Recipe type: Main
Serves: 6
  • 1 pound Flank Steak, trimmed of excess fat (ask the butcher to do this if you don’t want to deal with it yourself) and sliced thinly against the grain
  • 2 tablespoons Cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons + ¼ cup Soy Sauce
  • 3 tablespoons Vegetable Oil (or canola oil)
  • 1 large Onion, cut in half and sliced to about ¼th inch thick slices
  • 5 medium-large cloves of Garlic, minced
  • 1 inch cube of Ginger, minced
  • ½ pound (or about 4 cups) Broccoli florets, rinsed
  • 2 pinches of Red Chili Flakes (optional)
  • 1 cup of Beef Stock
  • 1 tablespoon Brown Sugar (optional, but gives just a hint of sweetness)
  1. In a medium bowl, mix sliced flank steak with 1 tablespoon of cornstarch and 2 tablespoons of soy sauce.
  2. Heat a large nonstick pan over high heat and add in 2 tablespoons of oil. Swirl it around to coat pan.
  3. Once oil is very hot (this only takes a few seconds), add in the beef in one layer.
  4. Sear for 1 minute and then flip the slices to cook for another minute on the other side.
  5. Set beef and its juices aside onto a plate.
  6. With the same pan on high heat, add 1 tablespoon of oil.
  7. Add onion, garlic, and ginger. Mix to sauté for about 3 minutes.
  8. Add in the broccoli and red chili flakes. Mix to sauté for another 3 minutes.
  9. In a small mixing bowl whisk together beef stock, 1 tablespoon corn starch, ¼ cup of soy sauce, and the optional brown sugar. Pour over the broccoli mixture. Mix to combine and cook on for about 3 minutes.
  10. Add the beef and its juices back into the pan and mix all the ingredients to incorporate.
  11. Immediately remove pan from heat and serve over rice. Don’t forget to spoon the juices over the top. Yum!
