Beef and Broccoli

I absolutely love the combination of beef and broccoli all wrapped up in a wonderful sauce. I've made a similar recipe in the past but this time I used a little more meat and had to adjust the recipe accordingly. Try this one once and you'll be hooked, I promise. :)

What you'll need
1 to 1 1/2 lbs of either flank steak or very thin cut of beef cut into strips
3-4 c. broccoli florets
3 1/2 tsp. cornstarch
3 Tbsp. water
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp. ginger
1 small onion sliced
1/2 c. low-sodium soy sauce
2 1/2 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 Tbsp. canola oil (or vegetable oil)
2 tsp. sesame oil
Cooked rice

Combine combine, water, cornstarch and garlic powder in a medium-sized bowl. Whisk until smooth. Add meat strips and toss to coat.
In a large skillet or wok, heat canola oil and sesame oil. Add meat to hot oil and cook until done. Remove meat from pan. Stir in broccoli and onion (add a little more sesame oil if necessary).
Meanwhile, combine soy sauce, brown sugar and ginger in bowl. 
Return meat to pan and pour soy sauce mixture over meat and broccoli. Bring to boiling then reduce heat. Cook and stir.
Serve over rice.
