In a large frying pan or Dutch oven brought up to medium high heat, add canola oil. Cook steak strips, seasoning with salt and pepper for 3-4 minutes. Add ginger and garlic; sauté another minute. Remove ingredients; keep warm. In the same pan, unwashed and brought up to medium heat, whisk together the next 8 ingredients for the sauce (coconut milk through sesame oil).
