Beef With Broccoli

I discovered this delicious recipe on recipeczaar.com. My family thinks it is better than what we get at the local Chinese restaurant. It really is good and surprisingly easy.

50 min/20 min prep


2/3 lb. flank steak

1 t rice wine or dry sherry
1/2 t baking soda
1 T soy sauce
1 t cornstarch
1 T sesame oil
1/4 t sugar

Broccoli and Sauce:

1/2 lb. broccoli
1 t cornstarch
1/3 C water
7 T vegetable oil
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 t salt
1/2 t soy sauce
3 T chicken broth
1/4 t pepper

1. Slice beef across grain and at an angle into thin strips. Mix marinade ingredients in a medium bowl. Add beef strips; mix well. Let stand 30 minutes.
2. Cut each broccoli top lengthwise into 2 or 3 pieces. Dissolve cornstarch in water to make a paste; set aside. Heat 6 T oil in a wok over high heat 1 minute. Stir-fry marinated beef until very lightly browned. Remove beef, draining well over wok; set aside.
3. Add 1 T oil to oil left in wok. Heat 30 seconds. Stir-fry garlic 30 seconds. Add broccoli tops. Stir-fry 5 minutes. Add cornstarch paste, salt, soy sauce, chicken broth, and pepper. Remove from wok and arrange on a platter. Serve with rice or lo mein noodles.
