Beef and Broccoli Stirfry

My hubby may not love stir fries but he does love this one.  It is one of the few recipes that I have made our entire marriage and not tweaked or changed.
After a holiday I love making simple meals like stir fries, with alot of vegetables.  The great thing about them is they go together so quickly, everything is cooked in one pan so you don’t have as much clean up either, and it’s easy to adjust them for everyone’s likes and dislikes.
Sometimes I serve this with peanuts on the side as well for those that want some extra crunch too.  Baked brown rice makes a perfect pair with it as well.

For marinade:
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 tsp grated gingerroot (or 1/2 tsp dried)
2 garlic cloves, minced

2 lbs steak, thinly sliced (I usually use top round or petite sirloin)
1 tsp oil
2 cups thinly sliced carrots
6 cups broccoli florets and stalks, thinly sliced
1/2 cup water
2 T soy sauce
1 tsp Worcestershire
1 tsp ginger powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cornstarch
2 green onions, thinly sliced
sesame seeds for serving

Marinade the beef.  Combine the water, soy sauce, ginger, and garlic in a bag and add beef, coating with marinade.  Marinate in the fridge for at least 4 hours.

Heat oil in a wok or large skillet over medium high heat.  Remove beef from marinade and cook.  Remove from pan and set aside.
Add carrots and broccoli and the 1/2 cup water.  Cover and let steam for 3-5 minutes.  Add the beef back to the pan.
Stir together the soy, worcestershire, ginger, garlic, and cornstarch and mix into pan, coating everything well.
Top with green onions and sesame seeds and serve over rice.
