Beef & Broccoli

In my quest to take advantage of the skirt steak that we stocked up on when Publix had it on sale Mr. T found a recipe for Beef & Broccoli online.  This was really easy and super delicious and I will definitely be making it again!

Beef and Broccoli:

3 tablespoons cornstarch, divided
1/2 cup water, plus
2 tablespoons water, divided
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 lb boneless round steak or 1 lb charcoal chuck steak, cut into thin 3-inch strips
2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
4 cups broccoli florets
1 small onion, cut into wedges
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
hot cooked rice


In a bowl, combine 2 tablespoons cornstarch, 2 tablespoons water and garlic powder until smooth.  Add beef and toss.

In a large skillet or wok over medium high heat, stir-fry beef in 1 tablespoon oil until beef reaches desired doneness; remove and keep warm.  Stir-fry broccoli and onion in remaining oil for 4-5 minutes.  Return beef to pan.

Combine soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger, red pepper flakes, remaining cornstarch, and water until smooth; add to the pan.  Cook and stir for 2 minutes.  Serve over rice.
