Ingredients

  • 1 lb. flank steak
  • 4½ tsp. low-sodium soy sauce
  • 3 tsp. Japanese mirin
  • 1 tsp. granulated sugar
  • 1 lb. broccoli florets
  • 3 Tbsp. vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 Tbsp. minced garlic
  • 2 tsp. minced ginger
  • ¼ cup teriyaki sauce

Directions

  • Cut the beef into thin strips. In a medium bowl, combine the soy sauce, mirin, and sugar. Add the beef strips. Marinate the beef for 20 minutes.
  • Blanch the broccoli florets in boiling water for 2–3 minutes, until the broccoli turns bright green. Plunge the broccoli into cold water to stop the cooking process. Drain thoroughly.
  • Heat a wok or skillet until it is nearly smoking. Add 1½ tablespoons oil. When the oil is hot, add the garlic. Stir-fry for 10 seconds.
  • Add the steak, laying it flat in the pan. Let sear (brown) briefly, then stir-fry the meat, stirring and tossing for 2 minutes or until it is no longer pink. Remove and drain in a colander or on paper towels.
  • Heat 1½ tablespoons oil in the wok or skillet. When the oil is hot, add the ginger. As soon as the ginger starts sizzling, add the broccoli florets. Stir-fry for 1 minute.
  • Add the teriyaki sauce. Bring to a boil. Add the beef back into the pan. Cook for another minute, stirring to mix everything together, then serve hot.
