Start the beef and broccoli dish by cutting and cooking some sweet onion. I used 1/2 a medium onion. Cook until the onion is slightly soft.

While the onion is cooking, prepare the sauce. In a bowl, add 3 Tbsp cornstarch and 1/2 tsp garlic powder. Stir with 2 Tbsp of water.  This slurry will help make the sauce for the recipe thick.

In a measuring cup, portion out 1/3 cup of low sodium soy sauce, 1/2 cup of water, and 2 Tbsp of brown sugar.

Add the 1 lb ground beef and a slice of ginger to the frying pan and cook until the beef is done. Instead of strips of beef I’ve substituted ground beef. When the beef is just ready, add 4 cups of broccoli. 20161124_191108Add the soy sauce mixture to the frying pan and cover. Let the broccoli cook until it is soft and tender. This should take about 5 minutes.

Let the cornstarch cook for another 2-3 minutes. When the sauce because glossy and brown, it is ready!
