Spicy Orange Beef
Makes 4 servings

1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon baking soda
1½ pounds New York strip steak, thinly sliced crosswise

¼ cup freshly squeezed orange juice
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoon hoisin sauce
2 tablespoons oyster sauce
2 tablespoons dry sherry
2 tablespoons honey
1-2 tablespoons garlic chili sauce
½ teaspoon orange zest
1 teaspoon cornstarch

1 pound broccoli florets
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 small onion, cut in half and sliced
1 red bell pepper, seeded and cut into strips
1 medium carrot, peeled and cut ¼-inch thick diagonally
3 green onions, cut diagonally into 2-inch pieces
1 tablespoon peeled and finely chopped fresh ginger
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
Jasmine rice, for serving
2 tablespoons sesame seeds, for garnish

Whisk 1 tablespoon soy sauce, sesame oil, 1 teaspoon cornstarch, and baking soda in a medium bowl until combined. Add the steak and marinate for at least 20 minutes or up to overnight in the refrigerator.

In a separate bowl, whisk the orange juice, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, hoisin sauce, oyster sauce, dry sherry, honey, chili sauce, orange zest, and 1 teaspoon cornstarch until the cornstarch is fully dissolved.

Place the broccoli in a glass bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Poke a few holes in the plastic for ventilation and microwave the broccoli for 2 minutes.

Heat a large skillet or wok over high heat and add 1 tablespoon oil. Cook half of the steak until crisp and lightly browned on both sides, about 5 minutes; remove the meat to a plate. Repeat with 1 additional tablespoon of vegetable oil and remaining beef.

Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, onion, bell pepper, and carrot to the skillet; cook for 2 minutes. Stir in the green onions, ginger, and garlic and cook 1 minute. Add the broccoli and steak along with any juices collected on the plate to the skillet and cook for 1 minute. Pour in the sauce and stir until it thickens, about 1 minute. Serve with Jasmine rice and garnish with sesame seeds.
