Beef and broccoli

Beef and Broccoli

Last night I made some beef and broccoli that was WAY BETTER than our local Chinese take out's.

1# cubed or sliced beef (I used some cheap stew meat)
4 ounces beef broth
3 Tablespoons soy sauce
1 bag frozen broccoli florets
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon ground ginger (or fresh minced)
2 teaspoons minced garlic (or 1 teaspoon garlic powder)
2 teaspoons sugar (or Splenda)
1-2 tablespoons oil

Brown the beef in the oil, add the garlic unless you're using the garlic powder. Add the broth, ginger, (garlic powder), sugar or sweetener, and soy sauce and cover, cooking on medium until tender. I used some very cheap (and tough) stew meat, simmered for 30 minutes, and it turned out very tender. If you're using some tender meat it might only take you 5 minutes and leave the lid OFF so the sauce gets thick.

Keep an eye on it and make sure the pan doesn't boil dry. Add a little broth or water as needed. It does taste better if the sauce gets nice and thick and the meat starts to brown more.

Mix the cornstarch and water and stir into the pan. Place the broccoli florets in the pan, cover and simmer on medium low for 5 - 10 minutes depending on the size of your florets. If they're small - check after 5 minutes. If they're large and have broccoli stems mixed in - cook closer to 10 minutes.

You can serve over rice or lo mein (spaghetti boiled with oil and soy sauce), or just right on the plate.
