Asian cooking has a lot of stir fried dishes. Traditionally a wok is used but you can use a large non stick frying pan as well. I will be using a wok. Stir frying is quick cooking over high heat with minimal amounts of oil. I used flank steak for this recipe and when using this particular cut of meat make sure you slice it against the grain and on the bias.
Chinese Beef with Broccoli Stir Fry
1 1/2 lbs. flank steak, sliced against the grain
2 tbsp. lite soy sauce
1 tsp. cornstarch
3-4 tbsp. oyster sauce
1 tbsp. Chinese black vinegar
4 cups broccoli florets, cut in small pieces (steamed in a steamer or microwave)
1 tbsp. peanut oil
2 tbsp. garlic, minced
Marinate the beef in the soy sauce and the cornstarch for at least an hour. Turning the beef after about a half hour.
Mix together the oyster sauce and vinegar in a small bowl.
In a large wok or frying pan heat the oil over high heat and when hot add the garlic. Cook for about 15 seconds until the garlic gets fragrant. Add the steak and let it cook without touching for about a minute. You may need to add the steak in batches. Turn the steak over and cook the other side. Once the meat is mostly cooked pour in the sauce and combine with the meat. Cook for another minute or two making sure the meat is no longer pink. Add the steamed broccoli and toss with the meat and sauce. I served this over white rice.
