The Marinade

Beef and Aromatics

  • 1 pound flank steak
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons fresh ginger, finely minced or grated
  • 1 scallion, thinly sliced

The Stir Fry Sauce


Make the Marinade

  • Whisk the soy sauce, sesame oil, cornstarch and the baking soda in a medium bowl (or you can mix the ingredients in a large zip top bag for easy clean up).
  • Slice the beef into thin strips and add them to the marinade. Let the beef marinate over the counter for 15 minutes or in the refrigerator for up to 8 hours.

Make the Sauce

  • In a small bowl, stir together the soy sauce, rice wine, stock, oyster sauce, sesame oil and cornstarch. Mix until well combine.

Stir Fry

  • In a wok or large skillet heat the oil over high heat. Add half of the beef, spreading it out in a single layer. Cook for about a minute until lightly browned on the first side, Toss and continue to cook, stirring frequently for about 1 minute. The beef will not be cooked through at this point. 
  • Remove the beef from the wok and into a bowl and set aside. Pour the remaining oil into the skillet and cook the remaining beef. 
  • Return the beef to the wok and make some room in the middle of the wok. Add the garlic and ginger, Cook for about a minute stirring the garlic and ginger. Toss to combine. 
  • Add the sauce to the wok and cook stirring constantly for about a minute or until the sauce thickens. Stir in the scallions and serve.
