Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds flank steak thinly sliced against the grain
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 1 tablespoon Water
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

For The Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce low sodium
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger grated
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 2 teaspoon cornstarch

Instructions

  • Slice the flank steak thinly against the grain. in a large bowl, whisk together the 1 tablespoon of oyster sauce, 1 tablespoon corn starch, 1 tablespoon water and 1/4 teaspoon baking soda. Add the sliced meat and toss to fully coat, set aside.
  • Whisk together the ingredients for the sauce, set aside.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium high heat.  Add 1 tablespoon canola oil (or oil of choice). When oil is hot, add the flank steak.  You may need to work in batches to avoid crowding the pan.  Cook until beef is browned on the bottom, about two minutes.  Stir and continue cooking until beef is browned, 2-3 more minutes.
  • Add broccoli and sauce to pan, stir to coat everything, and cover.  Allow to cook until broccoli is bright green crisp-tender, about 3 minutes.
  • Remove from heat, stir again to coat in sauce and serve.

Notes

If you don't have oyster sauce, you can sub 1 tablespoon soy sauce + 1 tablespoon brown sugar.  It won't have quite as much umami flavor, but will do in a pinch.
Be sure to cut flank steak AGAINST the grain.  See which direction the muscle fibers are running, then slice across it.
