  • Season the steak with salt and pepper before adding to the wok, stir-frying until just coloured, 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the remaining oil and then the broccoli, peppers, carrot, and green beans.
  • Partially cover with a lid and let cook for for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables start to soften.
  • Remove the lid and add the prepared sauce from step 1, stirring thoroughly.
  • Continue to stir-fry for a further 2 minutes, tossing occasionally, until the vegetables are tender and the sauce has reduced slightly.
  • Divide the Szechuan beef between bowls and garnish with sesame seeds and coriander leaves before serving.
