Beef and Broccoli

My sister sent this yummy recipe to me.  This is really good and quick and easy!  My sister said she didn't have apple juice, so she substituted orange juice, and it was fine.  Her hubby is diabetic, so she only used 1T sugar, and she said it was good that way.  I put toasted sesame seeds in it for fun.  Enjoy!!!

1 pound top round beef steak
¼ cup soy sauce
2 Tlbs sugar
¼ cup white grape juice or apple juice
2 Tlbs cornstarch
1 cup water
2 cups fresh broccoli florets, stems removed
4 Tlbs vegetable or olive oil, divided
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons sesame oil
(toasted sesame seeds, optional)
Cut beef steak into 2-inch strips; set aside.(I cut mine into bite-sized pieces) Combine soy sauce, sugar, juice, cornstarch, and water in a small bowl; set aside. In a large skillet, stir-fry broccoli in 2 tlbs oil for about 5 minutes over medium heat. Do not overcook. Place broccoli in another dish. Pour remaining oil in the same skillet and heat on medium high. Add beef steak and cook until well browned on all sides, about 10 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, not more than one minute. Pour soy sauce mixture over meat and cook until slightly thickened. Stir in sesame oil. Remove from heat. Stir in broccoli. Serve over hot steamed rice. Makes 8 servings.
