Tender strips of flank steak get cooked with onions, ginger, and garlic and then tossed with tender-crisp broccoli and ramen noodles in a sweet-spicy sauce made with soy sauce, chili, honey, and rice vinegar.


Units Scale

For the sauce

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 23 teaspoons chili paste (such as sambal oelek)
  • 1 tablespoon unseasoned rice vinegar

For the stir-fry

  • 3 cups broccoli florets
  • 6 ounces dried instant ramen noodles or Japanese-style egg noodles
  • 1/4 cup canola oil or other neutral flavored oil
  • 1 small onion, sliced (about 3/4 cup). You can use a yellow, red, or white onion.
  • 24 scallions, sliced (reserve 1 tablespoon for garnish if desired)
  • 1 tablespoon finely minced or grated fresh ginger (about 1-inch knob of ginger, peeled)
  • 3 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 pound flank steak, thinly sliced against the grain
  • Fresh cilantro leaves for serving, optional


For the sauce

  1. Stir. In a small bowl, stir the sauce ingredients together until evenly mixed. Set aside.

For the stir-fry

  1. Cook broccoli. Bring a medium pot of water to boil. Add broccoli and cook until broccoli is bright green and tender-crisp, 2-3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the cooked broccoli to a bowl or plate. Set aside. Let the water continue to simmer.
  2. Cook noodles. Add noodles to the boiling water and cook until noodles are just al dente, 2-4 minutes depending on brand. Drain noodles. Set aside.
  3. Cook aromatics. Heat oil in a large skillet or wok over medium heat. When oil begins to shimmer, add sliced onions, scallions, ginger, and garlic to pan. Cook until onions have softened, 5-8 minutes.
  4. Add beef. Increase heat to medium-high and add beef. Spread beef into a single layer as much as possible and cook, stirring frequently, until beef is cooked through.
  5. Add remaining ingredients. Add cooked broccoli to the pan. Pour in sauce and bring to simmer, stirring frequently.
  6. Toss. Add noodles to the pan. Using tongs, toss noodles with beef and broccoli. Continue cooking until sauce thickens slightly and everything is evenly coated with sauce. 
  7. Serve. Sprinkle reserved green onions and cilantro leaves on top and serve immediately.
