Diet.Chef's picture
  Broccoli head 1 Pound, cut into 40 small florets (1 Large Head)
  Cornstarch 1 Tablespoon
  Canned beef broth 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Dry sherry 1 Tablespoon
  Soy sauce 1 Tablespoon
  Rice vinegar 2 Teaspoon
  Sugar 1 Teaspoon
  Vegetable oil 1 Teaspoon
  Minced fresh ginger 1 Tablespoon
  Garlic clove 1 Medium, crushed through a press
  Oriental sesame oil 1 Teaspoon
  Scallions 3 Medium, thinly sliced

1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil over high heat. Drop in the broccoli and cook just until tender, about 3 minutes after the water returns to a boil. Drain. Cover with aluminum foil to keep hot.
2. In a small bowl, stir together the corn-starch, stock, sherry, soy sauce, vinegar and sugar. In a small heavy saucepan, combine the vegetable oil, ginger and garlic.

Stirring constantly, cook the ginger sauce over moderate heat un til thickened and boiling. Stir in the sesame oil and scallions and remove from the heat.
3. Pour the sauce onto a warmed serving platter. Arrange the broccoli florets up side down in the gravy (stems up). Serve hot.
