Beef & Broccoli

This morning I was searching Pinterest for a new recipe for dinner and I found this recipe for beef & broccoli.  It looked easy enough so I headed to the grocery store and picked up a flank steak and some ginger.  On nights when I have to work it is easiest for me to do the prep work in the afternoon and then take a nap and cook just in time for Eric to get home from work.  So I went ahead and sliced and seasoned the steak, as well as cut up the broccoli, onion, ginger, and garlic in advance which really cut down on the time to make this meal tonight.  This recipe is actually a clean eating recipe for anyone that does clean eating and is a healthy meal in general.  As always, I made a few small changes from the original recipe and here is my version.

1 T olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp ginger, grated
1 small yellow onion, sliced thinly
2 small heads of broccoli, cut into florets
1 1b flank or skirt steak
Juice of one lime
1/2 tsp sesame oil
2 tsp low sodium soy sauce
2 tsp cornstarch
3/4 C water, divided

First prepare the steak by slicing it thinly.  Season with salt & pepper.
Heat wok to medium heat and add olive oil and steak. Cook for 6-8 minutes, stirring as needed.  Remove meat from pan and keep warm
Add garlic and ginger to the pan.  Cook for a minute or so until garlic is golden.
Add onion, broccoli, 1/4 C water, sesame oil, and soy sauce and cook 6-8 minutes until broccoli is bright green in color.
Add beef back into pan and season with additional soy sauce if desired.  
Mix 1/2 C water and corn starch then add to the pan.  Bring to a boil.
Add lime juice.
Serve over brown rice (with hot sauce if desired).
