Cut beef into thin pieces, against the grain.
Place cornstarch and salt in a bowl. Coat and cover the beef with cornstarch mixture. Repeat to ensure it is completely coated.
Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat (approximately 350 degrees).
Cook for 2-4 minutes or until beef starts to get a little crispy on the edges. Repeat.
Remove beef and let it rest.
Remove most of the oil, leaving some behind. Saute garlic and ginger for 1-2 minutes. Add soy sauce, brown sugar, water, and red chili flakes. Bring to a boil and let boil for 4-5 minutes or until it starts to thicken. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook for 10-12 minutes or until it is thickened. Stir in beef and coat with sauce.
Garnish with green onions and shredded carrots, if so desired.
