Start with a good cut of beef. I know steak can be expensive. There are a few cuts of meat that will work for this recipe. You can talk to your grocery store butcher. I used a Top Loin New York Strip Steak (boneless). We got it on sale!
Other cuts of beef for making a Skirt Steak Recipe – Flank or skirt steak. Other cuts that are good for cutting into strips and then cooking quickly are sirloin, tri-tip, tenderloin, shoulder center (Ranch Steak), shoulder top blade (Flat Iron), and shoulder petite tender. Also, be on the lookout for chuck eye steaks. (Source)
For this recipe, you can use a large non-stick pan, stainless steel pan, or a cast-iron pan (pre-seasoned). If you are using the latter two you may need to add a little additional olive oil, as needed. And a wooden spoon for stirring.
