My husband (Jeff) loves to order this dish when we go out for a Chinese dinner. I happened to have the ingredients on hand and came up with the following recipe!
12 oz. top sirloin with some even marbling of fat through the meat
1 1/2 cups broccoli crowns
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 tbsp. rice wine vinegar
1 tbsp. cornstarch
1 egg egg white only
2 pinches salt
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tbsp. brown sugar
2 tbsp. cornstarch
1 tsp lime juice
3-4 cloves garlic
1″ x 1 1/4″ fresh ginger, peeled then grated
2 pinches red pepper flakes
