Instructions 

 

  • Cut the flank steak against the grain into thin, tiny slices. Place the steak and the starch in a large ziploc bag. Shut the ziploc bag and give it a good shake to ensure that all the pieces are well coated with cornstarch.

  • Heat the oil in a skillet that is nonstick. Add the steak to the hot oil and cook until browned. Because you don’t want the steak pieces to adhere to one another, it will require two or three batches. Additionally, feel free to add more oil if necessary after the first batch. After removing the steak to a plate, drain the oil from the skillet.

 

  • When the bell pepper is added to the skillet, let it cook for a few minutes, or until it becomes tender. Take out and place on a platter the pepper that was in the skillet.

  • Add the sesame oil, soy sauce, brown sugar, chicken broth, red pepper flakes, and garlic to the same skillet. Stir and simmer until sauce slightly thickens and reduces by approximately 25% over medium heat. The sauce took about ten minutes to reduce and thicken. Since you need additional sauce for the noodles, you don’t want to reduce it too much.

 

  • Meanwhile, prepare the ramen noodles as directed on the package.

Notes

  • Soy Sauce: Since there’s a lot of soy sauce in this recipe, I strongly recommend using a low sodium soy sauce.

 

  • Beef: Flank steak works great for this dish, but feel free to substitute with sirloin if that’s what you have on hand.

  • Noodles: Ramen noodles are preferred, but udon or soba noodles could be an exciting alternative. You can find ramen noodles in the Asian aisle of your local grocery store.

 

  • Heat Level: Adjust the amount of red pepper flakes according to your heat preference.

  • Storage: Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.

 

  • Reheating: Reheat gently on the stove or in the microwave, adding a little water if needed to loosen the sauce.

FAQs AND QUESTIONs

  • Cut your flank steak into tiny pieces to begin. Next, place the beef and cornstarch in a big ziploc bag. Shake it vigorously until all the pieces are evenly covered. To achieve that beautiful, delicate crispiness on our steak, the cornstarch is essential.

 

  • When a non-stick skillet is hot, add the beef and heat up some vegetable oil. To guarantee that every piece is thoroughly browned, you should work in batches—no sticking together allowed! After you’re done, put your beef down. Sauté your bell pepper strips in the same skillet until they are slightly tender. Put these aside and serve your steak.
  • Now, it’s time to build that rich, flavorful sauce right in your skillet. Combine the sesame oil, soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, chicken broth, and red pepper flakes, and let it simmer. The aim is to get it thick and glossy, but remember – you’ll want enough to coat your noodles!
