  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 round steaks, trimmed and sliced very thin against the grain
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, chopped
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated

  • 1 pound baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil

Pour soy sauce mixture into the pan and stir gently until the sauce thickens and the spinach is wilted, about 3 minutes. Stir in cilantro, sesame oil, and toasted sesame seeds.
