Ingredients
  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 lb. flank steak, thinly sliced across the grain
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 4 cups broccoli florets (about 2 small crowns)
  • 2 tbsp. cornstarch
  • ¾ cup water
  • ⅓ cup soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. fresh ginger, minced
  • ⅛ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
Instructions
  1. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the beef and cook until well-browned, about 6-8 minutes. Once well-browned, remove from pan and set aside.
  2. In the same pan, add garlic, shallot and green onions to the beef drippings. Cook one minute, stirring frequently. Add broccoli and cover for 5 minutes.
  3. In a small mixing bowl, combine water and cornstarch and mix until no longer lumpy. Combine soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger and red pepper flakes in a medium bowl. Add cornstarch mixture and stir to combine. Set aside.
  4. Remove cover from pan and add sauce. Cook until sauce starts to thicken, about 3-5 minutes. Add beef and stir to combine, cooking an additional 2-3 minutes.
  5. Serve over brown rice, if desired.
