  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 2 teaspoons freshly grated orange zest
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup sliced onion (1 medium)
  • 1 pound broccoli crowns, cut into 2-centimetre (1-inch) florets (4 cups)

    How to make it  

  • 1

    In a small bowl, whisk together the orange juice, soy sauce, oyster sauce, vinegar, chili-garlic sauce or red pepper sauce, and cornstarch; set aside.

  • 2

    Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a large nonstick skillet or stir-fry pan over high heat. Add half of the steak and cook, without stirring or turning, until browned on the underside, about 1 minute. Stir and turn the slices, then cook just until browned on the other side, about 30 seconds more. Transfer to a plate. Add another 1 teaspoon oil and repeat with the remaining steak, and transfer to the plate.

  • 3

    Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil to the skillet, then add the ginger, orange zest, and garlic and stir-fry until fragrant, 10 to 20 seconds. Add the onion and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add the broccoli and peppers and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Add the water, cover, and cook just until crisp-tender, about 1½ minutes.

  • 4

    Push the vegetables to the outside of the pan. Stir the orange sauce and then pour it into the centre of the pan and cook, stirring, until glossy and thickened, about 1 minute. Stir the vegetables into the sauce, return the steak to the skillet, and turn to coat.
