In a large frying pan, cook ground beef until no longer pink and cooked through, about 7-8 minutes. Drain off most of the fat and set the beef aside.
To the same pan, add in cooking oil and chopped vegetables. Sauté over medium high heat until tender stirring frequently, about 7-8 minutes.
While the vegetables cook, place the sauce ingredients in a large glass mixing cup and whisk until fully combined. Set aside.
