In this simple stir-fry, the freshness and crunch of sliced celery balance the savory meatiness of flank steak. We use half of the oyster sauce and fish sauce as a quick marinade for the beef, then add the remaining half at the end, to enhance the umami notes in the dish. Lime wedges and steamed jasmine rice are the perfect accompaniment.

Tip

Don't slice the celery too thinly or it will lose its crunch when cooked. Aim for slices that are ¼ inch thick. Don't stir the beef immediately after adding it to the skillet. Let it sear for 1 to 1½ minutes before flipping the slices. This develops browning that builds flavor in the stir-fry.
