Spicy Asian Beef Stir Fry

I pinned this recipe on Pinterest a while back and I finally got around to making it for dinner tonight! Of course, I had to put my own spin on it!

  • 1 lb. flank steak, cut into small strips 
  • 1 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp. cooking sherry
  • 3 tbsp. cooking sherry
  • 1 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp. sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp. chili sauce (such as Siracha)
  • 1/4 serrano pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. sugar
  • 2 tbsp. canola oil
  • 4 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 1 cup sliced carrots
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup sliced red bell pepper
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. minced garlic
  • 2 tsp. fresh grated ginger

  1. In a bowl combine strips of beef with 1 tbsp. soy sauce and 1 tbsp. sherry cooking wine  Allow to sit while you prepare the stir fry sauce.
  2. Make the sauce: Combine sherry, soy sauce, sesame oil, chili sauce, serrano pepper, and sugar in a medium bowl. Stir to combine and set aside.
  3. To  a large skillet over high heat, add 1 tbsp. of oil to coat bottom of pan. When oil is hot add meat to the skillet. Stir fry until seared and almost cooked through, about 2 minutes. Remove from the pan and drain any excess juice from the pan.
  4. Add the other tablespoon of oil to the pan. Add vegetables to the pan, starting in batches with the ones that need the longest cooking time. I added the broccoli first, cooked for about 4 minutes, then added the onion, bell pepper and carrots, cooked another 3 minutes and then added the mushrooms.
  5. Clear a well in the center of the pan. Add the garlic and ginger, cook for a few seconds and then mix into the vegetables.
  6. Add cooked meat back to the pan. Add the stir fry sauce and mix until meat and vegetables are thoroughly coated and meat is hot. Serve with rice.
