Broccoli Beef Stir Fry

I saw this recipe on Mommy's Kitchen
and it looked so good I had to try it. I omitted a few things that i don't typically like and I have to say this was SO very good! I would much prefer to make it myself at home than order in when I can eat like this! Everyone loved it!


Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry

8 oz top sirloin, cut into 1/4-inch-thick strips
6 - Tbsp soy sauce
2 - Tbsp brown sugar
2 - Tbsp sesame oil
1 - Tsp ground cloves
1 - Tbsp minced ginger
2 - cups broccoli florets
1 - Tbsp vegetable oil
3 - Tbsp hoison sauce
2 -tsp cornstarch

Combine first 6 ingredients and refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. Cook broccoli in small pot of boiling, salted water until almost crisp-tender, about 2 minutes; drain. Rinse under cold ice water to stop the cooking process. Heat oil in heavy large skillet over high heat. Using slotted spoon, transfer beef to pan - RESERVING MARINADE. Stir-fry beef until just no longer pink - about 2 minutes. Remove beef from pan and add broccoli. Continue stir-frying until vegetables are just crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Stir cornstarch into reserved marinade. Pour marinade over veggies in pan. At this point I added some hoison sauce then beef and cook until liquid boils and thickens, 2-3 minutes.

Serve over rice.
