FOR BEEF

FOR SAUCE

Make beef: Trim any fat or gristle from beef and cut along grain into strips about 2 to 3 inches wide. Cut strips across grain into very thin slices. In a bowl, combine beef with remaining ingredients, stirring with your hands until coated well, and marinate at room temperature 30 minutes.

Make sauce: In a small bowl stir cornstarch into broth or water to dissolve and stir in remaining sauce ingredients. Rinse and drain black beans. Chop beans and in a small bowl combine with garlic, ginger and red pepper flakes.

Heat a wok or deep 12-inch skillet over high heat until hot and add 3 tablespoons oil. Heat oil until it begins to smoke and stir-fry beef until no longer pink and slices separate. Transfer beef with a slotted spoon to a large colander and drain.

Wipe out wok or skillet and heat over high heat until hot. Add remaining 1½ tablespoons oil. Heat oil until it begins to smoke and stir-fry black bean mixture until fragrant, about 15 seconds. Add onion and bell peppers and stir-fry until softened, 2 to 3 minutes.

Stir sauce and add to vegetable mixture. Stir-fry mixture until sauce is thickened. Add beef and stir-fry until heated through. Stir in basil and transfer to a platter. Serve beef with mock mandarin pancakes or rice.
