  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 1 teaspoon white sugar

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

  • ¼ cup vegetable oil

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped


  1. Place sliced beef in a large bowl. Whisk together lemon juice, soy sauce, sugar, salt, and pepper in a small bowl; pour over beef and toss to coat. Stir in cornstarch. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour to overnight.

  2. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

  3. Remove beef slices from marinade, shaking to remove any excess liquid. Discard marinade.
