Beef Marinade:
4 tsp. soy sauce
1/4 tsp. sugar
3/4 lb. flank steak or boneless sirloin, cut in 1/4"
thick slices

1 tbs. cornstarch
1 tbs. soy sauce
1 tbs. dry sherry
1/4 c. chicken or beef broth
1 tsp. sugar
2 tsp. sesame oil

2 tbs. vegetable oil
1 tbs. minced fresh ginger
1 tbs. minced garlic
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
1 lb. broccoli, cut into flowerets

In small bowl stir together soy sauce and sugar, add the beef and let it marinate for 30 minutes.

Make the sauce while the beef is marinating. In a bowl dissolve the cornstarch in the soy sauce and stir in the sherry broth, sugar and sesame oil.

Heat a wok or large skillet over high heat until hot. Add 1 tbs. vegetable oil to the wok and heat until it just begins to smoke. Stir fry the beef in oil for 1 minute or until it is no longer pink and transfer it to plate. Add remaining 1 tbs. oil to wok and stir fry the ginger, garlic and red pepper for 30 seconds. Add the broccoli and stir fry for 1 minute. Add 1/3 c. water and steam the broccoli covered for 1 - 2 minutes or until crisp tender. Stir the sauce, add it to the wok with the beef and any juices that have accumulated on plate. Cook the mixture, stirring for 2 minutes or until sauce is thickened and the beef is heated through. Serve with rice.
