Beef with Broccoli

1 pound lean beef, cut into thin strips
4 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp salt
1 pound fresh broccoli, cut into small pieces
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 cup water
2 TB soy sauce
2 tsp oil
2 TB oil

Slice the beef into thin strips. Combine the soy sauce, cornstarch, 2 teaspoons of oil and salt in a bowl. Add the beef and toss well to coat. Set the beef mixture aside to marinate. In a large skillet, heat the ginger and 1 1/2 TB of oil on high heat. Add the broccoli and stir fry for 5 minutes. Remove the broccoli from the pan and set aside. Add the remaining 1/2 TB of oil to the pan. Stir fry the beef mixture for about 5 minutes or until it is well browned. Return the broccoli to the pan and add the water. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly.

  1. I tried this the other night, and it was good. I also liked it with the fried rice-- they make a nice balance of flavors.

  2. I loved this recipe but thought it a little salty for my taste. Next time I will omit the salt.
