If you find yourself jonesing for take out from your favorite local, deep fryer-loving Asian joint,
you’ve already made so many healthy resolutions to distance yourself from cookies with fortunes,
If you’re smitten with perfectly soy saucy beef meets caramelized brown sugar,
you want that lovely flavor combination to like you back in a very [ful]filling,
healthy and light way,
- ½ cup chicken broth
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 4 teaspoons canola oil, divided
- 1 pound beef top sirloin, sliced into thin strips
- 1 jalapeno pepper, sliced
- 6 cups fresh sliced peppers (any color)
- In a small bowl, whisk the broth, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, garlic, and corn starch.
- In a large nonstick skillet, heat 2 teaspoons of the canola oil over medium-high heat. Add the beef and cook until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes. Remove the beef to a plate.
- Add the remaining 2 teaspoons of oil to the skillet. Add the jalapeno and the peppers and cook, stirring frequently, until they begin to soften, about 3 minutes. Add the hoisin sauce mixture and bring the pan to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer. Return the beef to the pan along with any juices on the plate. Stir until the sauce has thickened enough to coat the beef and vegetables.
