1 (1-1/2 pound) lean boneless sirloin steak
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons molasses
1/2 teaspoons ground ginger

Partially freeze steak; trim fat from steak. Slice steak diagonally across grain into 1/4 inch strips.
Combine water and next 4 ingredients in a shallow dish; add steak to soy sauce mixture. Cover and marinate in refrigerator at least 1 hour. Drain, reserving marinade.
Coat a wok or large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; add oil. Heat at medium-high (375 degrees F) until hot. Add steak, peppers, and onion; stir-fry 5 minutes. Add mushrooms, and stir-fry 5 minutes.
