Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 pounds beef sirloin, cut into 2-inch-long slices about 1/4-inch thick
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
  • 3 stalks celery, sliced 1/2 inch thick diagonally
  • 2 bunches watercress
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

Directions

  1. Season 1 1/4 pounds beef sirloin, cut into 2-inch-long slices about 1/4 inch thick, with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon canola oil over medium-high heat. Add beef to skillet; cook, tossing occasionally, until brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate with a slotted spoon.

  2. Reduce heat to medium. Add 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger and 3 stalks celery, sliced 1/2 inch thick diagonally; cook until celery is soft, about 4 minutes.

  3. Add 2 bunches watercress, trimmed and washed; toss until wilted, about 1 minute. Return beef with any juices to skillet; stir in 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil, 1 tablespoon rice vinegar, and 1 tablespoon soy sauce. Serve hot over rice.
