- DescriptionThe marinated flank steak featured in our Szechuan-Style Beef is simply succulent on its own. But we added hearty stalks of Chinese broccoli and sliced scallions to round it out, both veggies adding a necessary bite. Delicious ingredients aside, this authentic dish is about the sauce — we added tongue-numbing Szechuan peppercorns and fiery ground chilis for that extra kick. And then there was nothing left to do but eat — it was perfect.Heating Instructions
Remove the sauce cup from the vegetable container and set aside. Our chef recommends using a 10-12 non-stick sauté pan or wok. Heat the pan for 2 minutes over medium-high heat.
To cook Chinese broccoli in the microwave: While the pan is heating, microwave the Chinese broccoli bag for 2-2 ½ minutes, FreshDirect logo side up. Remove the Chinese broccoli steam bag from the microwave, carefully open at the seam and reserve.
To cook Chinese broccoli on the stovetop: Heat the pan for 2 minutes over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil to the hot pan. Add the Chinese broccoli (from the bag) to the pan. Stirring frequently, cook for 3-4 minutes or until al dente and reserve.
Add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil to the hot pan. Add the beef to the pan in a single layer; sear for 1 minute (or until golden brown). Turn the pieces over and cook for 1 minute longer. Add the vegetables and sauce to the pan. Toss to coat all ingredients and cook for 1 minute more.

- Explanatory Information
About our Heat Index: We've developed this Heat Index to give you an approximation of how spicy a particular dish tastes. Keep in mind that people tolerate chili heat in very different ways, so this scale may not reflect your individual experience with a dish.* NO HEAT There's no heat here — safe for the kids. MINOR HEAT Expect no more than a little tingle on the tongue. SUBTLE HEAT One might describe this dish as "peppery." MEDIUM HEAT A spicy warmth that builds as you eat and lingers a while. STRONG HEAT This dish has kick — keep a cool beverage on hand. FIERY HEAT Your eyes will water. Your nose will run. You've been warned.
*Note for sensitive palates: Heat ratings are never guaranteed! Due to unpredictable environmental variations that range from rainfall to chance genetic changeability, chili spice often differs. Even two identical-looking jalapeños can pack two very different heat levels.
