Asian Steak and Broccoli

I don't cook with a lot of red meat but every once and a while I find a recipe that looks so good and we have to give it a try. This one is great and seriously took me a whole 20minutes to make. Nice and warm and it hits the spot on a winter night!


2 cups uncooked instant brown rice
1 3/4 cup water
1 cup beef broth
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon oil
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1 lb. boneless beef round or tip steak, thinly sliced
1 small onion, sliced
salt and pepper
1/2 lb (about 2 cups) bit-size broccoli pieces

1. Cook rice in water as directed on package. Meanwhile, in a small bowl mix broth, cornstarch, soy sauce and brown sugar. Stir until cornstarch is dissolved.
2. IN a nonstick skilled, heat oil over medium high heat. Add beef and onion. Sprinkle with ginger, salt and pepper. Cook for 2-4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is brown. Remove beef mixture from skillet; cover to keep warm.
3.Add broth mixture and broccoli to skillet. Heat to boiling, Reduce heat. Cook 5 to 10 minutes or until sauce thickens and broccoli is tender. ( if sauce gets thick to quick, just add a little water). Return beef to skillet. Cook until hot.
4. Serve over brown rice and steamed carrots if you like! Yum! Enjoy!
