  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 pound flank steak thinly sliced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup broccoli florets cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup celery thinly sliced
  • 1 medium red bell pepper cored, seeded and diced
  • 1 cup canned baby corn drained and halved
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons chili paste such as sambal oelek
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch


  1. In a large pan over high heat, heat the vegetable oil.
  2. Season the steak with salt and pepper to taste and place it in a single layer in the pan.
  3. 3-4 minutes per side, or until browned. If necessary, cook in multiple batches.
  4. Place the beef on a plate after removing it from the pan. Keep warm by covering.
  5. Toss in the broccoli, celery, and bell pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 4-5 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the baby corn and mix well. Cook for 30 seconds more after adding the garlic.
  6. Return the beef to the pan with the vegetables.
  7. Whisk together the beef broth, soy sauce, oyster sauce, rice vinegar, honey, chili paste, and cornstarch in a small bowl.
  8. Bring the sauce to a simmer over the steak and vegetables. Cook for 1-2 minutes, or until the sauce thickens. If desired, serve immediately over rice.
