Beef to Scene!
Begin with the beef flank steak. Slice it against the grain into thin strips. In a medium-sized bowl, create a marinade with 2 tablespoons of soy sauce, 2 tablespoons of oyster sauce, 1 tablespoon of cornstarch, 1 teaspoon of black pepper and a 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda. Add the beef strips to the marinade and mix well, ensuring every piece is coated. Set it aside and let it marinate while you prepare the other ingredients.
Next, prepare the mie noodles. Simply place the noodles in a large bowl and pour hot water over them. Let them sit for about 10-15 minutes. They'll soften and become perfectly tender, ready to soak up the delicious stir fry sauce.

Finish it!
Speaking of the sauce, in a small bowl, combine 120 ml of soy sauce, 1 tablespoon of oyster sauce, 3 finely minced garlic cloves, 1 and 1/2 teaspoon of minced ginger, 2 tablespoons of ketchup, 1 teaspoon of brown sugar and 1 and 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper.
Cook the marinated beef over high heat until it's browned and just cooked through. Remove it from the pan and set it aside. In the same pan, add the broccoli and stir fry until it's vibrant green and tender-crisp. Return the beef to the pan, add the drained noodles, and pour over the sauce. Toss everything together until it's well combined and coated in the sauce. And there you have it! Simple, tasty and ready in minutes!

If you are looking to make this recipe vegetarian, tofu or tempeh could be excellent substitutes for the beef.
As for the vegetables, this recipe is wonderfully versatile. You can substitute or add any veggies you have on hand, such as mushrooms, snow peas, baby corn, or carrots.
You can experiment with adding other Asian flavors like sesame oil, hoisin sauce, or oyster sauce to the stir fry sauce. A sprinkle of sesame seeds or chopped green onions on top before serving would also add a lovely crunch and flavor.
For those who love a good kick of heat, adding some red pepper flakes or a bit of Sriracha to the stir fry sauce will do the trick.
This Beef Stir Fry is best enjoyed fresh, but it can also be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. For longer storage, it can be frozen for up to 2 months.

    It was way too salty and I used low sodium soy sauce. Such a shame because we spent $18 on the steak. It needs something to cut the saltiness – similar recipes use honey or brown sugar.

    • Anna

      I’m so sorry 🙁 There is brown sugar in the sauce and if you use low sodium soy sauce, I honestly don’t understand how it could become too salty 🙁

    • Amber

      I really enjoyed this recipe , I just added honey and it eliminated all saltiness .

  • Sophie

    Made exactly as directed and it was perfect. To those who thought it was too salty, perhaps try a different brand of oyster sauce.

  • Bri

    Followed this to the T (including the low-sodium soy) and unfortunately it’s way too salty and the black pepper overpowers it as well. I had to add a lot of water, honey and maple syrup to neutralize it. If I try this again, I’m going to cut the soy sauce and pepper in half. I really wanted to like it 🙁

    • Anna

      I’m really sorry that the recipe was too salty for you and that there is too much pepper, but I guess it depends a lot on the brand of soy and oyster sauce that is used for this recipe. The amount of pepper is very individual, I really like the pepper flavor in this recipe, but you can definitely reduce the amount of pepper to taste and add it gradually. 🙂
