  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons rice wine
  • 4 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 pound sirloin steak trimmed of fat, thinly sliced against the grain
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 cups broccoli florets
  • 4 medium scallions cut into 1-inch pieces; white & greens separated
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic

  • 2 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce


  • In a shallow glass container, whisk together the cornstarch 2 teaspoons of the soy sauce, rice wine and 1 teaspoon of the sesame oil.
  • Sprinkle the salt over the steak. Add the steak to the marinade, turn to coat, and let rest at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  • Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Add the broccoli and cook until bright green and tender-crisp, 45 seconds to 1 minute. Drain and immediately rinse with cold water to stop the broccoli from cooking further.

  • Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon of the sesame oil and add the white parts of the scallions, garlic and ginger. Cook for 30 seconds.
  • Add the broccoli, brown sugar, remaining 3 tablespoons of the soy sauce and oyster sauce. Cook, stirring constantly, for 30 seconds.
  • Add the beef and cook for 30 seconds. Remove from the heat and stir in the scallion greens.
  • Serve over brown rice.
