{beef + broccoli}
ingredients
1 lb lean beef [top sirloin flank]
3 green onions [cut up 1" long]
15 slices of fresh ginger [cut about a quarter size]

marinade for beef
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp sugar
1 tbsp cornstarch
1 tbsp soysauce
3 tbsp water
2 tbsp vegetable oil

seasoning sauce
2 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp water
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp cornstarch
1/2 tsp sesame oil

next
4 cups oil
1/2 lb broccoli
for broccoli
1/2 tbsp rice wine
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar

directions
slice the beef very thin into 1" squares. mix the beef marinate, all but 2 tbsps oil in a bowl and add beef. marinate for 1/2 hour at least [longer is better]. then add 2 tbsps oil and mix well.
steam the broccoli in a steamer. remove from steamer after broccolli is semi-soft then stir fry brocolli with 2 tbps oil and season with the rice wine, slat, and sugar just for a few minutes. lay broccoli out on a serving plate.

heat 4 cups oil in a fry pan, medium to medium high heat. [i only use a few tablespoons because i didn't want to deep fry it] and fry until it turns a light brown [done].
remove beef and drain off oil from the pan.
add another 2 tbsp oil to fry green onions and ginger for a few minutes. add cooked beef and stir quickly over high heat next add the seasoning sauce. stir until sauce thickens and meat is heated through. pour over broccoli and serve over rice.

**tips: this serves about 4 people just fine, you can double it for guests.

i have a great pie recipe i made up the other day to share soon!

I am excited to try this. Just wondering if it calls for rice wine vinegar? If not, what is rice wine?
