Beef with Broccoli

Prep Time: 10 minutes + 1 hour for marinade
Cook Time: 8 minutes

First, marinate the meat:
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp sugar
1 TBS cornstarch
1 tsp low-sodium soy sauce
1 TBS water
2 TBS vegetable oil
1- 1/2 lbs flank steak, sliced into thin strips

1. Whisk together the baking soda, sugar, cornstarch, soy sauce, water, and vegetable oil in a large bowl.  Toss the steak with the marinade to coat. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour, then proceed below.

1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce (I used regular)
2 TBS brown sugar
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 TBS flour
1 TBS sherry (I used broth)
3 TBS vegetable oil
2 heads broccoli, crowns only

2.  In a small bowl stir together the soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, flour and broth until smooth. Set aside.

3. In a large wok or saute pan, heat 2 tablespoons of the vegetable oil over high heat until shimmering. Add broccoli and saute 3 minutes, stirring often. Transfer broccoli to a plate.

4. Reduce heat to medium-high. Carefully add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the hot pan.  Add the marinated meat and half of the sauce mixture and saute for 3-4 minutes, stirring often, until the meat is cooked through and no longer pink. Stir in the broccoli and remaining sauce. Saute 1 minute more. Serve.
