Ingredients:

  • 3/4 lb. flank steak
  • Marinade:
  • 1 T soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 tsp cornstarch
  • Sauce:
  • 2 T oyster sauce
  • 2 tsp dark soy sauce
  • 4 T beef broth
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar
  • Other:
  • 8 oz. kluski noodles
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 large carrot, chopped into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup chopped cabbage, such as Napa
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 4 T oil for frying, or as needed

 

Directions:

  1. Cut the beef across the grain into thin strips.  Add the marinade ingredients.  Marinate the beef for 20 minutes.  While the beef is marinating, prepare the remaining ingredients.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the oyster sauce, dark soy sauce, beef broth, and sugar.  Set aside.
  3. Fill a large saucepan with enough lightly salted water to cover the noodles.  Bring to a boil. Add the noodles and cook, uncovered, until they are al dente.  Use chopsticks or a wooden spoon to separate the noodles while they are cooking.  Drain the noodles and toss with the sesame oil.
  4. Heat the wok over medium-high to high heat.  Add 2 tablespoons oil. Add the beef.  Brown briefly, then stir-fry until it changes color and is almost cooked.  Set aside.
  5. Add 2 tablespoons oil to the wok.  When the oil is hot, add the garlic.  Stir-fry until fragrant, then add the carrots.  Stir-fry for about 1 minute, then add the shredded cabbage and cook for 1 more minute.  Add the noodles and cook for about 2 more minutes.  Add the sauce to the wok.  Return the beef to the pan.  Mix everything together and serve hot.
