Ingredients Convert to Imperial

  • 2 cup broccoli crowns (separate florets and slice stems 1/4 inch)
  • 1/3 kg lean beef cut for stir-fry
  • 3 Tbsp water
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 Tbsp minced unpeeled fresh ginger
  • 3/4 cup low-sodium stir-fry sauce
  • 1 red pepper, cut in 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup shiitake mushrooms, stemmed
  • 1/2 cup snow peas, trimmed

Directions:

Rinse broccoli. Microwave, covered, on high for 3 minutes; drain.

Place beef in a small bowl. Pour in water 1 tablespoon at a time, working in with hands until water is absorbed into beef. Sprinkle cornstarch over beef and work in with hands to coat all pieces.

Heat nonstick wok or skillet on high. When hot, pour 1 tablespoon oil down sides of pan. Add ginger and beef; stir-fry until beef just browns. Add sauce and toss to coat; remove beef from pan. Add remaining oil.

Add broccoli to pan along with peppers, mushrooms and snow peas. Stir-fry 2 minutes. Return beef with sauce to pan; toss to heat through, about 30 seconds.
