Beef and Broccoli

Wanting to use the wok while it’s out, checking on the seasoning job.  It worked pretty well.  I expect it will get better with use.
These are sliced from a flat iron steak and were marinated in sesame oil and chili garlic paste.Set the cooked beef aside and add more oil to the pan.  I added the cut broccoli with some onion, added a splash of water, and covered for four minutes.  Stir it once or twice and add more water, a little at a time as it boils off and steams the veggies.  Add back the beef and let it heat through.
I made a sauce of chicken broth and soy sauce, sesame oil, minced ginger and garlic, a couple of slugs of Chinese cooking wine, a spoonful of chili garlic paste, and enough cornstarch to thicken it when added.
When the beef and veggies are cooked pour the sauce and stir until it thickens.
Serve over rice and garnish with sesame seeds and green onions.Combining my hobbies –  cooking, eating, and watching cooking and eating videos.
