Soy sauce and gingerroot add great flavor to this quick beef stir-fry. It couldn’t be simpler to make, but it’s definitely elegant enough to serve someone special. Charlene Chambers - Ormond Beach, Florida

"Because of a fussy eater, I served the sesame seeds on the side, and then we forgot to use them, which is too bad because I'm sure they would add to the appearance and taste. But even without the sesame seeds, this recipe was tasty."
