- 1 lb flank steak, sliced into thin strips
- 2 heads of broccoli, chopped into florets
- 4 cloves of garlic, minced
- 2 tbsp of ginger, grated
- 2 tbsp of soy sauce
- 2 tbsp of cornstarch
- 2 tbsp of oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Begin by preparing the ingredients. Slice the flank steak into thin strips, chop the broccoli into florets, mince the garlic, and grate the ginger.
- In a small bowl, mix together the soy sauce and cornstarch until well combined. This will be used as a marinade for the beef.
- Add the beef strips to the marinade and mix well. Let it sit for at least 10 minutes to allow the beef to absorb the flavor.
- In a large pan or wok, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the minced garlic and grated ginger to the pan. Cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
- Add the beef strips to the pan, making sure to spread them out evenly so they cook evenly. Cook the beef for 2-3 minutes on each side until it is browned and cooked through. Remove the beef from the pan and set aside.
- In the same pan, add the broccoli florets and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes until they are tender and slightly browned.
- Return the beef to the pan and mix with the broccoli. Stir-fry for another minute to allow the flavors to meld together.
- Season the beef and broccoli stir-fry with salt and pepper to taste. Serve hot over a bed of rice or noodles.
