5 Tablespoons dried orange peel 1 teaspoon cornstarch 1 tablespoon light soy sauce 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce 2 tablespoons Shaoxing rice wine or dry sherry 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger 1 pound beef flank steak, thinly sliced against the grain into 2-inch-long strips 3 tablespoons vegetable oil 1/2 teaspoon Sechuan peppercorns 1 dried red chile, seeded and chopped 3 green onions, green and white parts kept separate, chopped into 1/2-inch segments 2 teaspoons hoisin sauce 1 teaspoon chili bean sauce 1 teaspoon sugar Dissolve the cornstarch in a large bowl with the light soy sauce, dark soy sauce, 1 tablespoon of the rice wine, and ginger. Add the beef and toss so that all the strips are coated, then marinate, covered, in the fridge for 20 minutes. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a wok over high heat.
