Serves: 4


  • ½ lb. flank steak
  • 1½ lbs. broccoli
  • 2 tsp. sherry
  • ⅛ tsp. ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp. soy sauce
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. sugar
  • ¾ cup water
  • ¼ cup oil
  • 2 tsp. cornstarch


  • Place steak in freezer for a few minutes before preparing this recipe to make slicing it easier. Cut almost-frozen meat across grain into thin slices. Set aside. In a small bowl, combine sherry, pepper, soy sauce, salt, sugar, and ½ cup water.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large, heavy skillet or wok. Add broccoli. Cover skillet and shake. Cook for 2 minutes or until broccoli is crisp-tender. Place broccoli on hot platter.
  • Place remaining 2 tablespoons oil in hot skillet. Add sliced meat. Brown quickly on both sides. Pour in soy sauce mixture. Cover and cook 2 minutes.
  • Dissolve cornstarch in remaining ¼ cup water, making sure mixture is smooth. Gradually add to skillet mixture, stirring constantly. Mixture will begin to thicken.
  • Add broccoli back to skillet, stirring to combine all ingredients well. Make sure it is heated through. Serve immediately.
