1 1/4 pounds flank steak, cut diagonally across the grain into 1/2-inch-by-3-inch strips

1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon canola oil

1. In a large, shallow bowl, mix soy sauce, apple juice, vinegar, sugar, garlic, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

Add meat; toss to coat.

Let marinate 15 minutes. Transfer meat to a plate; reserve marinade.

In two batches, cook meat until lightly browned, turning once, about 2 minutes per batch. Remove meat.

Add 1/2 cup water to pan; stir up browned bits with a wooden spoon.

Pour into marinade; whisk in cornstarch.

3. In same skillet, fry broccoli in remaining teaspoon oil over high heat until bright green and crisp, tossing often, 2 minutes.

Add 1 cup water; cook until broccoli is tender, 6 to 8 minutes.

4. Stir marinade, add to pan, and bring to a boil.

Cook, stirring, until thickened, 30 seconds. Return meat to pan; toss to coat.

Season with salt and pepper.

Serve immediately.

Note: To make it easier to slice the steak very thinly, place it in the freezer for 20 to 30 minutes, wrapped well in plastic.

Chinese noodles, available in the Asian section of most supermarkets, are a delicious accompaniment. You can also serve the stir-fry over white or brown rice.
