Ingredient IQ

The term stir-fry was first used in 1945, in the cookbook How to Cook and Eat in Chinese by Buwei Yang Chao. Her description of the Chinese technique is a memorable one: “Roughly speaking, ch’ao may be defined as a big-fire-shallow-fat-continually-stirring-quick-frying of cut-up material with wet seasoning. We shall call it ‘stir-fry’ or ‘stir’ for short.”

Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Cook the ramen

Bring a medium sauce pot of water to a boil. Stir in the ramen and cook until just tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water.
While the water heats and the ramen cooks, prepare the steak.

2

Prep and brown the steak

  • Cut a small corner from the steak packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
In a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon oil until hot but not smoking. Add the steak and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned but not yet cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan.
While the steak cooks, prepare the remaining ingredients.

3

Prep the remaining ingredients; finish the stir-fry

  • Cut the broccoli into 1-inch florets; trim any coarse stems.
  • Trim the root ends from the scallions. Cut the white and light green parts into 2-inch lengths; thinly slice the dark green parts on the diagonal for garnish.
In the same pan used for the steak, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Stir in the broccoli and scallion pieces, season with salt and pepper, and cook until slightly charred, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the steak and any accumulated juices, Mongolian stir-fry sauce base, carrots, and ½ cup [1 cup] water and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the broccoli and scallions are just tender and the steak is cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes for medium.
Remove from the heat, stir in the ramen, and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the vegetables, steak, and ramen to individual bowls. Garnish with the thinly sliced scallions and serve.
