Ingredients

  • 2 (cup) vegetable oil, plus 2 teaspoons
  • 1 (tablespoon) garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 (cup) soy sauce or tamari
  • 1/2 (cup) water
  • 2/3 (cup) dark brown sugar
  • 1 (pound) beef flank steak, sliced 1/4 inch thick on the diagonal
  • 2 (bunch) green onions, cut in 2-inch lengths

Directions

  1. Heat 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil in a saucepan over medium heat, and cook and stir the garlic until it releases it's fragrance, about 30 seconds. Pour in the soy sauce, water, and brown sugar. Raise the heat to medium-high, and stir 4 minutes.
  2. Heat the rest of the vegetable oil in a deep-sided skillet or wok to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. Drop beef into the hot oil, a few at a time. Stir briefly, and fry until the edges become crisp and start to brown, about 2 minutes. Remove the beef from the oil with a large slotted spoon, and allow to drain.
  4. Pour the oil out of the skillet or wok, and return the pan to medium heat. Return the beef slices to the pan, stir briefly, and pour in the reserved sauce. Stir once or twice to combine, and add the green onions. Bring the mixture to a boil, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes more.

    My family really enjoyed this including my 5 year old. I added extra veggies to the mix including red pepper and brocolli. They ate the entire thing.

    I omitted the green onions, and addes brocolli and carrots. I also cooked the beef in sesame oil and addes sesame seeds. It was a big hit!

    this was amazing, served with rice and broccoli on the side. my grocer did not have any skirt steak or flank steak, but they had some other thin cut that i used (i forget what it was called), and it still came out great, I'm sure any thin cut of beef will work fine with this. it was delicious, no doubt about it.

    I'm glad to hear that this was a success Mike! Sometimes grocery stores label thinly sliced beef simply as "stir-fry beef." This is usually flank, sirloin, or round tip steak or top loin or beef tenderloin.

    First recipe I've tried since signing up. It was delicious! I tweaked it a little by adding a scrambled egg. And instead of rice, we used noodles. Definitely a do again.

    Good but added more vegetable like red bell pepper. I also reduced the amount of oil.
