In bowl, whisk together soy sauce, cornstarch, wine, garlic, ginger and pepper; stir in steak, tossing to coat. Let stand for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, separate green and white parts of leeks; halve white parts lengthwise and cut leaves in half diagonally. Set green and white parts aside separately.

In wok, heat oil over high heat; stir-fry beef, in 2 batches, until no longer pink, about 1 minute, letting oil reheat between batches. With slotted spoon, transfer beef to sieve set over bowl; set aside.

Discard all but 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the oil from wok. Heat over high heat; stir-fry white parts of leeks, hot pepper (if using) and salt for 1 minute. Return beef and green parts of leeks to wok; stir-fry for 1 minute. Remove from heat; stir in sesame oil.
