Directions

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoon mirin, (see Note)
  • 2 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 8 ounces flank steak, trimmed of fat and very thinly sliced against the grain (see Tip)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 2 teaspoons chopped jalapeno pepper, or to taste
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh ginger
  • 4 cups mung bean sprouts
  • 1 6-ounce ba baby spinach
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds, (see Tip), optional

Cooking Instruction

Step 1

Combine mirin, soy sauce and cornstarch in a small bowl.

Step 2

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Spread steak out in the pan and cook until seared on one side, about 1 minute. Add garlic, jalapeno and ginger and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add bean sprouts and spinach (the pan will be very full). Pour the mirin mixture into the pan and stir gently until the sauce thickens and the spinach is wilted, about 3 minutes. Stir in cilantro and sesame oil. Serve topped with sesame seeds (if using).
