Beef & Broccoli

Recipe From:
Next time I'll double the sauce and/or lessen the cornstarch...and use fresh ginger/garlic/onions instead of powdered. Also, instead of chunky peanut butter, I'll use reduced fat creamy.Ingredients
1/2 lb beef (thinly sliced)
2 cups broccoli (cut into small pieces)
1/2 cup water
1 tbsp chunky peanut butter
1 tbsp cornstarch
2 tsp vinegar
1/4 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp powdered ginger
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
2 tbsp oil

In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, peanut butter, water, cornstarch, vinegar, pepper, ginger, garlic powder, and onion powder. Mix well and set aside. Begin steaming the broccoli. In large skillet or wok, heat the oil. Add beef and cook, stirring constantly, for 2-3 minutes. Add the broccoli (already partially steamed), and cook for another 3-4 minutes (or until meat and broccoli are almost done), stirring constantly. Add the sauce and mix thoroughly, then continue to stir until the sauce thickens. Serve over steamed rice.
