The two keys to a great stir-fry are a) having all of your ingredients ready to go before you start cooking, and b) starting with a really hot skillet to brown, not steam, your steak. Cook the steak in batches if needed to avoid crowding the pan. A thick, glossy sauce flavored with fresh soy sauce, sesame, and a punch of heat from chile-garlic sauce ties the dish together, and matchsticks of fresh ginger add a pleasant bite. Ingredients 1 cup long-grain white rice 1 pound flank steak, thinly sliced against the grain 1 tablespoon cornstarch 3 tablespoons lower-sodium soy sauce, divided 3 tablespoons chili-garlic sauce (such as sambal oelek) 1 tablespoon sesame oil 4 scallions 3 tablespoons canola oil 1 2-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and cut into thin matchsticks 12 ounces trimmed green beans 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds Directions Cook rice according to package directions. Remove from heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, toss steak, cornstarch, and 1 tablespoon soy sauce in a medium bowl until steak is evenly coated. Combine chili-garlic sauce, sesame oil, and remaining 2 tablespoons soy sauce in a small bowl. Roughly chop scallion whites and thinly slice dark green scallion tops. Heat canola oil in a large wok or skillet over high. Add steak mixture in a single layer; cook, undisturbed, for 1 minute. Stir once and cook, undisturbed, for 1 minute. Add ginger and scallion whites; cook, stirring often, until steak is well browned, about 2 minutes. Push steak to sides of pan, creating room in middle, and add beans. Cook, undisturbed, for 1 minute. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until beans are barely tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Add soy sauce mixture; cook, stirring often, until steak and vegetables are well coated, about 1 minute. Serve with rice, topped with sliced scallion greens and sesame seeds.
