Ingredients

  • SAUCE:
  • 3 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 Tbsp honey
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp oyster sauce
  • 2 Tbsp Chinese cooking wine or substitute with beef stock
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 1 tsp sriracha sauce
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • STIR FRY:
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp peanut oil or vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 in small onion sliced half
  • 1 lb flank steak sliced thinly, across the grain

Instructions

  • Combine sauce ingredients in a small mixing bowl, whisk and set aside.
  • Add oil to a large heavy skillet (or wok if you have one) and heat over HIGH heat until oil is very hot and smoking slightly.
  • Add onion and garlic to the skillet and saute for 1 minute, careful not to let the garlic burn.
  • Next, add the sliced flank steak and stir fry for about 1 minute. Slide beef, onion and garlic onto a plate and set aside.
  • Reduce the heat to MED/MED HIGH and add the whisked sauce to the skillet.
  • Cook for 1 minute, until sauce becomes thicker and syrupy.
  • Add the beef, onion, and garlic back to the skillet (make sure to get all the juices that were on the plate too, that's flavor!).
  • Heat until warmed through and coated in the sauce.
  • Be sure not overcook the beef - you want tender pieces of steak, not chewy ones!
  • Serve sprinkled with sesame seeds and chopped chives/scallions if desired.
