Instructions: Cut the partially frozen flank steak across the grain to make very thin 2×1-inch strips.,In a small bowl, whisk together the oyster sauce, water, mirin and starch until the starch is dissolved. Whisk in the crushed red pepper flakes.,Heat a large nonstick skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add 2 tablespoons oil and heat until very hot but not smoking.
