How to Make It
  1. Stir together sherry, soy sauce, garlic, sesame oil, and pepper flakes in a one- cup measuring cup. Transfer ¼ cup of the mixture to a large zip-close plastic bag.
  2. Add beef. Squeeze out air and seal bag; turn over to coat beef. Refrigerate, turning bag, for at least 1 hour or up to 2 hours.
  3. Add cornstarch and enough water to soy sauce mixture in the cup to bring the volume to ⅓ cup; stir mixture until smooth.
  4. Heat a large skillet over high heat until a drop of water sizzles in the pan; add canola oil and swirl to coat pan. Add beef and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Transfer beef to a plate. Add broccoli to wok; stir-fry 3 minutes, then cover and cook 1 minute. Restir cornstarch mixture; add it to the wok along with the beef. Stir-fry until sauce bubbles and thickens, about 2 minutes. Serve with rice.
