  • 1 (1 pound) flank steak

  • 5 teaspoons white sugar, divided

  • kosher salt to taste

  • freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided

  • 2 large eggs, beaten

  • 1 onion, diced

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger

  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed

  • 2 tablespoons water

  • 3 cups cooked white rice

  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil


  1. Pat flank steak dry with a paper towel. Cut into bite-sized pieces and transfer to a medium bowl. Season with 1 teaspoon sugar, salt, and pepper. Add cornstarch and toss until well coated.

  2. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add eggs and scramble using a rubber spatula, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove eggs to a dish.

  3. Add 1 teaspoon oil and 1/2 of the meat to the wok. Increase heat to high and cook until browned on all sides and cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove to a plate. Add 1 teaspoon oil and repeat with remaining meat.

  4. Add remaining 2 tablespoons oil to the wok and reduce heat to medium-low. Add onion, garlic, and ginger; cook until onions begin to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Add peas and water; cook until peas are tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Add cooked rice, breaking it up with a spatula, and cook until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in soy sauce, remaining 4 teaspoons sugar, vinegar, and sesame oil. Add meat and scrambled eggs, toss together, and cook until heated through, about 3 minutes. Serve immediately.
