Hoisin Beef and Scallion Stir Fry


Steak is always a favorite at my house – no matter how you cook it.  This stir fry is simple and good.  Thin sliced flank steak and scallions; hoisin sauce has a rich, sweet flavor – you can find it in the Asian section of your market.   And yes, scallions are just green onions which also have a mild, sweet flavor when you cook them.  Put it all together for a delicious, easy dinner.  It’s good served with brocoli.

 

Hoisin Beef and Scallion Stir Fry

Ingredients:
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
sea salt
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (more for serving)
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 1/4  – 1 1/2 pounds flank steak cut diagonally across the grain into  approx. 1/2 x 3 inch strips
4 garlic cloves, minced
2-3 bunches scallions, sliced about 1 1/2 in, white and green parts kept separate
rice for serving

Instructions:

1.  In a small bowl, whisk together 3/4 cup water, hoisin sauce, vinegar, cornstarch, 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper flakes; set aside.

2.  Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large non-stick skillet over high heat.  In two batches, cook steak until lightly browned, turning once.  (2-3 minutes per batch).  Transfer to a plate.

3.  Add remaining teaspoon oil to pan along with garlic and whites of scallions (if large, cut in half lengthwise).  Cook, tossing often until fragrant (1-2 minutes).  Whisk hoisin mixture to combine; add to pan along with scallion greens.

4.  Return meat to pan; cook tossing to coat steak with sauce.  Remove from heat.  Serve immediately over rice.  Sprinkled with additional red pepper flakes.

  2. This sounds so delicious! I’ll have to make it for my family {sans the red pepper flakes because of the little ones}.
