Why I Love This Recipe

Chinese noodles, available in the Asian section of most supermarkets, are a delicious accompaniment. You can also serve the stir-fry over white or brown rice.

Ingredients You'll Need

3 tablespoons soy sauce

3 tablespoons apple juice

1 tablespoon cider vinegar

1 tablespoon sugar

3 garlic cloves, minced

Ground pepper

1 1/4 pounds flank steak, cut diagonally across the grain into 1/2-inch-by-3-inch strips

1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon canola oil

1 tablespoon cornstarch

1 head broccoli, stems trimmed, peeled, and cut into 1/4-inch rounds, florets separated into bite-size pieces

Coarse salt


1. In a large, shallow bowl, mix soy sauce, apple juice, vinegar, sugar, garlic, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

Add meat; toss to coat.

Let marinate 15 minutes. Transfer meat to a plate; reserve marinade.

2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over high heat.

In two batches, cook meat until lightly browned, turning once, about 2 minutes per batch. Remove meat.

Add 1/2 cup water to pan; stir up browned bits with a wooden spoon.

Pour into marinade; whisk in cornstarch.

3. In same skillet, fry broccoli in remaining teaspoon oil over high heat until bright green and crisp, tossing often, 2 minutes.

Add 1 cup water; cook until broccoli is tender, 6 to 8 minutes.

4. Stir marinade, add to pan, and bring to a boil.

Cook, stirring, until thickened, 30 seconds. Return meat to pan; toss to coat.

Season with salt and pepper.

Serve immediately.

Note: To make it easier to slice the steak very thinly, place it in the freezer for 20 to 30 minutes, wrapped well in plastic.
