  • 1 pound flank steak
  • 2 Tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 Tablespoons cooking oil
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 cup snow peas
  • 1 red bell pepper sliced
  • 1 green onion sliced


  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 2 Tablespoons sesame seeds toasted


  • Cut beef thinly across the grain (no more than ½ inch thick, 2 inch long strips). Place it in a freezer bag (or medium bowl). Stir in 2 Tablespoons of soy sauce and the 2 Tablespoons cornstarch and set aside. Allow this to marinate at room temperature for at least 30 minutes.
  • Prepare the vegetables and set aside.
  • Prepare the sauce: Whisk together ½ cup soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic powder, and ginger. Set this aside.
  • Heat the oil to high heat in a large deep skillet or wok.
  • Add half of the meat to the skillet and fry for 3 minutes. Remove this meat from the skillet and fry the other half. Then remove it from the skillet. (You don’t want to crowd the meat or it will not sear properly.)
  • Add the vegetables (except the green onions) to the skillet and fry for 2 minutes.
  • Then add the beef back to the skillet. Stir in the sauce and heat through.
  • Sprinkle the green onions and toasted sesame seeds over top.
  • Serve over noodles or rice.
