  couple of great little cookbooks that I got years ago when I was
  first getting into Oriental cooking.  These are those little recipe
  card like books with spiral bindings that you see here and there in
  Asian markets and the like. I'd forgotten how good these recipes are

  3.  Clean wok.  Reheat over high heat.  Add 1 tablespoon oil.  Slosh
  around.  Add beef, garlic and ginger.  Toss-fry for about 3 minutes
  and when meat is pinkish add gravy ingredients.  Stir-fry another
  minute or so until thickened.  Add precooked vegetables.  Toss-fry
  another minute to blend and heat through.
