Ingredients

1/2 lb. flank steak, cut into strips against the grain
2 Tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce, divided
1.25 tsp. sugar, divided
1 Tbsp. cornstarch
1 Tbsp. sherry
1/2 tsp. Chinese 5-spice powder
1/3 cup beef broth
1 Tbsp canola or vegetable oil (or sesame oil if you have it)
2 cups fresh veggies you prefer (I used red and green bell pepper, snow peas, mushrooms, carrots, baby corn, bean sprouts, broccoli)
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes, or to taste
salt and pepper


In a bowl, marinate the flank steak strips in 1 Tbsp soy sauce, 1/4 tsp. sugar and some freshly ground pepper.


Let sit for 20-30 minutes.


In the meantime, make the sauce.


In a small bowl, dissolve the cornstarch in the remaining 1 Tbsp. soy sauce.


Stir in the five spice powder, beef broth, remaining 1 tsp. sugar, and sherry.


Heat wok or skillet over high heat.


Add oil and heat until it begins to smoke.


Cook beef in hot oil until no longer pink, just a minute or two.


Add vegetables, garlic and red pepper flakes (and more oil, if necessary) to wok and stir fry for 1-2 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender.


Stir in sauce cook an additional 1-2 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Serve over rice.


Serves 2

Notes

While I think stir fry should have oyster sauce and sesame oil often, I rarely have these things around. So I made a stir fry out of things I do always have in my pantry.
