Ginger Beef

Ginger beef is good to have under your belt because it comes together super fast, it’s satisfying and delicious, and it only requires 4 ingredients. Pork is probably more commonly used in this dish, but I remember my mom making it with beef growing up. You could make a meal of it by pairing this with a steamed vegetable, rice, and miso soup. The beef marinates for only 5 mins, so you don’t have to plan this too far in advance.
