Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 13 cup soy sauce, reduced-sodium
  • 1 tablespoon liquid honey
  • 14 teaspoon hot pepper flakes (to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon butter, divided
  • 1 lb boneless beef grilling steak, cut into thin strips
  • 1 onion, cut in half and sliced
  • 6 cups broccoli, pieces
  • 2 tablespoons fresh gingerroot, grated (or 1 tsp. ground)
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice, freshly squeezed


  1. In a bowl, whisk a little of the milk into cornstarch to make a smooth paste. Whisk in remaining milk, lemon zest, soy sauce, honey and hot pepper flakes; set aside.
  2. Heat a wok or large skillet over high heat. Add beef and stir-fry for 3 minutes or until browned; transfer to a bowl. Add remaining butter to pan, then onion and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add broccoli and ginger and stir-fry for 3 minutes or until onion is tender. Return beef and accumulated juices to pan.
  3. Whisk milk mixture and pour into pan. Cook, stirring and scraping up brown bits, for about 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in lemon juice.
  4. COOKING TIP: Grate the lemon zest and the ginger on the fine-side of a box cheese grater. Grating the ginger gets the most from the flavor in the short cooking time of a stir-fry.
  5. Cut the prep time by buying precut beef stir-fry strips and pre-cut broccoli.
