Ingredients

  • 1 lb flank steak cut into 1/4 inch thick strips
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce low sodium
  • 1 tbsp red wine
  • 4 tbsp peanut oil
  • 1 large onion julienned
  • 1 red bell pepper julienned
  • 1 green bell pepper julienned
  • 3 green onions chopped

Sauce

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce low sodium
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup red wine
  • 1/3 cup chicken broth low sodium
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp ginger fresh, minced or grated

Instructions

  • In a small bowl whisk all the sauce ingredients together and set aside.
  • Add the beef, 1 tbsp soy sauce and 1 tbsp red wine to a bowl, toss everything together and let it sit for 10 minutes to marinade.
  • Add the peanut oil to a wok and heat over high heat. The wok needs to be quite hot before adding the beef to it. Add the beef to the hot wok and cook for about 3 min over high heat until it's lightly charred.
  • Push the beef to the side of the wok and add the onion and pepper s and cook for about 1 minute until the vegetables start to soften a bit. Add the green onions and stir everything together.
  • Pour the sauce over the beef and veggies and cook for another 30 seconds to 1 minute until the sauce thickens a bit from the cornstarch.
  • Serve over cooked rice.

Notes

Another cut of beef you could use is sirloin, fillet or anything suitable for stir frying. I would not recommend using brisket, chuck or any slow cooking beef cuts.
 
When you're cutting the beef, make sure to cut against the grain which means cutting the beef 90 degrees to the direction of the fibres.
