I love the new selection and have spied several that I know I will have to sample when we visit our local resturant.  I love Korean Chicken Wings and I think that these are on the top of my list.  The Miso Chicken would make an awesome main course. And who could ass up Apple CInnamon Wontons?  Oh my!

Asian Flank Steak with Brussel Sprouts and Broccoli
Serves 4 - prep time 10 minutes - cook time 7 minutes

1 lb. Flank Steak cut into 1 in pieces
½ lb. Brussel Sprouts
½ lb. Broccoli – Chinese if available
½ lb. Bean Sprouts
½ lb. Mushrooms – Asian if available
2 stocks of Celery – chopped
2 Scallions – sliced
¼ c. Oil or Garlic Oil
½ c. Soy Sauce
2 tbsp. Apple Cider Vinegar
¼ c. Water
2 tbsp. Sesame Oil
1 tsp. Ginger
2 tbsp. Minced Garlic
1 tsp. Red Pepper Flakes
¼ c. Corn Starch

In a glass measuring cup, measure out your soy sauce, add vinegar, water, sesame oil, ginger, garlic, red pepper and mix in the corn starch. Whisk together and set aside.

In a wok style pan, set it on high heat and add the oil. Once the oil and pan is hot, add the meat and continue to stir it until it is browned and about half way cooked through – about 3-4 minutes. Remove it from the pan and set aside. Add all of the veggies and your sauce (whisk again before adding) into the pan and stir frequently to cook through. Once the veggies are almost tender, add the meat back into the pan and combine everything together. Let simmer for a minute or two.

Serve with rice and additional soy sauce.
