 minutes. In the meantime, prep the veggies. Dice the green and red bell pepper into large pieces, chop the celery and onion, and mince 1 tsp worth of garlic and ginger. Set them aside.

Step 2

For the slurry sauce, combine 1 cup of water and 1 1/2 tbsp cornstarch. Mix well. Next, add 1 tbsp dark soy sauce, 1 tbsp soy sauce, and salt and ground black pepper to taste. Continue mixing until everything is combined. Now, start cooking the steak. Heat some cooking oil in a large pan over medium-high heat, then fry the sirloin steak in batches. Once browned, remove from the pan and set the meat aside. In the same pan, add 1 tsp minced garlic, 1 tsp finely chopped ginger, chopped onions, celery, and diced bell peppers. Saute for a few minutes, then add the slurry sauce. Mix well. Once it starts thickening, add the cooked sirloin back into the pan. Toss them well, then serve.
