Beef and Broccoli Stir-fry

Tonight I made a delicious stir-fry.  I have never had much luck when it comes to making stir-fries and this one was easy.  You can't mess it up.  It had so much flavor and and meat came out perfect.  It is easy to overcook the meat, but I took it out just a little under what I like and it ended up perfect!!  The Hubby was digging in before I set his plate on the table.  Right from the start, the kitchen smelt wonderful.  This is a must try!


3 T cornstarch
1/2 c water, plus
2 T water
1/2 t garlic powder (I didn't have any so I chopped up 1 garlic)
1 lb boneless round steak cut into 3 inch strips
2 T vegetable oil
4 c broccoli florets (I used frozen)
1 small onion, diced
1/3 c soy sauce
2 T brown sugar
1 t ground ginger
hot cooked rice


In a bowl, comvne2 T cornstarch, 2 T water and garlic powder until smooth.  Toss in the sliced steak to coat. 
In a large skillet or wok over med high heat, stir-fry beef in 1 T oil until beef is at desired doneness.  Remove from heat.
Stir-fry broccoli and onion in remaining oil for 4-5 minutes.  Return beef to skillet.
Combine soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger, and remaining cornstarch and water until smooth.  Add to pan and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. 

Serve with rice.
