Stir Fried Beef, Broccoli & Sweet Potatos

I found this recipe on Epicurious and had to share!

  • 1/4 c water
  • 3 TBS (packed) golden brown sugar
  • 3 TBS oyster sauce
  • 1/4 tsp dried crushed red pepper
  • 1 lb. flank steak, cut in half lengthwise, then crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • 1 1/2 TBS cornstarch
  • 2 1/2 TBS Asian sesame oil, divided
  • 4 c broccoli florets (about 8 ounces)
  • 1 8-ounce sweet potato, peeled, cut in half lengthwise, then crosswise into 1/3-inch-thick slices
  • 2 tsp chopped peeled fresh ginger
  1. Stir first 4 ingredients in small bowl until sugar dissolves. Set sauce aside. Place beef in large bowl; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add cornstarch and toss to coat.
  2. Heat 1 1/2 tablespoons oil in large wok over high heat. Add beef mixture; stir-fry until no longer pink outside, about 3 minutes. Transfer beef mixture to medium bowl. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in same skillet. Add broccoli, yam, and ginger. Toss to coat; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add sauce. Cover, reduce heat to medium-high, and cook until vegetables are just tender, about 5 minutes. Add beef mixture. Toss until sauce coats beef, about 1 minute. Serve.
