Freeze flank steak for easier slicing, until almost firm, 1 to 2 hours. Cut flank steak across grain into thin strips using a sharp slicing knife.
For the marinade, beat egg whites in a large bowl until frothy. Stir in soy sauce, cornstarch, and wine until smooth. Stir in orange peel; add sliced flank steak; mix well to coat. Marinate 10 minutes.
Lightly peel broccoli stalks; slice into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Separate florets into bite-sized pieces. Put broccoli into a large pot of boiling water; cook 2 minutes. Drain well.
Cut peppers into bite-sized pieces. Mix chicken broth, wine, sugar, and red pepper in a small bowl. Dissolve cornstarch in water in a separate small bowl.
Heat a well-seasoned wok or large skillet until hot. Add 1 tablespoon oil; heat to very hot. Add half of the scallions, garlic, and ginger; stir-fry 30 seconds. Add half of the drained steak and orange peel. Stir-fry over high heat until no longer pink, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from wok with a slotted spoon. Repeat using 1 more tablespoon oil and the remaining scallions, garlic, ginger, and steak. Remove from wok.
Add peppers and 2 tablespoons water to the wok; cook, stirring over high heat until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Stir in broccoli and bamboo shoots; cook, stirring, 1 minute. Return beef to wok. Stir in broth mixture; heat to a simmer. Stir in dissolved cornstarch; cook, stirring, until thickened. Stir in sesame oil. Serve over rice; garnish with cilantro.
