Beef and Broccoli Stir-FrySubmitted by: MEGABEAN002
1 lb. flank steak
1 Tbs. cornstarch
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. sugar
1/8 tsp. baking soda
2 Tbs. oyster sauce
2 Tbs. soy sauce
1 tsp. peanut oil
1 tsp. cornstarch
1/2 tsp. sugar
1/8 tsp. freshly ground pepper
2 cups small broccoli florets
3 Tbs. peanut oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 small yellow onion, cut into 1-inch dice
Meanwhile, make the sauce: In a bowl, combine the oyster sauce, dark and light soy sauces, peanut oil, cornstarch, sugar, white pepper and 2 Tbs. water. Set aside.
Bring a saucepan three-fourths full of water to a boil over high heat. Add the broccoli florets and blanch until just tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain, rinse under running cold water until cool and drain again. Set aside.
Remove the beef from the bowl and pat dry with paper towels. In a wok or large, deep sautÃ© pan over high heat, warm 2 Tbs. of the peanut oil until very hot. Add the beef and stir-fry until it just turns opaque, 3 to 4 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, quickly transfer the beef to a sieve placed over a bowl to drain.
Wipe out the pan with paper towels and reheat over high heat. Add the remaining 1 Tbs. oil and heat until very hot. Add the onion and stir-fry until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic to the onion, and stir-fry until golden, about 30 seconds more.
Add the sauce to the pan, stir and bring to a boil. Immediately add the beef and broccoli and stir-fry until the sauce thickens and the beef is heated through, about 3 minutes. Transfer the beef and broccoli to a warmed bowl and serve.
