Ingredients:2 teaspoons canola oil
1/2 teaspoon ginger, minced
1 tablespoon garlic, chopped
1/2 cup soy sauce ( I use low sodium)
1/2 cup water
3/4 cup brown sugar
Canola oil, for frying ( about 1 cup)
1pound flank steak
1/4 cup cornstarch
2 large green onions, sliced into 1-inch diagonally
Step 2: Don't let the oil get too hot.
Step 3: Add to the oil the ginger and garlic and add the soy sauce and water quickly so the garlic doesn't burn.
Step 4: Add the brown sugar in the sauce and let dissolve, then raise the heat to medium and boil the
sauce for 2-3 minutes or until the sauce thickens.
Step 5: Remove the sauce from the heat.
Step 6: Slice the flank steak into 1/4-inch thick slices against the grain.
Step 7: Place the steak pieces into the cornstarch and get a very thin dusting to both sides of each piece of steak.
Step 8: Let the steak sit for about 10 minutes; this lets the cornstarch sticks.
Step 9: Heat up one cup of Canola oil in a wok.
Step 10: Heat the oil over medium heat until very hot.
Step 11: Add the steak to oil and sauté for 2 minutes
Step 12: Remove steak from the oil and place onto a paper towel-lined plate.
Step 13: Remove the oil out of the pan and return to the heat; add the steak back into the pan and cook for 1 minute.
Step 14: Add the sauce to steak and cook for 1 minute.
Step 15: Add the onions to steak sauce mixture and cook for 2 minutes.
Serve over rice.
