I have made this for years.  It came from the first Lion House recipe book I ever purchased.  The page is written on and stained from using it so much.  I have made a few changes over the years and it is still a favorite.

Rating: 51

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Serving Size: 4-6


  • 1 pound lean beef, cut in paper-thin strips ( beef is easier to cut if partially frozen)
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 5 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
