1 tablespoon each, dry sherry, soy sauce and water
1/4 teaspoon each of salt and sugar
2 teaspoons corn starch
Mix together in a medium bowl and then add:
About 1/2-3/4 lb of boneless lean beef (I used a round steak) cut into thin strips. Then stir in 1-1/2 teaspoon of oil.
Let marinate for about 15 minutes
Meanwhile, cut one bunch of broccoli into bite size chunks. Cut an onion into thick strips. Slice a package of mushrooms. Set aside.
Prepare a cooking sauce using 1/2 cup chicken or beef broth. Or water. Add 1 tablespoon each of soy sauce and cornstarch. Stir and set aside.
Heat a wok and then add 1 tablespoon of peanut or vegetable oil. When hot, add one minced/pressed garlic clove and 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh ginger (you can buy that in a jar, or get a fresh ginger root) Stir and then add beef. Stir fry until browned, remove from wok to a bowl. Add another tablespoon of oil and then stir fry the broccoli for a couple of minutes. Then add the onions and mushrooms. Continue to stir fry for a few minutes. Add the beef back into the pan and heat through. Stir the cooking sauce and add to the wok. Stir until bubbly, cook for one minute. Serve with rice.
