1 lb. beef round steak
1/4 cup water
4 cloves garlic
2 Tblsp. cooking oil
2 Tblsp. lemon juice
2 Tblsp. soy sauce or tamari
1 1/2 - 2 tsp crushed red pepper (I usually only add 1/2 )
1 1/2 tsp cornstarch
2 tsp. cooking oil
4 cups broccoli cut into 1 inch pieces

Make rice...
Slice the beef very thinly into bite-size strips. In a blender container combine water, garlic, 2 Tblsp cooking oil, lemon juice, soy sauce, crushed red pepper and cornstarch. Cover the blender container and blend till smooth. Set aside.
Heat a wok over high heat. Add 2 tsp cooking oil. Stir fry broccoli 3 - 4 minutes or till crisp tender. I usually tadd a bit of water and put the lid on to steam the broccoli a bit. Remove from wok.
Add more oil if necessary. Add half of the beef strips and stir fry for 2-3 minutes or till brown. Remove beef. Stir fry remaining beef 2 to 3 minutes. Return all beef and broccoli to skillet or wok.
Stir in the cornstarch mixture. Cook and stir till thickened and bubbly. Cover and cook 1 minute more. Serve with rice. See note below...

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I don't think this recipe tastes particularly like Thai food, but it is very good. I usually double the sauce for the same amount of beef, and *lots* of broccoli. This recipe is adapted from the Better Homes and Gardens Hot and Spicy Cooking cookbook.
