In a medium sized bowl, toss beef strips with cornstarch until well coated.
In large a skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add beef and sear on all sides, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate; set aside. In same skillet, add onion, cooking until golden, about 10 minutes. Stir in garlic, ginger, red chili flakes, soy sauce and vinegar; cook, stirring until fragrant, about 1 minute.
