My husband loved this and would always order it when we had takeout.
I had to figure out how to make it.
I found the recipe on Pinterest and tweaked it to my liking.
One very large sliced onion
Two cups broccoli
One tablespoon oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
One pound of very thin sliced lean beef
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons sesame oil
3/4 cup corn starch
One heaping teaspoon grated fresh ginger
4 cloves minced garlic
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup chicken stock
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes or one Thai chili pepper, leave it whole
One tablespoon brown sugar
Two tablespoon corn starch mixed with 1/2 cup chicken stock
I used the rest of the cornstarch from the beef.
Mix the beef, sesame oil and 2 tablespoons soy sauce together.
Let this marinate at least 30 minutes.
I do this a day ahead of time so the meal really comes together quickly.
Heat a couple of tablespoons of oil in a non stick pan.
The pan has to be hot because the onions are going to be seared for only a couple of minutes.
They should be slightly charred and still crunchy
Add the broccoli and stir fry a minute
Add the salt
Put in a microwavable dish
Put the cornstarch in the beef and shake it till everything is coated well.
Shake off any excess corn starch
Heat a couple of tablespoons of oil in the same pan
Place the pieces of meat in the hot pan.
Do not overcrowd and do not touch until a crust forms on the bottom then turn and brown the other side.
I needed to cook the meat in several batches
Keep the meat in a dish and try not to eat too much before it is done.
Add a couple of tablespoons of oil to the pan and cook the garlic and ginger till you can smell the delicious combination, only a minute.
Add the soy sauce, chicken broth, red pepper and brown sugar
Bring to a boil than lower the heat.
Add the corn starch and broth mixture and stir till the sauce just thickens a little
Add the beef to reheat the meat
Place the onions and broccoli in the microwave to heat it .
I like my food HOT.
Serve the meat over the crunchy seared onions and broccoli.
Garnish with scallions
Plain boiled white rice is a must.
