Healthy Beef and Broccoli

1 Tablespoon Vegetable Oil, Divided
1 pound Flank Steak, Thinly Sliced Across The Grain
3 cloves Garlic, Minced
1 whole Shallot, Finely Chopped
4 whole Green Onions, Thinly Sliced
4 cups Broccoli Florets
3/4 cups Water
2 Tablespoons Cornstarch
13 cups Soy Sauce
2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
1 teaspoon Fresh Ginger, Minced
18 teaspoons Crushed Red Pepper Flakes


Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef and cook until well-browned, about 68 minutes. Once well-browned, remove from pan and set aside. In the same pan, add garlic, shallot and green onions to the beef drippings. Cook 1 minute, stirring frequently. Add broccoli and cover for 5 minutes. In a small mixing bowl, combine water and cornstarch and mix until no longer lumpy. Combine soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger and red pepper flakes in a medium bowl. Add cornstarch mixture and stir to combine. Set aside. Remove cover from pan and add sauce. Cook until sauce starts to thicken, about 35 minutes. Add beef and stir to combine, cooking an additional 23 minutes. Serve over brown rice, if desired.
