Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry

Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry
Original recipe from The America’s Test Kitchen Family Cookbook
Recipe below found in An Ordinary Mom
(comments in parenthesis are from An Ordinary Mom)

1/2 cup oyster sauce
1/4 cup chicken broth
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons sesame oil
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 pound flank steak, trimmed and sliced thin (The nice butcher at the grocery store cut mine for no additional charge.)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil (I used PAM instead)
1 1/2 pounds broccoli, chopped (I used one bag of frozen broccoli florets)
1 red pepper, stemmed, seeded and chopped medium
1/3 cup water
6 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon grated ginger

Whisk the oyster sauce, broth, brown sugar sesame oil and cornstarch together. Pat the the beef dry with paper towels, then season with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a 12-inch skillet over high heat until just smoking. Brown the beef lightly, about 3 minutes, then transfer to a clean bowl. Add the broccoli, bell pepper and water to the skillet and return to medium heat. Cover and cook until the broccoli is bright green, about 2 minutes. Uncover and continue to cook until the liquid evaporates, about 3 minutes. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil (I skipped this step), the garlic, scallions and ginger and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Briefly re-whisk the oyster sauce mixture to recombine, then add to the skillet with the beef. Toss until all the ingredients are well coated with sauce.
