Ingredients:

  • 1 cup peanut oil
  • 1 pound sirloin steak, sliced into thin strips
  • 4 tablespoons cornstarch, divided

For the sauce

  • 1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha, optional
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced

Directions:

  1. Heat peanut oil in a large stockpot or Dutch oven over medium heat.
  2. In a large bowl, combine steak and 2 tablespoons cornstarch, tossing to coat and letting the steak absorb the cornstarch. Add remaining 2 tablespoons cornstarch before adding to the stockpot.
  3. Working in batches, cook steak until golden and crisp, about 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
  4. In a medium saucepan over medium high heat, combine soy sauce, brown sugar, orange juice, vinegar, garlic, ginger, Sriracha and sesame oil until slightly thickened, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in steak and gently toss to combine.
  5. Serve immediately, garnished with sesame seeds and green onion, if desired.
