2 tablespoons Water

Gravy:

Cook's Notes:

Choose a lean cut of beef, use a non-stick wok and one-half to one-third of the oil to reduce the fat in this dish.

Cut the beef across the grain. It is easier to cut if it's partially frozen.

Don't overcook the meat or it will be tough. The broccoli stays bright green because it is stir fried.

For a more Oriental flavor, add 1-2 tablespoons bottled oyster sauce to the gravy.
