Marinating the Flank Steak
1. Begin by marinating your flank steak that is cut into one and a half inch slices.
2. In a small bowl, add flank steak and ingredients for marinade, mix together and set aside.
Preparing the Steak
1. Heat your skillet to high heat. Add in your neutral oil.
2. While your skillet is heating up, coat your marinated flank steak with cornstarch.
3. Once your oil is hot almost to the smoking point, add in your flank steak. You may want to add only half of the flank steak so that you do not crowd the pan. Cook in batches.
4. Once your steak has a crispy coating, remove it and set aside.
Creating the Sauce
1. While your steak is cooking, create your sauce by mixing hot beef broth, brown sugar, and soy sauce. Stir until the brown sugar is dissolved.
2. Reduce the heat to medium high. In the reserved oil, add in all the ginger and half the scallions.
3. Cook for about 20 seconds and then add in garlic. Cook until fragrant, then add in your sauce.
4. Let your sauce bubble for 1 to 2 minutes and then add in your cornstarch slurry.
5. Whisk your sauce until it starts to thicken and coats the back of a spoon.
Final Steps
1. Return your steak back to the wok. And toss until everything is evenly coated.
2. Add in shredded carrots and more scallions and serve over warm sticky rice!
3. Enjoy!
