  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 2/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoons sesame oil Note 1
  • 3 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 pounds skirt steak sliced thinly against the grain into strips
  • 4 cups fresh broccoli cut into bite size pieces


  • In a small bowl, mix the broth, soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic and ginger.
  • Add the cornstarch and set aside.
  • Heat a large skillet over high heat; add the oil and heat until the oil starts to "shimmer" or looks like it's moving--about 3 minutes.
  • Add the steak and saute to add good color to the meat--about 6 minutes. Remove the meat from the skillet, reduce heat to medium and add the broccoli. Saute until a little less crunchy; maybe 5 minutes.
  • Add the meat back in and pour over the broth mixture.
  • Stir to coat and bring the sauce to a simmer until it thickens slightly and the broccoli is crisp-tender; about 3 minutes.
  • Serve warm over rice.


Note 1: Sesame oil is a strongly flavored oil found in the Asian section of your grocery store. You don't have to use it, but I really think you should. It has a deep rich flavor but keep in mind that it's VERY strong, so go lightly with it if you need to.
