Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry

I wasn't planning to blog this, (which is why I only have 1 picture, but this was too good and simple not to share) I am always nervous about making a stir fry because I think the meat is usually tough. Today I went to Publix and ask the butcher for a piece of grass-fed "greenwise" organic beef sirloin. I brought the meat home and sliced it in half-lengthwise then cut the meat against the grain into very thin slices. This was key to very tender beef in the stir fry tonight! It has taken many times but I am sure this helps, when the meat slices are too large they are just tough and chewy which don't make for good eats.

1 lb sirloin steak (preferably grass fed, hormone free), sliced thin
1 t cornstarch
3 T soy sauce (I use Tamari, gluten free)
1 T canola oil
1-2 cups fresh broccoli florets
1 cup carrots, sliced thin
1 small onion, sliced thin
4 cloves garlic, sliced thin
1-2 t honey (local if possible)

3 T Soy sauce (GF)
2 t cornstarch
2 t brown sugar
2 T water

Whisk 3 T of soy sauce and 1 t of cornstarch in a large bowl, add sliced beef and gently toss to combine.  Whisk the ingredients for the sauce together and set aside. Heat a wok to high, add the canola oil once hot, add beef, discard marinade. Cook beef for 3-4 minutes then remove from heat and set aside. To the hot wok add the broccoli, carrots, onions, and garlic and stir fry for 3-4 minutes, adding the sauce in the last minute. Finally add the beef back to the wok stir to combine. Lightly drizzle honey over the top. Serve over brown rice.
