– 2 Tbsp unseasoned rice vinegar
– 5 Tbsp soy sauce (use gluten-free soy sauce if needed)
– 1 Tbsp honey
– 1 Tbsp ginger, peeled & grated.
– 1 teaspoon chili pepper flakes
– 1 teaspoon ground cumin
Beef and stir-fry
– 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 lb top sirloin steak
– 1 Tbsp cornstarch
– 2 Tbsp vegetable oil (preferably peanut)
– 1 Tbsp dark toasted sesame oil (optional)
– 3-4 green onions, cut on a diagonal, 1/2-inch apart, including the greens
– Handful of tender-steam broccoli ( blanched )
– 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
– 2-3 hot chilies, seeded, sliced
– 1-inch nob of ginger, peeled, cut lengthwise into matchstick shapes
– 1/2 cup loosely packed, chopped Coriander
– 1 Scallion, sliced lengthwise in to strips for garnish.
1. Steak strips: Slice the steak first crosswise in 1/2-inch thick slices. Then cut each slice lengthwise into strips.
2. Marinate the beef: In a medium bowl, whisk together the marinade ingredients; the soy sauce, vinegar, grated ginger, honey, red chilli flakes, and cumin. Mix the beef in with the marinade to coat and let it sit for at least 30 minutes, in the fridge.
3. Make cornstarch slurry: In a small bowl or a seal lid jar, mix the cornstarch with 2 tablespoons of cold water to make a slurry.
4. Brown the beef strips: Heat the oil in a wok (vegetable oil plus dark sesame oil if using), or a large sauté pan, over high heat until it is nearly smoking. As the oil is heating up, add the beef, sauté beef until just brown outside but rare inside, no more than 1 minute. Transfer beef to a bowl.
5. Stir fry chilies, garlic, ginger, and broccoli : When all of the beef is cooked, put the chilies and garlic into the pan and stir-fry 30-45 seconds. Add the ginger and broccoli cook for 30-45 seconds more.
6. Add beef, cornstarch slurry, scallions: Add the beef back to the pan. Add the cornstarch slurry. Add the scallions and mix everything together. Cook for 1 minute.
7. Remove from heat, stir in coriander: Turn the heat off and mix in the coriander. Serve at once with a bowl of steamed Thai Jasmine rice and garnish with some sliced scallions.
