This Beef with Broccoli has tender, savory strips of thinly sliced beef with juicy, flavorful bites of tender-crisp broccoli. It's an easy, Chinese-food stir-fry take-out classic, except this version is way better and healthier too!

Pinch offreshly ground black pepper
1/2poundbeef tenderloin or sirloin steak, thinly sliced
1 1/2tablespoonspeanut oil
3garlic cloves, minced
2headsbroccoli, cut into florets
Put all the brown sauce ingredients into a small jar with a tight seal. Shut the lid tightly and shake to combine. Set aside.
Combine the cornstarch, soy sauce, freshly ground black pepper, and beef in a medium-size bowl and stir to coat the meat. Allow to marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes.
Add the peanut oil to your wok and heat over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add the beef and stir-fry 3-5 minutes, just until the meat is no longer pink. Remove the meat from the wok and set aside.
Add the garlic to the wok and stir-fry just for a few seconds, then add in the broccoli and water. Stir-fry until the water has evaporated and the broccoli is tender-crisp.
Return the beef to the wok and add the brown sauce to the beef and broccoli. Toss and stir another 2 minutes, until the sauce has thickened just a bit, then remove from the heat and transfer the prepared beef with broccoli to a serving dish. Serve with rice.
