    Marinade Ingredients:
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 3 Tbsp. rice wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. corn starch
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper
  • Stir-Fry Ingredients:
  • 1 lb. thinly sliced flank steak or sirloin, cut diagonally across the grain into thin strips
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 8 ounces button mushrooms, halved
  • 4 ounces shiitake mushrooms, halved
  • 3 cups chopped kale
  • 2 scallions, sliced thinly diagonally 

To Make The Marinade:
Add all marinade ingredients to a bowl and whisk to combine. Pour marinade into a large bowl or ziplock bag, then add in the steak and gently toss to combine. Cover and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.

1. Once steak has marinated, heat 1 Tablespoon olive oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Remove steak from marinade, reserving the marinade, and add to saute pan.  Saute for about 2-3 minutes until browned, stirring occasionally. Remove steak and set aside.
2. Add mushrooms, kale, and garlic, and  reserved marinade to saute pan, and stir to combine. Cook for 3-4 minutes on medium-high heat until the kale is wilted, the sauce has thickened, and the mushrooms slightly cooked.  Keep stirring so that sauce does not burn. Add in the steak, and toss to combine. Serve on top or on the side of rice, and garnish with scallions.
