- 1 lb flank steak thinly sliced against the grain, about 1/4 inch thick
- 1 lb broccoli cut into bite-sized florets
- 3 tbsp canola oil divided
- 1/3 cup water
- 1 tbsp grated ginger
- 3 garlic cloves minced
- 3 green scallions thinly sliced
- 1 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
- 1 tbsp shaoxing wine (rice cooking wine)
- 1 tbsp cornstarch
Stir Fry Sauce
- 3 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
- 2 tbsp shaoxing wine (rice cooking wine)
- 1/3 cup low sodium chicken broth
- 1/4 cup oyster sauce
- 2 tsp toasted sesame oil
- 1/2 tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp sriracha optional
- 2 tsp cornstarch
Add marinade ingredients into a medium bowl and whisk until smooth. Toss beef in marinade. Let beef sit in marinade for 30 minutes.
Add 1 tbsp oil to a large wok and bring to high heat. When oil is hot, add in the broccoli. Stir for about 1 minute so all the broccoli hits the pan and is coated in oil. Then add in 1/3 cup water. Cover wok with lid to help steam cook the broccoli. This should only take about 1 minute. Remove lid and stir a few times to make sure broccoli is just cooked but still very crispy. Removed broccoli from heat and set aside.
In a small bowl, add stir fry sauce ingredients. Whisk until smooth. Set aside.
Add remaining 2 tbsp of oil into pan and bring to high heat. Add in beef, placing it as a single layer at bottom of wok. If your wok is not big enough to fit all the beef at once, do this in 2 batches (using only 1 tbsp of oil for each batch instead of adding 2 tbsp at once). Let beef cook about 1 minute without moving it so that it develops a nice sear. Flip beef and do the same to other side. Your beef should be almost fully cooked but still pink in the center.
Once all the beef is seared on both sides, add in the ginger and garlic. Cook briefly, about 20 seconds. Pour in about 1/2 to 2/3 of sauce. Cook until sauce is thickened and then add in broccoli and cook and coat broccoli in sauce briefly. Taste and determine if more sauce is needed. If so, pour in more sauce and cook until thickened (about 1 minute). I only used 2/3 of the sauce. Depending on your taste preference and brand of ingredients, you may want to use the whole amount.
Turn off heat and sprinkle with scallions.
Immediately dish out beef and broccoli. Serve over rice.
Rice wine can be replaced with sherry. Do not use rice vinegar as a substitute.
