Yesterday, while casually browsing the internet, I stumbled upon this recipe by Cooking With Claudia on YouTube. I immediately went to my kitchen to check if I have most of the ingredients already available and I was delighted upon seeing that I actually do! I tried making it for dinner and it turned out to be so yummy, plus it’s very easy to make too.



  • 1½ pounds flank steak
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1½ tsp Italian seasoning
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • ½ cup Hoisin sauce
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • ¼ cup beef broth
  • 6 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 medium onion, minced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp ginger, minced
  • ¼ tsp red pepper flakes
  • ¼ cup chopped spring onions, plus more for garnish


Step 1

Lay the flank steak flat on the chopping board, then start slicing it thinly making sure to cut against the grain. Transfer them into a large mixing bowl, then season with salt and pepper to taste, and add the Italian seasoning and cornstarch as well. Toss them together until evenly seasoned, then set them aside. In a separate mixing bowl, mix together the hoisin, soy sauce, beef broth, and brown sugar, then stir them until incorporated and uniform, and set the sauce aside until ready to use. Place a pan on a stove over medium-high heat, then add in the vegetable oil, and let it heat up until smoky. Add the seasoned steak into the pan making sure they are placed in a single layer.

Step 2

Sear the steak on both sides until nice and golden brown, remove from the pan, then cook the next batch of seasoned steak. Reduce the heat to medium and add more oil if needed. Toss the minced onions and cook them for about 5 minutes or until caramelized, then add the minced garlic and red pepper flakes. Give them a good stir and cook them for about 30 seconds or until fragrant. Add the seared steak back into the pan, then add some chopped spring onions as well. Stir them around and let them cook for an extra 30 seconds before pouring the prepared sauce mixture. Let them cook for 1 more minute, then serve.
