Beef Stir Fry with Rice

Since having moved, I hadn’t used my wok in the new place.  I bought the wok for about five dollars at a thrift store.  I had to put a little bit of tender, loving care into getting it back into a good condition to use without worrying.  It has paid off greatly!  I had a dream that I was using it the night before and that just got me going.  I went to the local grocery store and found some beef that was already cut into strips for a cheap price.
