Beef & Broccoli

Fall Pics-8

Serve over white or brown rice. Serves 4.

Prep Time: 10 minutes + 1 hour for marinade Cook Time: 8 minutes

First, marinate the meat:

 1/2 tsp baking soda
 1 tsp sugar
 1 tbsp cornstarch
 1 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
 1 tbsp water
 2 tbsp vegetable oil
 1 1/2 lbs flank steak, sliced into thin strips

1. Whisk together the baking soda, sugar, cornstarch, soy sauce, water, and vegetable oil in a large bowl. Toss the steak with the marinade to coat. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour, then proceed below.

  •  1 c low-sodium soy sauce (Do NOT use regular. The final product will be way too salty) [When I made this, I only had light soy sauce so I added about 3/4 c. of soy sauce and 1/3 c. water and it turned out great]
  •  4 tbsp brown sugar
  •  8 cloves garlic, minced
  •  4 tbsp flour
  •  2 tbsp sherry
  •  3 tbsp vegetable oil
  •  2 heads broccoli, crowns only

1. In a small bowl, stir together the soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, flour and sherry until smooth. Set aside.
2. In a large wok or saute pan, heat 2 tablespoons of the vegetable oil over high heat until shimmering. Add broccoli and saute 3 minutes, stirring often. Transfer broccoli to a plate.

3. Reduce heat to medium-high. Carefully add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the hot pan. Add the marinated meat and half of the sauce mixture and saute for 3- 4 minutes, stirring often, until the meat is cooked through and no longer pink. Stir in the broccoli and remaining sauce. Saute 1 minute more.
