  1. Slice beef across the grain into thin slices (best done when partially frozen).
  2. Mix together 1 tsp brown sugar with 4 tsp sesame oil, 4 tsp rice wine, and 2 tsp cornstarch.
  3. Pour this mixture over beef and allow beef to rest for 30 minutes.
  4. In a small bowl, combine remaining 4 tsp rice wine, 2 tbsp oyster sauce, 2 tsp cornstarch, and 4 tbsp water.
  5. Heat wok or deep skillet on high heat.
  6. Add 2 tbsp vegetable oil, and when it is hot, and ginger and salt.
  7. Wait a few seconds, then add the broccoli, and stir-fry for one minute.
  8. Then add the water to the broccoli, and steam-fry the broccoli until the water evaporates.
  9. Remove broccoli from wok or skillet.
  10. Reheat wok or skillet on high and add remaining 2 tbsp vegetable oil.
  11. Add beef and stir-fry, but do not stir too much- allow the beef to sear against the pan.
  12. When it has browned, add the seasoning sauce (stirring first to re-mix the cornstarch).
  13. Add broccoli back to wok or skillet and stir to mix.
  14. When sauce has thickened and stir-fry is hot, serve.
