YIELDS: 4 / TOTAL TIME: 20 MINS

INGREDIENTS

1 lb. skirt steak, thinly sliced into 1/4" strips

kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

3 tbsp. cornstarch

1 tsp. plus 1 tbsp. canola oil, divided

1 lb. green beans, trimmed

3 cloves garlic, minced

3" piece of ginger, peeled and grated

1/4 c. soy sauce

1 tbsp. rice wine vinegar

3 tbsp. sugar

2 green onions, chopped

1 tbsp. sesame seeds

DIRECTIONS

  1. Place beef in a large mixing bowl and pat dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper, toss with cornstarch until well coated, and set aside.

  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, drizzle 1 teaspoon oil and cook green beans 1 minute. Add 2 tablespoons water and cover with a lid to steam, 1 minute more. Transfer green beans to a plate and discard any excess water.

  3. Return skillet to high heat and add remaining tablespoon oil. When oil is almost smoking, add beef. Stir-fry until beef is almost cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce to medium heat and add garlic, ginger, soy sauce, vinegar, and sugar; stir quickly to coat the beef. Add back green beans, then top with green onions and sesame seeds. Serve immediately.
