Beef
1 1/4
lb beef flank steak, cut into thin slices
2
tablespoons soy sauce
3
cloves garlic, finely chopped
1
tablespoon grated gingerroot, if desired
Sauce
1/3
cup hoisin sauce
1/3
cup water
1
tablespoon cornstarch
1/2
teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
Stir-Fry
2
tablespoons peanut or vegetable oil
2
cups fresh small broccoli florets
1 1/2
cups ready-to-eat baby-cut carrots, cut lengthwise into julienne (2x1/4x1/4-inch) strips
2
tablespoons water
1/2
cup cashew halves, if desired
  1. In medium bowl, mix beef, soy sauce, garlic and gingerroot; set aside. In small bowl, mix sauce ingredients with wire whisk until well blended; set aside.
  2. In wok or 12-inch skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over high heat about 1 minute. Add beef mixture, breaking up clumps of beef with wooden spoon; cook 1 minute without stirring. Stir-fry 1 to 2 minutes or until beef is browned around edges. Transfer beef mixture to clean bowl.
  3. To empty wok, add remaining 1 tablespoon oil; heat over high heat about 1 minute. Add broccoli and carrots; cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add 2 tablespoons water; cover and cook 2 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until broccoli and carrots are crisp-tender.
  4. Return beef mixture to wok. Mix sauce mixture again with wire whisk to recombine; pour into wok. Stir to coat mixture with sauce. Cook 1 to 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until sauce is thickened. Sprinkle each serving with cashews.

How-To
To make cutting the beef easier, put the uncooked flank steak in the freezer for 15 minutes. Cutting with the grain, cut the steak into 3 long strips, then cut each strip across the grain into 1/8-inch-thick slices.
Serve-With
Serve the stir-fry mixture over hot cooked rice or Asian noodles.
