Chinese Beef and Broccoli
Beef and broccoli with a salty, sweet, sticky sauce - the best way to eat your vegetables!
(I like sunflower oil)
(about 4 cloves)
sirloin or bottom round steak
sliced into thin strips
fresh broccoli florets
(2 Tablespoons + 2 teaspoons)
In a medium sized bowl, mix together soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic powder and cornstarch until all the cornstarch is dissolved.
Add in chicken broth and mix well. Set aside.
Heat oil over high heat in a large, deep pan or a wok.
Add onions to the wok and cook until beginning to turn translucent, about 2-3 minutes.
Add in the minced garlic and beef and stir-fry until beef is brown, about another 2-3 minutes.
Add broccoli and sticky sauce to the pan, cover, and cook for about 5-7 minutes or until broccoli is softened and sauce is thickened.
Serve with white rice - this makes a good amount of sauce so you'll have plenty to flavor up your rice!
