Beef Broccoli Stir Fry

Serves 4

2 1/2 Tbsp cornstarch
1/4 tsp table salt
2 tsp canola oil
1 c reduced-sodium chicken broth
5 c broccoli
1 Tbsp ginger root
2 tsp minced garlic
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 c low-sodium soy sauce
1/2 c water
7 1/4 oz lean sirloin beef

1. On a plate, combine 2 tablespoons cornstarch and salt; add beef and toss to coat.
Heat oil in a large nonstick wok or large deep skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef and stir-fry until lightly browned, about 4 minutes; transfer to a bowl with a slotted spoon.

2. Add 1/2 cup broth to same pan; stir to loosen any bits on food on bottom of pan. Add broccoli; cover and cook, tossing occasionally and sprinkling with a tablespoon water if needed, until broccoli is almost crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Uncover pan and add ginger, garlic and red pepper flakes; stir-fry until fragrant, about 1 minute.

3. In a cup, stir together soy sauce, remaining 1/2 cup broth, remaining 1/2 tablespoon cornstarch and water until blended; stir into pan. Reduce heat to medium-low and bring to a simmer; simmer until slightly thickened, about 1 minute.
Return beef and accumulated juices to pan; toss to coat. Serve. Yields about 1 1/4 cups per serving.
