There's just enough ginger, chili powder and garlic powder in the sauce to spark the taste of this enjoyable steak specialty. For variety, you can substitute chicken or pork for the sirloin. If I'm in a hurry or don't have fresh vegetables on hand, I'll reach for two bags of frozen stir-fry vegetables instead.
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch

- 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
