Gluten Free Beef and Broccoli

My bridesmaids made this for my bachelorette party and gave me the recipe afterward.  I made this for dinner tonight.  My hubby & I love it!  (This recipe feeds 2)

Gluten Free Beef and Broccoli
1 pound beef steak (you can find pre-cut strips at Safeway)
1/4 cup gluten free soy sauce
3 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
1 1/4 cup cold water
16 ounces frozen broccoli florets
2 Tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves minced garlic
2 teaspoons sesame oil

Combine soy sauce, sugar, corn starch, and water in a small bowl and set aside.
Cut steak against the grain into thin strips about 1/4 inch thick.  I find it’s easiest to cut the steak when it’s frozen (thaw it for 30 minutes so that it’s not rock solid).
If you have pre-cut strips, you won’t have to worry about this step! 
Heat a large skillet to medium high.  Put the olive oil and steak in the skillet and cook both sides until brown, about 4-5 minutes.
Steam broccoli in the microwave or in a steamer while steak is cooking.
I just heat it up in water on the stove until it boils, then I drain it right away.  This gives it a good consistency!
When the steak is brown, add the garlic and cook for 1 minute.
Pour the soy sauce mixture over the meat and cook until it begins to thicken.
Stir in the sesame oil.
Remove from heat, stir in the steamed broccoli and serve over rice.  Enjoy!
