    Ingredients and Preparation

    Ingredients Measures
    Reduced-sodium soy sauce 2 teaspoons + 1 tablespoon
    Sugar ¼ + 1 teaspoon
    Salt 1/8 + 1/8 teaspoon
    Boneless sirloin steak, visible fat trimmed and cut into ¼-inch thin strips ½ pound
    Cornstarch 1 tablespoon
    Water ¼ + ¼ cup
    Ground ginger ¼ teaspoon
    Sesame oil 1 teaspoon
    Canola oil 2 teaspoons
    Garlic clove, minced 1
    Broccoli flowerets 2 cups
    1. Combine 2 teaspoons soy sauce, ¼ teaspoon sugar, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and beef strips in a plastic resealable bag. Toss to coat and let marinate for 20 minutes in the refrigerator.
    2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, dissolve cornstarch in 1 tablespoon soy sauce, then stir in ¼ cup water, sesame oil, ginger, and 1 teaspoon sugar. Set sauce aside.
    3. Heat canola in a large wok or nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and beef to pan and stir-fry 1-2 minutes, until beef is browned, then remove beef with a slotted spoon and set aside.
    4. Add broccoli to pan and stir-fry 1 minute. Then add ¼ cup of water, cover, and steam about 2 minutes, until broccoli is tender-crisp.
    5. Stir sauce, then add sauce and beef to the pan and cook 1-2 minutes, until sauce has thickened and beef is heated through. Remove from heat and serve with rice.
