"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

1 c. Yoshida's Original Gourmet Sweet & Savory sauce, divided
1/2 of a 1.06 oz. packet Lawry's Beef Marinade
1 1/2 lbs. top loin beef steak, sliced in very thin strips
cooking oil
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 to 3 crowns fresh broccoli, chopped into bite-sized pieces
2 to 3 carrots, peeled and sliced
1/2 to 1 yellow onion, chopped
1 dozen fresh asparagus spears, sliced
approx. 1 c. bean sprouts
approx. 1 c. Chinese pea pods
1 c. mushrooms, sliced
1/2 c. whole cashews
2 to 3 tsp. cornstarch
1 to 2 tsp. sesame oil (optional)
white rice

Chicken Variation:
3 chicken breasts, cut into 1" chunks
1 tsp. salt
1 T. cornstarch
1 egg white, beaten

Combine 3/4 c. of the Yoshida sauce, beef marinade, and meat in a bowl and let marinade approx. 15 minutes. (If using chicken variation, omit the 3/4 c. Yoshida sauce, beef marinade and steak. Replace with variation ingredients that have been mixed together well to coat the chicken). Generously coat the bottom of a large frying pan with cooking oil and warm on high heat. Add the crushed garlic and beef and stir fry over high heat until the meat is cooked through. Remove meat from skillet and set aside. To the same skillet add the hard vegetables (onion, carrots, broccoli, asparagus) and stir fry at high heat for 1 to 2 minutes. Cover skillet with lid and let vegetables steam for 5 minutes. Uncover and add the remaining soft vegetables (pea pods, mushrooms, bean sprouts) and stir fry for 2 to 3 minutes. Add in the cashews and beef. In a small bowl whisk together 1/4 c. Yoshida sauce and 2 to 3 tsp. cornstarch. Add to the side of the skillet and whisk until sauce begins to thicken. Add a little water if sauce is too thick. Sprinkle 1 to 2 tsp. sesame oil. Stir once more to coat meat and vegetables with sauce and sesame oil. Serve over cooked white rice.
