Other Ingredients
  1. Slice the beef into thin 1/8 inch slices. Cut each slice into 2 inch length pieces. Pour the cut beef in a gallon size resealable plastic bag.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the marinade ingredients together using a whisk. Pour the mixture in the bag with the beef. Be sure to coat and massage the liquid directly onto the beef. Marinate for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator.
  3. Right before making the beef and broccoli add the sauce ingredients into a small bowl and whisk until well incorporated and set aside.
  4. In another small bowl, add garlic, ginger, red pepper flakes and 1 teaspoon olive oil. Set aside.
  5. In a large, non-stick skillet, heat 2 teaspoons olive oil over high heat. Working in single layer batches, add beef to the hot skillet. Cook 3-4 minutes, turning 2-3 times until just cooked. You do not want to overcook the meat. Transfer to a large platter and cover. Cook the remaining beef strips and when cooked, set aside.
  6. In the same skillet over medium-high heat, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Once hot, add the broccoli and sauté for 30 seconds.
  7. Add beef broth, cover pan with a lid, and turn the heat to medium. Continue to steam broccoli for 2-3 minutes or until just lightly fork tender.
  8. Remove the lid and add the garlic and ginger mixture to the skillet, stirring to coat the broccoli pieces.
  9. Add the beef back into the skillet and toss to combine.
  10. Whisk the prepared sauce one last time, then add to the beef and broccoli mixture in the skillet.
  11. Continue to cook, stirring constantly, until the sauce has thickened, and the beef is cooked through. This will take about 2-3 minutes.
  12. Transfer to a large serving platter and sprinkle with the green onions (optional).
