DIRECTIONS

  • In a bowl, combine garlic powder, ground ginger, & onion powder.
  • Add beef and toss. Put into quart sized freezer bag.
  • Put frozen broccoli into separate freezer bag.
  • In a quart sized freezer bag combine soy sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, cornstarch & water until smooth.
  • (I made 22 recipes of this for my exchange, so I put 1 Tbsp of cornstarch in each bag, and lined them up on my counter. Then I mixed all the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl. Then I poured a bit more than 3/4 cup of the mixture into each bag and that came out about right).
  • Seal bags tightly, lay flat on cookie sheets, and freeze everything.
  • To cook from frozen:
  • Defrost everything overnight in the fridge. Half hour before cooking, take everything out of the fridge so it can completely defrost.
  • In a large skillet or wok, over medium-high heat, stir-fry beef in your choice of oil until beef reaches desired doneness.
  • At the same time, warm up your broccoli a bit under some hot running water in a collander so that it doesn't cool down your stir fry when you add it to the pan.
  • Add the broccoli and stir-fry another 2-4 minutes until broccoli reaches desired doneness.
  • At this point you can add either or both of the optional veggies for flavor & color and the red pepper if you like it a little spicy.
  • Next, add the contents of the sauce bag to the pan.
  • Cook and stir for about 2 more minutes, until sauce thickens sufficiently.
  • Sprinkle the whole thing with sesame seeds or peanuts if desired.
  • Serve over hot cooked rice.
