• 3/4 Pound lean beef, sliced thinly into bite-sized pieces

Marinade for Beef:
• 1 Egg
• 1/3 Teaspoon salt
• 1 Tablespoon cooking wine
• 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
• 2 Tablespoons water
• 1 1/2 Tablespoons oil

• 1 1/2 Pounds broccoli, flowerets removed, slice diagonal into thin slices
• 1 Cup cooking oil
• 2 1/2 Tablespoon oyster sauce
• 2 Tablespoons light soy sauce
• 3/4 Tablespoon dark soy sauce
• 1 Tablespoon sugar
• a few drops of sesame oil
• 2 cloves garlic, crushed
• 1/2 Cup chicken broth

Slice beef and mix together marinade ingredients. Add marinade to beef and marinate for thirty minutes. Add 1 1/2 tablespoons of oil to beef, mix in thoroughly, and marinate beef for another thirty minutes. Let beef marinate and prepare the vegetables.

Heat wok and add 1 cup of oil. When oil is hot, add beef and stir-fry until it is nearly cooked. Remove beef and set aside on a plate. Drain the wok and wipe clean with a paper towel.

Add 1/2 cup water to wok. Bring the water to a boil and add broccoli. Cover and cook until broccoli is cooked, but still crunchy. Drain the wok.

Heat wok and add oil (about 2 tablespoons). Add the garlic and stir-fry for about 1 minute. Add vegetables and beef and mix together. Make a well in the middle of the wok and add the sauce ingredients. Add cornstarch, stirring to thicken. Mix sauce together with other ingredients. Serves 4.
