Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry

Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry
From: Dolores Reborn

1 tbs vegetable oil
1 lb round steak or sirloin steak, sliced very thin
1 tbs corn starch
2 tbs soy sauce
1 inch fresh ginger, peeled and minced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 carrot, julienned
1/4 onion, thinly sliced
1 lg pkg frozen broccoli florets, thawed (you can use fresh, but the cooking time will be different)
1/2 c beef stock

Marinade the steak in the cornstarch, soy sauce, ginger and garlic for a few minutes while you prepare the veggies and put on some rice to cook. Stir-fry meat in two batches and remove to a plate. Stir-fry carrots and onions for a minute or two, then add in broccoli. Keep stirring until broccoli is almost done to your taste, then add in the meat. Add in the stock for the sauce. The cornstarch on the meat should thicken the sauce. Add a little more stock, or a little slurry of corn starch to get the thickness of the sauce right. Serve with steamed rice. Or make fried rice!
