 16 oz 1 package frozen crinkle-cut French fries
 1 Habanero pepper, seeded and minced
 1 Medium orange bell pepper, sliced
 4 medium
 1 tsp Minced fresh ginger root
 ¼ cup Chopped fresh cilantro
 ¼ cup White vinegar
 2 ¾ lbs pounds top sirloin steak
 3 tbsp soy sauce, divided
 5 ½ cups sliced red onion

Cut in Slices beef horizontally into 1/4-inch strips and transfer into a mixing bowl. Add 1 tablespoon of soy sauce, and the sugar.

Add 3 tablespoons of soy sauce, and the white vinegar, and the browned beef into the saucepan. Let cook the mix for 5 - 7 minutes.
