I really enjoyed making this dish and especially enjoyed eating it. I don't think I cut my steak thin enough, but it was still very tender. The broccoli came out perfect! My Boyfriend always orders this when we go out and now I can make it for him at home.

  3. Add 1 tablespoon oil to oil left in wok. Heat 30 seconds. Stir-fry garlic 30 seconds. Add broccoli tops. Stir-fry 5 minutes. Add cornstarch paste, salt, soy sauce, chicken broth, and pepper. Remove from wok and arrange on a platter.
