Simple recipe I found online. But the common online recipes for this are not very good. So I’ve included some ideas on how to improve this next time around. Feel free to comment with any thoughts of your own.

What you will need

1 1/2 lb flank steak

2 tbsp olive oil

1/2 tsp grated ginger

2 cloves crushed garlic

1/4 cup cornstarch

1/2 cup soy sauce

3/4 cup water

3/4 cup brown sugar

2 large carrots, shredded

2 medium scallions, sliced

How to cook

Ok, I’m used to using my hands. I wash my hands constantly when cooking. But you can use tongs if you like.

I like to add the carrots in the last 10 minutes. You can just add them straight at the beginning if you like, but they tend to get mushy and disappear into the sauce.
