2. Cut beef steak lengthwise in half, then crosswise into 1/4-inch thick strips.
3. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add half of beef; stir-fry 1 to 2 minutes or until outside of beef is no longer pink. Remove from skillet. Repeat with 1 teaspoon oil and remaining beef. Set aside; keep warm.
