2 
tablespoons soy sauce
2 
tablespoons canola oil

Stir Fry:
1½
 lbs beef tenderloin, cut into strips (or some other tender steak)

INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Make a paste by combining the garlic and salt. Whisk together the garlic paste, rice vinegar, soy sauce, canola oil, cumin, and ground black pepper.
2. Place the steak in one bowl and the onions in another. Divide the marinade between the 2 bowls and let them set in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

4. Add the jalapeño, cilantro, and onions with marinade to the wok, slowly stirring until well blended. Simmer for 5 more minutes.
5. As the ingredients are cooking in the wok, sprinkle the potatoes with paprika and then fry in a separate pan. When done, add the potatoes to the other ingredients.
