  • 2 cups sliced onions about 1 large or 2 medium (I like to cut mine in half and then vertically, you can just slice if you want)
  • 1 tablespoon neutral oil
  • 1 pound flank steak or other lean steak, cut thinly across the grain
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic about 2 cloves
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon sesame seed oil
  • ½ to 1 teaspoon Five-Spice mix
  • 1 ½ cups beef broth
  • 1 teaspoon corn starch mixed with 1 tablespoon beef broth or water
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 4 cups steamed cooked rice


  • Heat the oil in a wok or large skillet over medium heat; when hot, add the onion. Sprinkle a little salt over the onions, then cook, stirring occasionally, until they are browned, about 7 - 10 minutes.
  • While the onions brown, slice the meat and toss in a bowl with the garlic, ginger, rice vinegar, sesame seed oil, and Five-Spice mix. Let sit until the onions are done.
  • Increase the heat; then add the meat, along with the marinade to the onions and stir-fry until the meat is lightly browned; about 2 - 3 minutes. Add the beef broth; cook 1 - 2 minutes, then stir in the cornstarch mixture. Stir until thickened. 
  • Place the rice into warmed bowls, split the meat and onions over and serve. You can top with some sesame seeds and sliced green onions if desired.
