1. Heat sauce in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Place the beef in first (and make sure to not crowd the pan) and cook until the pink is gone.
2. Add the rest of the ingredients little by little, starting with the vegetables and allowing the flavors to simmer together. Reduce to low heat.
3. Serve with white rice.
4. As an option, dip the beef in the egg.
