Chinese: spicy sesame beef stir-fry

Yield: 2 servings

Measure Ingredient
½ pounds Tender boneless beef, such as sirloin, cut crosswise into scant 1/4 inch slices
1½ tablespoon Sesame seeds
1 large Broccoli stalk
½ Yellow bellpepper, thinly sl
½ cup Canned beef broth
2 tablespoons Soy sauce
1 tablespoon Ginger, peeled, minced
1 large Garlic clove
1 teaspoon Cornstarch
¼ teaspoon Dried crushed red pepper
3 tablespoons Vegetable oil

Combine beef strips with 1-½ tablespoons sesame seeds in small bowl. Toss to coat well. Cut florets off broccoli stalk. Peel stalk and thinly slice crosswise. Combine broccoli florets and stalk with yellow pepper in medium bowl. Stir broth, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, cornstarch, and crushed red pepper in small bowl until cornstarch dissolves.

Heat 1-½ tablespoons oil in wok or heavy large skillet over high heat. Add beef and stir-fry until brown, about 2 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer beef to plate. Heat remaining 1-½ tablespoons oil in wok. Add broccoli and peppers and cover wok. Add beef and accumulated juices from plate. Simmer until sauce thickens, stirring occasionally, about 1 minute. Transfer beef mixture to platter. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds if desired and serve.
