  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. In a medium bowl, stir together 2 teaspoons of the cornstarch, the soy sauce, garlic, and crushed red pepper; add beef and stir to coat. Marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, cook Chinese noodles or vermicelli according to package directions, except omit salt; drain and set aside.
  3. Cut broccoli into 2-inch florets. Peel broccoli stem and cut into ½-inch slices; set aside. For sauce: Stir together hoisin sauce, the water, sesame oil, and the remaining 1 teaspoon cornstarch; set aside.
  4. In a very large skillet or wok heat canola oil over medium-high heat. Add beef mixture; stir-fry for 1 to 2 minutes or until still slightly pink in center. Remove beef mixture; set aside.
  5. Stir beef broth into skillet, scraping up any browned bits from bottom of skillet. Add broccoli; bring to boiling. Reduce heat to medium. Cover and cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until broccoli is crisp-tender.
  6. Add sauce to broccoli; cook and stir until thickened. Add beef and tomatoes; heat through. Serve over cooked Chinese noodles or whole wheat vermicelli.
  • Test Kitchen Tip: For easier slicing, freeze the beef for 30 to 60 minutes before slicing.
