Fast 'n Healthy: Beef Stir-Fry

Beef Stir-Fry with Lime-Sriracha Sauce features Sriracha, a purchased sauce that's made from chiles and is smooth and spicy. A little bit goes a long way, but if you want more heat, add 1 to 2 additional teaspoons of it.

1/2 cup lower-sodium beef broth
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 teaspoons lime juice
1 teaspoon grated lime peel
2 to 3 teaspoons Asian chili sauce, such as Sriracha

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 lb. boneless beef top round steak or top sirloin steak, thinly sliced
2 red, yellow or green bell peppers, sliced
1 1/4 cups sliced green onions (1 inch)

1. Combine all sauce ingredients in small bowl.

2 Heat wok or large skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add oil, swirling to coat; heat until hot. Add beef; stir-fry 2 to 3 minutes or until browned. Add bell peppers and green onions; stir-fry 1 to 2 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender and beef is medium-rare. Add sauce; cook 1 minute or until thickened, stirring constantly.
