Beef & Broccoli Stir-Fry

Beef and Broccoli is my favorite Chinese dish. This is healthy, delicious, and Will claims he's never had any take-out better. I agree - it's perfect! I also have a Crock Pot Beef and Broccoli recipe, and the only difference is the beef stays in the thin strips in this one. In the crock pot it kind of shreds a little, still delicious of course. Perfect for school days when there isn't much time. Oh! I also doubled the sauce, because I like it saucy!

1 lb boneless round steak or sirloin steak, sliced thin (I used flank)
2 tbsp cornstarch
2 tbsp water
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tbsp vegetable oil, divided (I used olive oil spray instead)
4 c broccoli florets
1 small onion, diced

1/3 c lite soy sauce
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp cornstarch
2 tbsp water
1 tsp ground ginger

2 c cooked rice (optional)

In a bowl, combine 2 tbsp cornstarch, 2 tbsp water and garlic powder until mixed. Stir the sliced beef into the mixture. In a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat, stir-fry beef in 1 tbsp oil (or olive oil spray) until the beef reaches desired color. Mine was really thin, it only took 2-3 minutes. Remove beef from the wok into a bowl.

Stir-fry the broccoli and onion in 1 tbsp oil (or spray) for 4-5 minutes. Return the beef to the pan with the vegetables. Combine soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger, 1 tbsp cornstarch, and water into a small bowl and stir until smooth. Add to the pan and cook and stir for 2 minutes.
