Beef and Broccoli Stir-fry

I made this favorite for dinner last night and you've have thought we were giving the babes ice cream! You can use either thinly sliced steak or leftover roast or even ground beef. It's a simple meal and can be prepared while your rice or pasta is cooking. We usually serve it over rice and everyone loves it, but it's great served over cooked angel hair pasta or spaghetti noodles! This is one of those, add a little of whatever you would like recipes and it just gets better and better!

2 carrots, thinly sliced
1 pound broccoli , cut into bite size pieces or 1 bag frozen
2 stalks of celery, sliced
1 package fresh mushrooms, sliced or halved
1 onion, thinly sliced
1 sliced pepper
1pound thinly sliced or ground beef
1 tbsp. fresh garlic
1 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tbsp. cornstarch
1 tbsp. fresh ginger (I keep my fresh ginger in a ziplock bag in the freezer and grate it whenever I need it)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp. sesame oil
1/2 tsp. sugar
1/4 tsp pepper
1 Tbsp. oyster sauce (You can make it without, but it enhances the flavor.)
Stir-fry the veggies in a couple tablespoons of olive oil until cooked tender, but crisp. Stir-fry the meat and mix the two. Add remaining ingredients in a mixing bowl then pour over the meat and veggies. Heat until thickened a bit. Enjoy!
