Combine soy sauce, rice vinegar, water, ground ginger and ground garlic.
Defrost and slice meat into 1" strips.
Cut against the grain of the meat.
Put in refrigerator container and place in refrigerator at least 20 minutes.
Peel ginger root, slice into thin wafers.
Dice them up with kitchen knife.
Wash scallions and slice them into small wafers.
Heat iron skillet or wok to high temperature (400 degrees) and spray with cooking spray.
When vegetables are browned, add meat, liquid and all, to skillet or wok.
Stir, focusing on browning all of the redness from the meat. The browning and cooking of the meat takes about 10 minutes; be sure not to run out of liquid.
If so, add 1 tbsp water at a time until no burning will occur.
Mix corn starch in small amount of water at very end of cooking. Pour slowly and stir quickly.
For a little extra cooking time, turn down by half and let set, but don't leave it for more than 1 minute.

I made this during the week, and everyone loved it. The only changes T made were to use chicken broth instead of water (and I increased the amount to make a bit more sauce) and I also added 2 cups of steamed broccoli and a few shakes of crushed chili flakes to the mixture.
