Ingredients

1 lb Skirt Steak thinly sliced against the grain

1/2 teaspoon Salt

1/2 teaspoon Brown Sugar

1 teaspoon Soy Sauce

1 teaspoon Rice Wine Vinegar

1/2 teaspoon Sesame Oil

1/8 teaspoon Baking Soda

1/2 teaspoon Cornstarch

Stir Fry

2 tablespoons Soy Sauce

2 tablespoons Rice Wine Vinegar

1/4 cup Broth chicken or beef

1/4 cup Oyster Sauce

2 tablespoons Brown Sugar

1 teaspoon Sesame Oil

3 tablespoons Peanut Oil

1 teaspoon Cornstarch

1 lb Fresh Broccoli Florets

3 Garlic Cloves minced

2 Scallions green parts only chopped

Directions

Beef: Mix the Salt, Brown Sugar, Soy Sauce, Rice Wine Vinegar, Sesame Oil, Baking Soda, and Cornstarch together in a medium-sized bowl and add in the Skirt Steak. Toss to coat and set aside for 20 minutes.

Sauce: In a small bowl whisk the Soy Sauce, Rice Wine Vinegar, Broth, Oyster Sauce, Brown Sugar, Sesame Oil, and Cornstarch and set aside.

Heat 1 tablespoon of oil over high heat and place half of the beef in the wok (or skillet) in a single layer. Cook without moving for 1 minute to brown, toss and continue to cook stirring frequently for an additional 1 to 2 minutes. Remove and set aside in a bowl. Repeat this step by adding another 1 tablespoon of oil and the remaining beef.

Place the final 1 tablespoon of oil to the wok. Add in the Broccoli and cook, tossing frequently for 1 minute. Next, add the Garlic Cloves and Scallions, and cook for an additional 1 minute. Pour the reserved sauce mixture into the skillet and cook for about 5 minutes, until sauce thickens (pay attention to the broccoli and if it becomes tender before the sauce has thickened use a slotted spoon to remove and set aside in a bowl).

Place the beef back into the wok and toss to mix and coat with the sauce. Garnish with additional scallions or sesame seeds.
