Ingredients

  • 1 lb. flank or flat iron steak sliced against the grain into ⅛" thick strips
  • 3-4 cups broccoli florets, sliced in half (about 1 medium head of broccoli)
  • 1 tbsp. sesame oil
  • sesame seeds optional, to garnish

For the stir fry sauce:

  • 1 tbsp. sesame oil
  • ¼ cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp. corn starch
  • 1 tbsp. oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp. rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. chili garlic sauce
  • ¼ cup beef broth

Instructions

  • *Optional: Freeze the beef for 30 minutes - 1 hour (makes slicing easier).
  • Slice the beef going against the grain into thin strips, about ⅛" thick.
  • Rinse the broccoli florets and slice in half then add them to a steamer basket. Bring 1 cup of water to a boil in a pot large enough to fit the basket. Add the basket with the broccoli and cover with a lid. Reduce the heat slightly and steam until the broccoli is crisp-tender. About 15-20 minutes.
  • Whisk together the sauce ingredients in a medium bowl and set aside.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of sesame oil in a large frying pan. Add the sliced beef and cook until browned on each side. Add the cooked broccoli and pour in the sauce. Stir constantly until the sauce is thickened and the beef and broccoli are well coated.
  • Serve warm with a side of rice, if desired.
