Return to Recipe Main Page

1 pound beef steak sliced (flank steak is best) 1/4 teaspoon M.S.G.
4 tablespoons soy sauce 1 slice ginger root or 1/4 cup sliced onion
1 tablespoon corn starch 5 tablespoons cooking oil
1 tablespoon dry sherry 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar 1/2 bunch fresh broccoli

1)  Cut the beef across the grain in thin 1/4" thick slices about 2" long.

2)  Mix sliced beef with soy sauce, corn starch, sherry, sugar, M.S.G. and set aside.

3)  Cut the broccoli into flowerets about 2" long, peel the stalk and slice into 2" lengths, less than 1/2" thick.

Pour 2 tablespoons oil into a hot skillet over high heat.  Add salt and broccoli.  Stir and turn constantly until broccoli is dark green -- not over 2 minutes.  Remove from skillet and spread out on a plate.

Put remaining 3 tablespoons oil in same skillet, still over high heat.  Add ginger or onion slices.  Stir in beef mixture and keep turning constantly until almost done -- less than 2 minutes.  Add cooked broccoli to the beef and mix thoroughly.  Serve immediately.
