Broccoli Beef Stir Fry

This family favorite recipe is just as flavorful but uses broth instead of oil to prevent sticking and to create the mildly spicy soy ginger[ sauce.]

Ingredients
  • Sauce:
  • 1 1/4 cups plus about 1/4 cup College Inn® Fat Free & Lower Sodium Beef Broth
  • 5 tsp. cornstarch
  • 2 Tbsp. reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tsp. grated fresh ginger
  • 2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1/8 tsp. dried red pepper flakes
  • Stir Fry:
  • 1 lb. top sirloin beef or flank steak, sliced into thin strips
  • 3 cups broccoli flowerets
  • 1/2 medium onion, sliced into thin strips
  • Hot cooked Asian-style noodles or rice
  • Optional Toppings:
  • Chopped peanuts
  • Sliced green onion
  • Chopped fresh cilantro
Directions
  • For Sauce, combine 1 1/4 cups broth, cornstarch, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and red pepper flakes in a pint-size jar with lid; shake well and set aside.

  • For Stir Fry, heat a dry 12-inch skillet over high heat 1 minute (medium-high if using non-stick). Add sliced meat in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 minutes. Stir once, then continue cooking until liquid evaporates and meat starts to brown on edges and stick to pan, about 3 to 5 minutes, stirring only one or two more times. If pan becomes dry, add broth 1 tablespoon at a time. Meat may still be slightly pink in center.

  • Add broccoli, onion and 2 tablespoons broth. Stir until vegetables are hot, about 3 minutes, adding additional broth 1 tablespoon at a time, as needed, if pan becomes dry.

  • Shake sauce mixture again, checking that cornstarch is fully incorporated, and pour into skillet. Simmer, 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until sauce is thickened and vegetables are desired doneness. Serve over hot rice or noodles with toppings, as desired.
