1 Tbsp

1 tsp
ginger root, grated
1 tsp
sherry or sake (japanese liquor)
1 Tbsp
oil
4 c

OYSTER SAUCE GRAVY

3/4 c
water
1 Tbsp

1/2 tsp

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cut flank steak lengthwise in half, then slice across the grain on a slant into thin strips.
2
Marinate in mixture of soy sauce, cornstarch, ginger, sherry and oil.
3
Use a paring knife to peel the tough outer skin of the broccoli and slice the stems diagonally into 1/4 inch pieces. Cut the florets and break into smaller bite size pieces.
4
Saute the broccoli in a hot skillet with oil. Stir fry for 2 to 3 minutes. Salt to taste. Add a Tbsp. of water, to prevent burning. Do not over cook the broccoli, just barely cook it. Remove from the skillet.
5
Add 1 Tbsp. of oil to the skillet, saute meat over medium-high heat. While the meat is slightly pink in the middle, add the broccoli and oyster sauce gravy, cook until meat is browned.
6
Scrape the bottom of the skillet and keep stir frying to prevent everything from sticking and burning. Cook just until thickened, stirring constantly.
7
Remove from heat, place on an oval platter for serving, add a parsley sprig on top for garnish.

OYSTER SAUCE GRAVY: Combine all the ingredients for the oyster sauce gravy in a saucepan and bring to a boil, add the cornstarch and mix till the gravy thickens. Turn off the heat and salt to taste since some oyster sauces are quite salty.
