I found this recipe in a Sunset magazine (Oct 2008); the author is a Philippino-American chef in San Francisco named Tim Luym:
1 C thinly sliced shallots (4 - 6 large)
1/4 C each canola oil and olive oil
1 1/2 lbs top sirloin steak, cut into 3/4 inch cubes
3 large garlic cloves, minced
1 bay leaf
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 T gluten free soy sauce or Tamari sauce
2 T coconut vinegar or 4 tsp cider vinegar (coconut vinegar may be found in Asian grocery stores)
In a large skillet over med heat, saute shallots in oils, stirring often, until deep golden brown (7 - 8 minutes). With a slotted spoon, transfer shallots to paper towels to drain. Discard all of the oil except for 2 T.
Increase heat to high. Add diced beef to pan and cook until brown on one side (1 - 2 minutes). Stir in garlic and bay leaf. Turn meat; when second side is brown, stir in pepper, soy sauce, and vinegar. Boil until reduced by half, 1 - 2 minutes. Spoon meat into bowls and top with shallots.
