  • 3 Tablespoons cornstarch, divided
  • 1 pound flank steak, cut into thin 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons packed light brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 4 cups small broccoli florets
  • 1/2 cup sliced white onions

In a large bowl, whisk together 2 tablespoons cornstarch with 3 tablespoons water. Add the beef to the bowl and toss to combine.
In a separate small bowl, whisk together the remaining 1 tablespoon cornstarch with the soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic and ginger. Set the sauce aside. 
Heat a large nonstick sauté pan over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of the vegetable oil and once it is hot, add the beef and cook, stirring constantly until the beef is almost cooked through. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the beef to a plate and set it aside.
Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil to the pan and once it is hot, add the broccoli florets and sliced onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until the broccoli is tender, about 4 minutes. (See Kelly’s Notes.) 
Return the beef to the pan then add the prepared sauce. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until the sauce thickens slightly. Serve with rice or noodles.
