  1. Stir beef and eggs together in a bowl. Whisk cornstarch and water together; stir into beef mixture.
  2. Pour oil 2 to 3 inches deep in a wok; heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Cook beef strips in oil, working in batches, until brown and crisp, about 4 minutes; remove to drain and keep warm. Repeat with remaining beef.
  3. Heat sesame oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat; stir in carrots, green onion, ginger, and garlic. Cook and stir until vegetables begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Stir soy sauce, white vinegar, sugar, and red pepper flakes into vegetable mixture; bring to a boil. Stir beef strips into vegetables; sprinkle with sesame seeds.


  • Cook's Note:
  • It is easier to slice beef thinly when it is partially frozen.
  • Red bell peppers are nice in this dish, too. Add more carrot and green onion if you like.

I fried beef in about 1 cup of olive oil. I used baby carrots cut in half, baby red, yellow and orange peppers cut in rings, and substituted 1/2 jalapeño and 1/2 serrano pepper, chopped, for th...
