METHOD

  1. Slice the steak into thin strips
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the oyster sauce, fish sauce, beef stock, sesame oil, ginger, red pepper flakes, and garlic.
  3. Add the steak to the bowl and mix until all pieces are coated. Set aside. Let the steak marinate for an hour, up to 24 hours.
  4. While the meat is marinating, clean and trim the broccoli.
  5. Heat a wok or a large pan over high heat. Add the olive oil to the pan.
  6. Once the pan is very hot, add the broccoli, coating it in the oil and stir frying for 2 to 3 minutes.
  7. Remove the beef from the marinade and add to the hot pan. Stir fry 2 to 3 minutes.
  8. Continue stir frying over high heat until the meat is cooked through and the sauce has reduced and thickened. This will happen naturally with high heat and continuous stirring.
