Number of Servings: 5


    1 lb. flank steak
    1 Tbs. cornstarch
    1/4 tsp. salt
    1/4 tsp. sugar
    1/8 tsp. baking soda

    2 Tbs. oyster sauce
    2 Tbs. soy sauce
    1 tsp. peanut oil
    1 tsp. cornstarch
    1/2 tsp. sugar
    1/8 tsp. freshly ground pepper

    2 cups small broccoli florets
    3 Tbs. peanut oil
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    1 small yellow onion, cut into 1-inch dice


Cut the steak across the grain into strips 3 inches long and 1/4 inch thick. In a bowl, stir together the cornstarch, salt, sugar, baking soda and 2 Tbs. water. Add the beef and stir until well mixed. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the sauce: In a bowl, combine the oyster sauce, dark and light soy sauces, peanut oil, cornstarch, sugar, white pepper and 2 Tbs. water. Set aside.

Bring a saucepan three-fourths full of water to a boil over high heat. Add the broccoli florets and blanch until just tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain, rinse under running cold water until cool and drain again. Set aside.

Remove the beef from the bowl and pat dry with paper towels. In a wok or large, deep sauté pan over high heat, warm 2 Tbs. of the peanut oil until very hot. Add the beef and stir-fry until it just turns opaque, 3 to 4 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, quickly transfer the beef to a sieve placed over a bowl to drain.

Wipe out the pan with paper towels and reheat over high heat. Add the remaining 1 Tbs. oil and heat until very hot. Add the onion and stir-fry until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic to the onion, and stir-fry until golden, about 30 seconds more.

Add the sauce to the pan, stir and bring to a boil. Immediately add the beef and broccoli and stir-fry until the sauce thickens and the beef is heated through, about 3 minutes. Transfer the beef and broccoli to a warmed bowl and serve.

    This was great! I had to substitute a few items for what I had on-hand (hoisin sauce for oyster sauce and sesame oil for peanut oil). I also added mushrooms and extra broccoli. Will certainly make again! - 4/14/15

    Very Good
    Great when you want take-out but not the calories and sodium that go with it. No complaints from the peanut gallery so definitely going to add it into the recipe box! - 4/2/14

    This was too salty for us! Next time, I'll omit the salt. - 2/26/14
