  • 1.5 lb. New York Strip Steak cut into strips (see photo)
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 cup carrot shoe string or thinly sliced
  • 6 whole garlic cloves sliced
  • 1 large red jalapeno or chili pepper petite diced
  • 3 tbsps. vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup hot and sweet sauce i used go-chu-Jang
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 3/4 tsp salt or less to taste
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 tbsp. toasted sesame seeds if desired for garnishing.


  • Cut the steak into 2 inch strips. See photos
  • Bring a large skillet to high heat and add 2 tbsps. of oil. Place the strips of meat about 1/2 inch apart from each other. Do not over crowd. Do 2 batches if needed. Cook the strips of high heat on each side for 1-2 minutes until golden brown. Remove and set aside.
  • In the same skillet, add 1 tbsp. of oil and sauté the onions, carrots and garlic for a few minutes. Add in the broccoli and the steak back into the pan and season with salt, pepper and add the hot and sweet sauce.
  • Mix and cook everything together on medium heat for 2-3 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and serve. Garnish with some sesame seeds if desired.


  • Use a large pan/skillet or wok.
  • Make sure your pan is hot before adding your ingredients.
  • Prep your ingredients before firing up the pan, things move quick!
  • For really thin steak strips you can place your meat in the freezer for 30 mins. This makes for firmer meat which you can slice more thinly.
  • Cut your slices into even sized strips, so they cook evenly.
  • Keep everything bite sized! All your ingredients should be bite sized, this way they cook quickly and you can get more flavors on you fork!
  • Stick to oils with high smoke points, like vegetable oil, grape seed, canola or avocado. Avoid low smoke point oils like olive oil.
  • If you want it milder, omit the jalapeno/chili pepper.
  • Garnish with toasted sesame seeds for a pop of crunch!
  • Fell free to toss in other veggies, but be wary that harder veggies can take longer to cook.
