Easy Beef and Broccoli

This is so easy and so delicious! Because cube steak is always plentiful around here it is what I use. If the steak seems a bit tough I just pound it with a mallet before marinating.

You will need:
1 - 1 1/2  lb. cube steak cut into bite size pieces
6 cups of broccoli florets
Cooked rice

Marinate meat for about an hour in:
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp. sugar
1 tbsp. corn starch
1 tbsp. low sodium soy sauce
1 tbsp. water
2 tbsp. oil

For the sauce mix together:
3/4 c. low sodium soy sauce
3 tbsp. brown sugar
4 cloves garlic, minced
3 tbsp. flour
2 tbsp. water or beef stock

Heat a couple of tablespoons of oil in a pan. Add broccoli and saute for 4-5 minutes. Remove from pan. Add meat and half the sauce and cook until done. Add broccoli and the rest of the sauce cook a couple more minutes. Serve over rice.
(If you find the sauce too salty you may use half soy sauce and half beef broth.)
