Spicy Beef & Broccoli Stir-Fry
1/4 cup light soy sauce
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided (I always end up using a lot more than this!)
1 boneless beef top sirloin steak (1 1/4 pounds), trimmed
3 cups broccoli flowerets
1 medium red bell pepper
1 medium onion --- I think the more the merrier on the onion :)
2 garlic cloves, chopped up (I sometimes use minced garlic from a jar...it saves time)
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 cup beef broth
-In medium bowl, whisk together soy sauce, cornstarch, and 1 tablespoon of the oil.
-Cut steak into strips
-Add beef to soy sauce mixture; toss to coat all the meat. Cover and refrigerate for about 15 or 20 minutes to marinate.
-Cut broccoli into flowerets and onion into thin wedges --Cut bell pepper into thin strips....set all veggies aside.
- Heat oil in a wok or skillet over medium - high heat until hot. add the beef, garlic, and red pepper flakes to skillet / wok.
-Use a wooden spoon to stir fry 3 to 4 minutes until the outside of the meat is no longer pink (do not overcook).
Remove from skillet, keep warm,
-Heat the rest of the oil, let it get hot, then add broccoli, onion and bell pepper: stir-fry 5 to 6 minutes or until vegetables are crisp tender. Return beef to the skillet / wok; add broth. Bring to a boil. Boil 1 minute, stirring gently, until sauce is slightly thickened.
Next eat and enjoy! THIS IS SO YUMMY!!!! It is one of my husbands favorite dishes. I always make a double batch so that we can have leftovers the next day for lunch. I serve ours over noodles!
