Beef and Broccoli

1/4 cup all-purpose flour (or 2 T corn starch)
1 (10.5 ounce) can beef broth
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 pound boneless round steak, cut into thin sliced pieces
1/4 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger root (or 1 t new dried ginger)**
1 clove garlic, minced
4 cups chopped fresh broccoli

In a small bowl, combine flour, broth, sugar, and soy sauce. Stir until sugar and flour are dissolved.

In a large skillet or wok over high heat, cook and stir beef 2 to 4 minutes, or until browned. Stir in broth mixture, ginger, garlic, and broccoli. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat. Simmer 5 to 10 minutes, or until sauce thickens and broccoli is tender.

** Dried ginger looses it's flavor quickly. If you have older ginger on hand, you can double or triple the amount to get the flavor desired. You're better off to toss it and get new.

White sugar $.05 (Aldi)
Soy sauce $.35 (Meijer)
