Comments: Make sure you have all ingredients ready to add because the cooking moves along very quickly! It's best to start rice before you start cooking the beef and broccoli everything should be finished at approx. the same time.


3 Tbsp. oyster sauce
1 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
1 Tbsp. dry sherry
1 Tbsp water
2 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. cornstarch
1 pound flank steak (I buy a package of ready-cut beef stir-fry)
1 Tbsp cornstarch
2 Tbsp water
1 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
1 Tbsp vegetable oil (divided)
1/3 cup diagonally sliced green onions
1 Tbsp peeled and minced gingerroot
6 cups broccoli florets (@ a pound)
1/4 water


  1. Combine first 6 ingredients; stir until well blended, and set aside.
  2. Trim fat from steak. Cut steak diagonally across the grain into 1" thick slices. Cut slices into thin strips. (much quicker to use pre-cut beef). Combine steak, 1 Tbsp cornstarch, 2 Tbsp water, 1 Tbsp soy sauce and 2 tsp. sugar in a medium bowl; stir until well blended. Cover and marinate in refrigerator for 15 minutes.
  3. Heat 2 tsp. oil in a wok or non-stick skillet over high heat. Add steak mixture; stir-fry 2 minutes. Remove steak from pan; set aside. Add remaining 1 tsp. oil, green onions, and gingerroot; stir-fry over medium-high heat for 30 seconds. Stir in broccoli and 1/4 cup water; cover and cook 3 minutes. Return steak to pan, and stir in oyster sauce mixture; stir-fry 2 minutes or until thick and bubbly. Serve over rice.
