Made this today! So delicious. I used cornstarch in the marinade and xanthan gum in the sauce. Very nice.

Beef and Broccoli in Oyster Sauce (Brown Sauce)
Serves 4

¾ pound flank steak

Marinade:
1 T soy sauce
2 tsp dry sherry
2 tsp cornstarch

1 large stalk broccoli, about 10 ounces
2 T Oyster Sauce
1 T Soy Sauce
1 T dry sherry
1 T water
¼ tsp Splenda
2 tsp cornstarch mixed with 4 tsp water
3 T peanut oil
1 T minced garlic
2 T minced scallions, green and white parts

Thinly slice the steak and combine with the marinade ingredients.

Cut the broccoli into individual florets with long, thin stems (think how you see it in Chinese restaurants). Cook the broccoli in salted water briefly in boiling water. Rinse with cold water and set aside

Combine the oyster sauce, soy sauce, dry sherry, water and Splenda in a small bowl.

Heat the wok, large saucepan or electric skillet over high heat and swirl in 2 T of peanut oil. Stir fry the beef until it loses its red color, about 2 minutes. Remove from the pan.

Return the wok to high heat, swirl in the remaining oil. Stir fry the garlic and scallions just until their aroma is released, about 10 seconds. Add the blanched broccoli and toss to heat and coat with oil, about 30 seconds. Pour in the sauce and beef. Toss well and cook an additional minute. Drizzle in the cornstarch mixture, stirring constantly to thicken, about 30 seconds. Remove from heat and serve.

When a recipe has a symbol in the ingredient list like this: "¾ pound flank steak" would that be 3/4 pound or 1 3/4 pounds? What does the "" signify? I see that in a lot of the recipes in this thread.

I think the A thing means they used the character 1/2, 3/4, etc instead of typing the individual numbers out? So you would ignore the A and just read the amount that shows.

Thanks, Dottie. That's what I thought. I wonder why she didn't correct that when she originally posted the recipes.
