  • 12 ounces flank steak, trimmed
  • 1/3 cup fresh tangerine juice
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dry sherry
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha or other hot sauce
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 teaspoons canola oil
  • 8 ounces snow peas, trimmed
  • 3 scallions, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon slivered tangerine zest
  • Steamed jasmine rice, for serving, optional


1. Halve steak lengthwise; freeze for 15 minutes to firm slightly. Thinly slice crosswise.

2. In a small bowl, combine tangerine juice, oyster sauce, soy sauce, sherry, ginger, garlic, cornstarch, sriracha and a generous grind of pepper.

3. Warm a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until very hot. Add 2 tsp. oil; swirl to coat. Add half of steak; sear for 1 minute. Toss until steak just loses its raw color, 30 seconds longer. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with 2 tsp. oil and remaining steak. Pour off and discard any liquid in skillet.

4. Add remaining 2 tsp. oil to skillet; swirl to coat. Add snow peas and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add scallions; stir-fry for 30 seconds. Add sauce, reduce heat to medium and simmer for 1 minute. Return steak to skillet and cook until just warmed through, about 1 minute. Stir in zest. Serve with rice, if desired.
