Broccoli & Beef Stir-Fry

So, I went outside to do chores in the rain and I froze my butt off!  I came in the house, and got my pajamas on and realized I was "starving!"  Of course, I grabbed some tenderloin steaks out of the freezer earlier, but I had NO CLUE what to do with them!  So, I started looking thru my fridges... Yes, that was plural.  FridgES!  I have two in my kitchen! :)  Anyhow, I had a head of broccoli.  LIGHTBULB (said in a Russian accent... ya know.... Despicable Me;) ) ???!?  How about some stir-fry?  Sounded yummy to me!  So this is what I came up with!  I think it turned out just right!

Broccoli & Beef Stir-Fry
From Cupboard to Cupboard
printable recipe
1/2 pound tenderloin (or any tender cut) steak
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp minced ginger (I use ground ginger that I buy in a jar, but feel free to use fresh ginger if you have it!)
1 garlic clove, minced
2 cups (or whatever you have :)) fresh broccoli
1 1/4 cups water
4 teaspoons corn starch
3 tablespoons soy sauce

Cut beef across grain into thin slices.  You'll find this is easiest when the meat is partially frozen.  Combine 1 Tbsp cornstarch, 1 Tbsp soy sauce, sugar, ginger and garlic in a small bowl; add meat.  Stir until meat is coated and let stand for 10-15 minutes.  Meanwhile, wash broccoli and remove flowerets from broccoli, cut in half lengthwise. 
Combine water, 4 tsp cornstarch and remaining 3 tablespoons soy sauce; set aside.  Heat 1 tablespoon oil in large skillet over high heat.  Add beef and stir-fry 1 minute; remove.  Heat 2 tablespoons oil in same pan.  Add broccoli and stir-fry for 4 minutes.  Stir in beef and soy sauce mixture.  Cook and stir until mixture boils and thickens.  I served it over white rice!  Makes 2-3 servings (depending on how hungry you )

Happy Cooking!
