1.  Thinly slice beef against the grain into bite size pieces and add to a large ziploc bag. (Placing the meat in the freezer for 15 minutes will help to get thin even slices.)

2.  In a small mixing bowl add soy sauce, red wine vinegar, honey ginger and garlic. Stir until honey is incorporated.

3.  Add 1/3 cup marinade (half) to ziploc bag with meat. Place meat in refrigerator to marinade for at least 2 hours or overnight.Set remaining sauce mixture aside to be used later.

4.  Get your wok or skillet preheated over high heat with a bit of oil. Add meat in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan and allow it to sizzle untouched for 1-2 minutes before flipping to other side. Remove from pan (allow 30 seconds-1 minute for it to heat back up before adding remaining batches of meat.)

5.  While meat is cooking toss your frozen stir fry veggies and noodles in another non-stick skillet with a bit of oil. Cook according to package directions.

6.  When all meat has been cooked add 1 tsp cornstarch to remaining sauce and whisk to combine.

7.  Add all meat back to skillet and pour in remaining sauce. Allow to heat through 1-2 minutes to slightly thicken sauce and remove from heat.

8.  Add stir fry veggies to bowl and top with stir fry beef and a few spoonfuls of sauce from the pan.

9.  Dig in and enjoy!
