Thinly sliced ginger and chopped garlic and green onion.

All you need is beef, of course, and green onion, ginger, garlic, and red chili (if you want to add some heat). Sliced the ginger into very thin match sticks.

For the beef, I would use a good tender steak cut such as sirloin or striploin. Cut the beef into thin slices against the grain.

I love the the fragrance that ginger add to the dish. It is not overpowering, yet brings just the right amount of heat to the dish.

Do you know that ginger (along with cinnamon) can help to keep your body warm? Not so exciting for the people who sweats a lot during the summer, but if you are a kind of person who feels cold easily, eat lots of ginger. It is good for you.
