  • Add the seasoned beef to the wok and use a large wooden spoon to spread the beef strips evenly in the pan.
  • Cover the wok and let the beef cook on medium - high heat for 2 minutes.
  • Stir the pan to flip the beef over, cover, and cook for 2 minutes more.
  • Toss the beef in the pan for another minute then add the chopped onions and bell peppers, then stir-fry for 2 minutes more.
  • Pour the sauce unto the beef and stir lightly for 1 minute.
