Beef with Broccoli
Ingredients:

2/3 pound flank steak or other tender beef
Marinade:
1 teaspoon rice wine or dry sherry
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 Tablespoon sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1/2 pound broccoli tops
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1/3 cup water
7 Tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 teaspoon salt (I only use 1/4 teaspoon or omit altogether)
1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
3 Tablespoons chicken broth
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Instructions:

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.
Cut each broccoli top lengthwise into 2 or 3 pieces.
Dissolve cornstarch in water to make a paste; set aside.
Heat 6 Tablespoons oil in wok over high heat 1 minutes.
Stir-fry marinated beef until very lightly browned.
Remove beef, draining well over wok; set aside.
Add 1 Tablespoon 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.
Stir-fry until sauce thickens slightly.
Add cooked beef, mix well.
Remove from wok and arrange on platter.
Makes 6 servings.
Variation:
After stir-frying broccoli, add beef.
Stir-fry beef and broccoli 30 seconds to mix well.
Mound on a plate or in a bowl over rice to serve.
NOTE: I have learned with MANY Chinese recipes that have a dark sauce made with beef flavoring that adding a few tablespoons of Chinese oyster sauce gives that "Chinese-restaurant taste" that is difficult to capture at home! So,although this recipe doesn't call for it, you might try it (start out with just a tad to be sure) to see how you like it!
