  • 8 oz lean sirloin steak sliced thinly (best if partially frozen)
  • 2 cups fresh broccoli florets
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 2 tbsp oil

For the Marinade:

  • 2 tbsp white wine or rice wine
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda

For Stir Fry Sauce:

  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp dry sherry or dry white wine
  • 1 slice ginger crushed
  • 1/8 tsp white pepper
  • 1/2 tsp dark sesame oil
  • 1 tsp ketchup
  • 1/2 cup water

For Thickener:

  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch


  • Mix tenderizing marinade. Pour in a zipper freezer bag and add the sliced sirloin. Seal bag and mush the beef around in the marinade so it's coating all the meat. Place bag in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Meanwhile, mix the stir fry sauce ingredients in a small dish and set aside. Mix the thickener ingredients in another small dish and set aside.
  • Remove meat from the bag, draining off marinade.
  • Heat a large wok or a large deep skillet over high heat. Add the oil. When oil begins to shimmer, add the garlic and the drained meat. Stir fry, stirring constantly, until meat is no longer pink. Add broccoli and stir fry for about 1 minute or until broccoli is bright green in color.
  • Add the stir fry sauce and stir in well. Bring sauce to a boil. Stir the thickener until no lumps are present and add to meat/broccoli mixture, stirring constantly until sauce begins to bubble. Cook for 1 minute. Serve immediately over rice.
