  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 pound boneless beef sirloin steak or beef top round steak, 3/4-inch thick (about 1 steak), cut into very thin strips

  • Tips

    • Helper: To make slicing easier, freeze the beef for 1 hour before slicing.
    • Easy Substitution: For Ginger-Beef & Broccoli Stir-Fry: You may substitute broccoli florets for the vegetables in this recipe.
  • Step 1

    Stir the cornstarch, broth and soy sauce in a medium bowl until the mixture is smooth.

  • Step 2

    Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the beef and cook until it's well browned, stirring often. Remove the beef from the skillet. Pour off any fat.

  • Step 3

    Reduce the heat to medium and add the remaining oil. Add the vegetables, ginger and garlic powder and cook until the vegetables are tender-crisp, stirring often.

  • Step 4

    Stir the cornstarch mixture in the skillet. Cook and stir until the mixture boils and thickens. Return the beef to the skillet and cook and stir until it's cooked through. Serve the beef mixture over the rice.

    Few slight changes. I added cashews to the vegie frying part, used a good chunk of shredded ginger instead of powdered, and pre fried the mushrooms a bit. A also added just a few drops of sriracha cuz hubby likes it to bike back a bit. WELL OH MY!!!! soooooooo good!!! And I am not a great cook!🤷‍♀️ Everyone should try this!!!! For a vegitarian option tofu would work amazeballs in this!❤

    I can recommend this one. It's a staple in my house since I'm lactose intolerant.
