Stir-Fry Broccoli and Beef Tenderloin

I made this dish last week and it was delicious. Both my husband and son raved about it and I will definitely be making this again and again. Maybe next time I will try this with chicken or shrimp. I think both of them would be fine. I found this recipe at My Kitchen Snippets. It's another great food blog that I check all the time.

1/2 pound of beef tenderloin or flank steak, sliced thinly into bite-sized pieces

1 pound of broccoli-cut small

1/2 red pepper cut into bite size pieces (I used a whole pepper)

1/2 yellow pepper cut into bite size pieces (I used a whole green pepper)

1 small onion - cut into bite size pieces

1 clove of garlic-chopped

1 tbsp of chopped ginger (I used 1/2 tsp ground ginger)

Marinade for beef:

2 tbsp soy sauce

1 tbsp of cooking wine (I used semi sweet red wine)

1 tbsp cornstarch

For Sauce:

2 tbsp oyster sauce

2 tbsp light soy sauce

1 tsp sugar

1/2 tsp of pepper

1 cup chicken stock (more or less depending on how much sauce you like)

1 tsp cornstarch

Marinade sliced beef for thirty minutes. Mix all the sauce ingredients and set aside.

Heat pan with about 2 tbsp olive oil. When oil is hot, add beef and stir-fry until it is nearly cooked. Remove beef and set aside. In the same sauce pan, heat up 1 tbsp olive oil, stir-fry garlic, ginger and onions until fragrant and lightly brown. Add in the peppers and broccoli and stir fry for a minute. Add in the sauce and bring it up to a boil. Cook until the broccoli and peppers are cooked but still slightly crunchy. Lastly, add in the beef, stir fry for a few seconds or until sauce and everything is well mixed. Check seasoning. Serve with rice.
