  • For the Meat
  • ½ pound lean boneless top round steak or flank steak, cut diagonally across the grain into thin strips
  • 3 large cloves garlic finely minced (about 1 ½ teaspoons)
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dry Sherry or Sake
  • ½ teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • A dash or two of red pepper flakes optional
  • For the Sauce
  • ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons white vermouth or dry white wine
  • ¼ cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic chili sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sweet chili sauce optional
  • 1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • For the Rest
  • 1 tablespoon neutral oil such as grapeseed oil, divided
  • 1 small red bell pepper seeded and diced into a large dice
  • 2 cups fresh broccoli flowerets in bite-sized pieces
  • 2 cups hot cooked rice for serving (optional)
  • Sesame seeds Chinese noodles, thinly sliced green onion, for garnish, if desired


  • In a bowl, whisk together the marinade ingredients, add the meat, toss well, and set aside while you prepare the sauce and vegetables. 
  • Mix the sauce ingredients together and set aside.
  • Bring a small amount of lightly salted water to a boil in a skillet, or your wok, add the broccoli, stir in the water until they just turn bright green, about 1 minute. Remove immediately to an ice bath. (This quick blanch ensures the broccoli retains its bright green color ). Heat half the oil in a wok or large skillet, when hot, add the meat along with the marinade and stir-fry for two minutes or until the meat is just beginning to cook. Remove from pan and set aside. Add the remaining oil along with the bell pepper and cook for 1 minute or until crisp-tender, then add the broccoli, cook 1 minute more until hot and crisp-tender. Return the meat to the pan; add the sauce ingredients, stir fry quickly until the sauce thickens slightly and all the ingredients are coated. Serve over rice with optional toppers.
