Broccoli Beef

1/4 cup flour
1 10.5 oz can beef broth
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 lb round steak, cut into strips
1/8 tsp ground ginger
3 cups chopped broccoli

  1. Mix flour, broth, sugar and soy sauce in a small bowl until sugar and flour dissolve.
  2. Cook steak in wok or large skillet until browned. Add broth mixture and the rest of the ingredients. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Cook until sauce thickens.

I’ve done this recipe with a variety of vegetables. Zucchini works well, as does asparagus.
