1 pound flank steak, trimmed
2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 1/2 tablespoons water, divided
2 tablespoons oyster sauce
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
3/4 pound broccoli
2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
1 large red bell pepper, halved, seeded, and cut into 1-inch pieces (about 1 1/2 cups)
4 cups hot cooked long-grain rice
How to Make It
Cut steak in half lengthwise. Cut each half across the grain into 1/8-inch-thick slices. Combine beef, soy sauce, garlic, and black pepper; toss well. Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes.
Combine 1 1/2 tablespoons water, oyster sauce, and crushed red pepper in a small bowl; set aside.
Cut broccoli into florets. Peel broccoli stems; cut stems diagonally into 1/4-inch-thick slices.
Heat 1 tablespoon canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef mixture to skillet; cook 3 minutes or until beef is browned, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Transfer beef mixture to a bowl.
Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon canola oil in pan over medium-high heat. Add broccoli; cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons water; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add bell pepper; cook 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Return beef mixture to pan. Stir in the oyster sauce mixture; cook until thoroughly heated. Serve over rice.

This is a favorite at our house but we have made a few changes from the original recipe. I normally marinate the meat for several hours and add extra garlic in the marinade. I also add slices of white onion with the veggies and skip the broccoli stems. The sauce isn't thick but it has great flavor and we have never added corn starch.
I made this tonight since I had some frozen stir beef thawing out already. I found this recipe since I had the ingredients on hand. It was easy to prepare and easy to follow the recipe although i saw a video prior to similar steps. Great flavor. You can never go wrong with Asian recipes for beef! I added white onion, red bell pepper, green bell pepper, some mini Asian Corn, broccoli, low sodium soy sauce, and some extra oyster sauce because i had lots of veggies. I made some home made baked spring rolls to go on the side Thanks for the quick and easy recipe! I will add this to my cookbook. Thanks for the calorie information too!
the is a quick and delicious stir-fry. I doubled by sauce and added a little more water to cut the saltyness from the oyster sauce. I also thickened my sauce with about a tablespoon of cornstarch b4 adding to the pan.
My family really liked this meal. It had a bit of spice that we are not used to, but loved, and it was so easy to make on a hot day. Easy + quick marinade, and the oyster sauce tasted really great (never used before). I steamed frozen broccoli with frozen sugar snaps + pepper mix and added as a side. I will definitely be making this easy meal again!
This is an all-time favorite for my family. I have been making it about once a month since the recipe came out in July 2009. We love it. I make it as-is, except I add one onion, cut into quarters. I probably add more garlic, too - I just kind of toss some in. The sauce is not thick, but the rice soaks it up and it is very flavorful.
