In a large skillet or wok, stir-fry the beef and remaining soy sauce in oil until meat is desired temperature or no longer pink; remove and keep warm. Add the peppers, onions, scallions and mushrooms, stir-fry for 2-3 minutes or until tender and onions are translucent.
Stir cornstarch mixture and add to the pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1 minute or until thickened and glossy. Return beef mixture to the pan, stir in cashews. Remove from pan immediately. Spoon over prepared rice. Serves 4-6.
