Beef and Broccoli

When we go out for Chinese food, one of my daughters always orders Beef and Broccoli, so I tried to duplicate the recipe for her at home.  I wanted a more savory than sweet version, so I used this recipe for inspiration and altered it to our taste.

Beef and Broccoli
1 pound flank steak or boneless round steak, sliced thinly across the grain
1 pound broccoli florets
2 tablespoons oil

For marinade:
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon  rice wine or sherry
1 teaspoon cornstarch
2 garlic cloves, minced

For stir-fry sauce:
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons oyster sauce
2 teaspoons rice wine or sherry
2 teaspoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 garlic clove, minced

Stir together the marinade ingredients and marinate beef for at least 15 minutes, or up to 8 hours. Stir together stir-fry sauce ingredients in bowl.
In saute pan, bring 1 inch of water to boil, add broccoli, cover and cook 3 minutes until bright green. Drain the broccoli and dry out saute pan.
Put saute pan back onto medium high heat and add 1 tablespoon of oil. Add beef and cook for 1 minute per side.  Cook the meat in batches so that the slices do not touch one another while cooking.
When all the meat is cooked, add steamed broccoli to pan and pour stir fry sauce over the meat and broccoli until warmed through. Serve with rice~ Enjoy!
