  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 12 ounces boneless beef top sirloin steak
  • 1 small bunch broccoli (about 1 pound)
  • 2 teaspoons cooking oil
  • 2 medium carrots, bias-sliced 1/8 inch thick
  • 3/4 cup reduced-sodium beef broth
  • 4 green onions, bias-sliced
  • 2 cups hot cooked spaghetti squash or angel hair pasta


  1. For marinade, in a medium bowl, combine soy sauce, cornstarch, vinegar, ginger, crushed red pepper, and garlic. Trim fat from meat. Cut meat across the grain into 1/8-inch-thick slices. Add meat to marinade; toss to coat. Cover and marinate at room temperature for 10 minutes. Drain meat, discarding marinade.
  2. Meanwhile, cut broccoli florets from stems. If desired, peel stems. Cut stems into 1/4-inch-thick slices.
  3. In a wok or large skillet, heat 1 teaspoon of the oil over medium-high heat. Add meat; cook and stir in hot oil for 2 to 3 minutes or until slightly pink in center. Remove meat from wok or skillet.
  4. Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil to hot wok or skillet. Add broccoli and carrots; cook and stir for 1 minute. Add beef broth: cook and stir for 5 to 7 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender, stirring to scrape up any browned bits from bottom of wok or skillet. Return cooked meat to wok or skillet. Add green onions; heat through. Serve immediately over hot cooked spaghetti squash or pasta. Makes 4 ( 1 1/4 cup stir-fry and 1/2 cup spaghetti) servings.
