Ingredients

  • 1 lb top sirloin grilling steak
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced gingerroot
  • 1/4 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 sweet red pepper
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 3 green onions
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup beef stock
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh coriander

Method

Thinly slice beef diagonally into strips. In bowl, toss together beef, soy sauce, cornstarch, garlic, ginger and five-spice powder; let stand for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, seed, core and cut red and yellow peppers into bite-size chunks. Cut green onions into 1-inch (2.5 cm) lengths.

In wok or large skillet, heat vegetable oil over high heat; stir-fry beef mixture, in 2 batches, until browned, about 1 minute per batch. Transfer to plate.

Add red and yellow peppers and onions to wok; add 2 tbsp (25 mL) water and toss. Cover and steam until peppers are tender-crisp, about 3 minutes.

Return beef and accumulated juices to pan. Stir in stock, hoisin sauce and sesame oil; simmer until thickened and glossy, 1 minute. Sprinkle with coriander.
