Another of my experiments that turned out really well.

2lbs. thin sliced or finely cubed steak (I use round or sirloin)
2-3 stalks celery diced
1 green bell peppers diced
1 bag of frozen chopped broccoli
5 dried bird chillis
3Tbl. minced garlic plus 2 more Tbl. garlic
cooked rice

Sauce ingredients
1/2cup rice vinegar
1/2cup chicken stock or(3tbl.chicken base or bullion dissolved in 1/2cup water)

2Tbl. soy sauce (kikkomans)
1Tbl. sesame oil
1/4cup chilli garlic sauce-or- Homemade chili garlic sauce
2Tbl. sugar
1/2tsp. pureed ginger

Mix sauce ingredients in a bowl and set aside
Heat wok or skillet, add 1tbl. oil, add 2Tbl.garlic and chillis all at once and toss for 10 seconds, then add beef.
Stir fry until done,(about 5 minutes)put steak in a bowl set aside.
Heat wok again, add 1tbl oil. and 2Tbl.garlic. Add celery, bell pepper and broccoli stir fry until just tender.
When done add the steak and the sauce mixture. Heat through and serve over rice.

                         Diced vegetables-broccoli, celery, green bell pepper

                                                Stir fry beef -set aside

                                              Stir fry vegetables
