Think you can't make Chinese food? Think again! This will make you look like a pro and tastes even better than take out. The flank steak is so tender it almost melts in your mouth. Make sure to prep everything first because the cooking happens in just minutes. The nutrition facts are off since the oil is used for flash frying and will be drained. From the Yang Sing restaurant in San Francisco.
