Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lbs flank steak thinly sliced - I buy mine pre-sliced to save time
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup soy
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 3 cups broccoli florets fresh or frozen
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil

Instructions

  • Add sliced steak and cornstarch into gallon-sized freezer bag. Shake bag until all sides of steak pieces are coated. Seal bag, removing any excess air.
  • In a small bowl combine soy sauce, water, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, sesame seeds, sesame oil and red pepper flakes.

MAKE IT NOW:

  • Add 3-4 tablespoons of vegetable to a large wok or skillet over medium high heat. Once hot, add steak pieces and stir-fry, separating the pieces and until golden and crispy on the edges on them, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Add broccoli, cook 1-2 minutes until crisp-tender.
  • Add sauce, and cook, stirring constantly for about 1 minute until sauce slightly thickens. Serve.

MAKE IT A FREEZER MEAL:

  • Label a new gallon-sized freezer bag with the recipe name.
  • Use it to toastier the steak with cornstarch, add the sauce and broccoli, toss to combine and seal the bag.
  • Place flat in the freezer and freeze.

THAW:

  • Thaw quickly by running under warm water until you can break the pieces up
  • Or place the whole thing in the fridge overnight.

COOKING AFTER THAWING:

  • Add 3-4 tablespoons vegetable oil over to a large wok or skillet over medium high heat.
  • Pour everything from the ziplock bag into the wok, stir-fry, separating pieces and stirring constantly until the steak pieces have some golden crispy edges on them, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Serve garnished with sesame seeds and green onions.
