chinese beef and broccoli

Got that Chinese food craving? This doesn't have the yummy red dye I crave there but it'll do...

1 pound boneless sirloin or round steak, cut into thin two-inch strips
1 pound broccoli, cut into pieces and steamed until barely tender
1 pat butter or approved oil
Dash pepper
6 cloves garlic, pressed or 1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp pdrd ginger
1 cup mushrooms, sliced (optional)
1 teaspoon cornstarch or arrowroot
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1/4 cup water

Start cooking your rice or noodles

While prepping the beef, steam the broccoli.
In a skillet or wok, heat 1 tablespoon butter or oil. Add beef and a dash of pepper, stir-frying until browned. Remove beef and keep warm. Next add garlic, ginger, and mushrooms. Stir-fry these for about 2 minutes. Add back the beef, and add the steamed broccoli.

In a separate cup, mix together cornstarch or arrowroot, soy sauce and cold water, mixing until lumpless. Stir cornstarch mixture into skillet; cook and stir about 30 seconds or until thickened. Serve and enjoy!

Serve over rice or noodles.
