Preparation time: 20 mins

Cooking time: 9 mins

Serving: 4


  • 1 lb flank steak cut to 1/4" strips
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp light soy sauce (low sodium)
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/4 tsp white pepper
  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • 1/2 tbsp avocado oil

  Vegetables & Aromatics

  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 white onion sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper sliced


  • 2 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tbsp shaoxing wine
  • 1 tbsp light soy sauce (low sodium)
  • 1 tsp dark soy sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp coarse black pepper
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 cup high quality beef or chicken stock
  • 1/4 tsp MSG optional
  • 1/2 tbsp corn starch


  1. Slice steak against the grain into 2" pieces about 1/4" thick. Place in a bowl and add baking soda, light soy sauce, sesame oil, white pepper, cornstarch, and avocado oil. Mix well and marinate for 20 minutes.
  2. Mince garlic and slice onions and bell peppers and set them aside with the beef.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together oyster sauce, shaoxing wine, light soy sauce, dark soy sauce, coarse black pepper, sugar, beef stock, msg (optional), and cornstarch. Mix until the sauce is thoroughly combined.
  4. Heat 4 tbsp of oil in a large wok or pan over high heat and cook the beef (in batches if needed) for 2-3 minutes until golden brown. Remove the beef and leave about 2 tbsp of oil in the pan.
  5. Over medium high heat, add the minced garlic and saute for 30 seconds. Add the sliced onions and bell pepper and cook for 1-2 minutes over high heat or until the vegetables are slightly softened but still crisp.
  6. Add the cooked beef back to the pan. Mix the sauce a final time to pick up any cornstarch, then pour the sauce along the edge of the wok or pan.
  7. Mix and toss the sauce and ingredients for another 1-2 minutes over high heat until the sauce has thickened. Serve with white rice and enjoy!
