  • Using a slotted spoon, transfer meat and onion to a serving platter. Slice meat across the grain; cover and keep warm. Discard bay leaf.

  • For sauce, pour enough of the cooking liquid into a 4-cup glass measuring cup to equal 2 1/2 cups; skim off fat. Discard the remaining cooking liquid. In a medium saucepan, combine cornstarch and the cold water; stir in the 2 1/2 cups cooking liquid. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Serve meat and onions with sauce.
