I love Asian food, but I don’t usually cook it that often. This dish however is so ridiculously yummy and easy to prepare, it has become one of my favorite recipes. It’s perfect for a weekday dinner!


What you’ll need:

  • 1 pound flank steak or London Broil
  • 1/2 tsp minced ginger
  • 1 tbsp chopped garlic
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 2 green onions, cut into one inch pieces
  • vegetable or canola oil

Heat 2 tsp of oil in a sauce pan, add the garlic and ginger, and cook it for a minute or two, then add soy sauce and water before the garlic and ginger burns. Add brown sugar and stir to dissolve. Boil over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat.

Cut the beef into 1/4 inch bite size pieces. Dip the pieces in cornstarch. Let them sit for 10 minutes, so the cornstarch sticks. Heat one cup of oil in a wok or skillet. Add the beef to the oil and sauté for 2 minutes. Remove the meat and rest on a paper towel. Pour out most of the oil from the skillet. Add the beef back to the pan an cook for one minute. Add the sauce and cook for a minute. Add green onions and cook for another minute or two. Serve with white rice.
