This is one of the recipes that has been provided by Shirley Cline from San Francisco in response to my quest for recipes using Balsamic Vinegar. (You can contact Shirley by emailing her - click here).


2 Tblsp cornstarch, divided
1/4 cup soy sauce, divided
1 Tblsp dry sherry
1 lb stir fry beef strips
1 cup milk
1/2 tsp hot pepper sauce or chili paste (to your own taste)
2 Tblsp vegetable oil
1 onion, sliced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 - 2 Tblsp minced ginger root (or 1 - 2 tsp ground ginger)
6 cups broccoli florets

  • In bowl, stir together half each of the cornstarch and soy sauce with the sherry. Add beef and stir to coat.
  • In a separate bowl, stir together milk, remaining cornstarch and soy sauce and hot pepper sauce. Set aside.
  • In a wok or nonstick skillet, heat oil over high heat and stir fry beef mixture and onion for 2 minutes or until browned.
  • Add garlic, ginger and broccoli. Stir fry for 2 minutes.
  • Stir in milk mixture, cook stirring often for 4 minutes or until sauce is thickened and broccoli is tender crisp.


Can also add to the milk mixture, hoisin sauce or oyster sauce and 2 cups of bok choy along with the broccoli.
