Sesame Beef Stir Fry
  • 1 flank steak, cut lengthwise in 5 strips
  • 3 tbsp. dry sherry wine
  • 2 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1-1/2 tsp. sesame oil
  • pinch garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. oyster sauce
  • 2-1/2 tbsp. cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp. sesame seeds
  • 1-1/2 lb. broccoli
  • 2 slices ginger root
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 tsp. oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp. dry sherry wine
  • pinch salt
  • sesame oil for frying
  1. Cut each flank steak strip into 1/4-inch slices, cutting across the grain. Place in a bowl with 3 tablespoons sherry, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, 1-1/2 teaspoons sesame oil and the garlic powder. Marinate for a minimum of 2 hours.
  2. Cut the flowerets from the broccoli stalks, then peel the stalks using a vegetable peeler. Slice into 1/8-inch thick diagonal slices.
  3. Add 1 teaspoon oyster sauce and the cornstarch to the marinated meat. Stir-fry the meat in 3 tablespoons sesame oil over high heat. When the meat is cooked add the sesame seeds and place in the center of a warmed serving dish.
  4. Heat 3 tablespoons oil in the same pan then add ginger root and garlic. Add the broccoli and stir-fry until the vegetables are tender-crisp. Add 2/3 teaspoon of oyster sauce, 1 teaspoon dry sherry and salt to taste. Place the vegetables around the meat and serve immediately, discarding the ginger slices and garlic clove. Serves 6.
