  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 4 teaspoons canola oil divided
  • 1 pound beef top sirloin sliced into thin strips
  • 1 jalapeno pepper sliced
  • 6 cups fresh sliced peppers any color


  • In a small bowl, whisk the broth, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, garlic, and corn starch.
  • In a large nonstick skillet, heat 2 teaspoons of the canola oil over medium-high heat. Add the beef and cook until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes. Remove the beef to a plate.
  • Add the remaining 2 teaspoons of oil to the skillet. Add the jalapeno and the peppers and cook, stirring frequently, until they begin to soften, about 3 minutes. Add the hoisin sauce mixture and bring the pan to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer. Return the beef to the pan along with any juices on the plate. Stir until the sauce has thickened enough to coat the beef and vegetables.
