Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry

½ lb beef strips
½ cup broccoli (blanched)
1 onion bulb and garlic (chopped)
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
1 ½ tablespoon soy sauce
½ cup beef broth/stock
2 tablespoons corn flour
2 tablespoons veg. oil
Crushed pepper to taste
Cooked white rice

Add the beef, 1 tablespoon corn starch and a ½ tablespoon soy sauce to a bowl and mix well. Set aside.

Add oil to a large wok, skillet, or pan with high sides. Add the onions and garlic, then add the beef. Make sure the meat is in a single layer and that the heat is in the highest setting.

Cook the the meat for about a minute on each side till it's brown all over.

Add the blanched broccoli to the meat. (To blanch broccoli, simply add it to boiling water for about a minute. Be careful not to over cook)

In a separate bowl, mix the beef stock, oyster sauce, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, crushed pepper and 1 tablespoon corn starch (see yellow bowl in ingredients picture). Add this mixture to the beef and broccoli and let it simmer for about a minute.

Serve over white rice.

N/B: If you don't eat beef, you can use chicken strips instead. :)
