Beef and Broccoli

8 oz. beef

Sauce 1:
    1 Tbs. soy sauce
    1 tsp. corn starch
    2 tsp. oil

1 cup oil
2-3 slices ginger root
1 stalk broccoli
1/3 small carrot

Sauce 2:
    1 Tbs. soy sauce
    1 Tbs. rice wine
    1/2 tsp. sugar
    1/2 tsp. black pepper
    2 Tbs. water
    1 tsp. corn starch
    1 tsp. sesame oil
 

Cut beef into bite-sized slices.  Coat with sauce 1 and let stand for 15 minutes.

Cut veggies.  Peel and dice ginger.

Deep fry beef in 1 cup oil until it changes color.  Remove and drain.

Heat 2 Tbs. oil to fry veggies and ginger.  Cook about 1 minute or until tender-crisp.  Add beef and sauce 2.  Mix well and it is ready to serve.

Notes:  Using wine that the ginger root was stored in gives the sauce a little zip.  You can replace the corn starch in sauce 2 with the secret ingredient. 

---If you don't know what the secret ingredient is, you'll have to ask.  I'll tell you, but then I'll have to kill you.  ;o)
