Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry

Stir-Fry's make great meals!
Fresh Vegies and meat served on-top of steamed rice or noodles, YUM.
I have been making this recipe for many years. It is really easy to make, you just need to plan on marinading the meat a couple of hours before hand. If I know that I will not have time before hand, I will prepare the meat and marinade in the morning.

Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry

-round steak (1 lb) - cut in thin strips
-4 T. soy sauce
-2 T. cooking sherry
-2 tsp. sugar
-1 tsp. ground ginger
-1 T. cornstarch
-1 lb. fresh broccoli
-2 T. oil
-1/2 medium onion sliced
-2 tsp. garlic salt
-1 tsp. salt
-1 1/4-1 1/2 cups beef broth OR Shirley J Beef Bouillon

1. Cut meat. Put soy sauce, sherry, sugar, ginger, 2 tsp of cornstarch, and sliced meat in a bag or bowl. Let marinate in the refridgerator for 30 min. to 2 hours.

2. Cut up broccoli into small pieces. Put broccoli in a pan of water and steam for only 2 minutes (Broccoli should still be crisp).

3. In a frying pan put onions, garlic salt, meat and cook on high heat until meat is done. Remove from pan.

4. Add the olive oil and cook broccoli on high heat, stirring fast for about 1 minute.

5. Put everything back into the frying pan and add salt and beef broth. Put in a bit more cornstarch if you want the sauce thicker. Cook for about 2 -3 minutes.

6. Serve over steamed rice.
