Ingredients

  • 1 lb thinly sliced steak I buy mine pre-sliced to save time
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup soy or tamari sauce
  • 4 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp minced garlic about 1 clove
  • 1/2 tsp minced fresh ginger
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • 1/2 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 3-4 cups broccoli florets fresh or frozen
  • On cooking day: 3-4 tbsp vegetable or canola oil

Instructions

  • Add sliced steak + cornstarch into gallon-sized freezer bag. Shake bag until all sides of steak pieces are coated. Seal bag, removing air.
  • In a small bowl (or place directly into quart sized freezer bag) combine tamari or soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, sesame seeds, sesame oil and red pepper flakes.

MAKE IT NOW

  • Add 3-4 tbsp vegetable or canola oil to a wok or large skillet and heat on high.
  • Add steak into wok and stir-fry, separating pieces and stirring constantly until the majority of the pieces have some golden or crispy edges on them, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Add broccoli, cook 1-2 minutes until crisp-tender.
  • Add sauce, and cook, stirring constantly for about 1 minute until sauce slightly thickens.
  • Serve.

MAKE IT A FREEZER MEAL

  • Label a new gallon-sized freezer bag. Add to labeled bag the sealed steak with cornstarch bag, sealed sauce bag, and add in broccoli florets on top.
  • Seal bags together and freeze.

QUICK THAW:

  • Thaw steak and sauce packets quickly by running under warm water until you can break the packets up.
  • Or place the whole kit in the fridge first thing in the morning so the meat will be thawed by dinner time.

COOK IN WOK OR LARGE SKILLET:

  • Add 3-4 tbsp vegetable or canola oil over high heat.
  • Pour steak into wok, stir-fry, separating pieces and stirring constantly until the majority of the pieces have some golden or crispy edges on them, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Add broccoli, cook 1-2 minutes until crisp-tender.
  • Add sauce, and cook, stirring constantly for about 1 minute until sauce slightly thickens.
  • Serve.
