Cuisine: Asian

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes

Total duration: 20 minutes

Servings: 4


  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch (Split)
  • 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 3 packed tablespoons brown sugar
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 pound sirloin steak, flank steak, or your favorite steak, cut into thin 1-inch pieces (I used sirloin steak)
  • 4 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 small onion, sliced

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Mix 2 tablespoons of cornstarch and 3 tablespoons of water in a bowl. In another bowl, combine 1 tablespoon cornstarch, soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic and ginger.


  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the beef (don’t crowd the pan) and brown on both sides. (I made this in two batches.) Remove to a plate.
