Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry

Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon table salt
  • 3/4 pound uncooked lean trimmed sirloin beef, thinly sliced against the grain
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth, divided
  • 5 cups uncooked broccoli, florets
  • 1 tablespoon fresh, minced ginger root
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes, or to taste
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce

Directions

  1. On a plate, combine 2 tablespoons cornstarch and salt; add beef and toss to coat.
  2. Heat oil in a large nonstick wok or large deep skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef and stir-fry until lightly browned and cooked through, about 4 minutes; transfer to a bowl with a slotted spoon.
  3. Add 1/2 cup broth to same pan; stir to loosen any bits on food on bottom of pan. Add broccoli; cover and cook, tossing occasionally and sprinkling with a tablespoon water if needed, until broccoli is almost crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Uncover pan and add ginger, garlic and red pepper flakes; stir-fry until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  4. In a cup, stir together water, soy sauce, remaining 1/2 cup broth and remaining 1/2 tablespoon cornstarch until blended; stir into pan. Reduce heat to medium-low and bring to a simmer; simmer until slightly thickened, about 1 minute.
  5. Return beef and accumulated juices to pan; toss to coat. Serve.
