A note about serious food allergies

This dish delivers horde-sized flavors without you having to roam around for a take-out menu. Leafy Chinese broccoli, or gai lan, brings a beautiful, slightly bitter, flavor to the dish. Add that to the green onions and sirloin steak strips being finished in a balanced sauce of salt, sweet, and heat. Place this meaty stir-fry on top of a bed of rice, and you have a meal fit for a king, or khan.

    Sear the Steak Strips

    Heat 2 tsp. olive oil in a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Place sirloin steak strips in hot pan. Cook undisturbed until browned, 1-2 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Steak strips will finish cooking in a later step. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.
