Beef with String Beans Recipe

Beef with String Beans Recipe
serves 4

    -1 pound green beans, ends snapped off and strings removed
    -3/4 pound flank steak, trimmed
    -2 tablespoons dark soy sauce or soy sauce
    -1 tablespoon cornstarch
    -1 tablespoon Chinese rice wine or dry sherry
    -1 teaspoon sugar
    -2 teaspoons coarsely ground black pepper
    -3 tablespoons canola oil
    -1/4cup water
    -2 slices unpeeled fresh ginger
    -1 medium onion, sliced   

1. Snap green beans into halves or thirds to make pieces about 2 1/2 inches long. Slice steak with the grain into 2-inch-wide strips. Then slice the strips across the grain into 1/8-inch-thick slices.
2. Whisk together soy sauce, cornstarch, wine, sugar and black pepper in a medium bowl. Add beef and mix well. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a wok or stir-fry pan over high heat until oil is hot but not smoking. Test by dipping a spatula in the beef mixture and then into the oil; it should sizzle. Add green beans and stir about 1 minute. Add water and reduce heat to medium. 

3.Cover and cook until tender-crisp, 7-10 minutes. Transfer beans and liquid to a shallow dish. Add remaining oil to pan and increase heat to high. Add ginger and stir until oil is hot and ginger sizzles. Add onion and stir constantly 1 minute. Stir beef mixture and add to pan. Cook, stirring, until beef is no longer pink, about 2 minutes.
4. Return beans and liquid to pan and stir until mixed well and heated thoroughly, about 30 seconds. Discard ginger.
