Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Thinly sliced sirloin, often labeled “for stir-fry,” is available in most grocery stores. If you’d rather use a sirloin steak, placing the steak in the freezer for 10 minutes before cutting will make it easier to slice it very thinly.
  • Tip 2
    Short on time? Buy a 12-oz bag of broccoli florets, and use the leftover broccoli in lunches or as a quick appetizer with ranch dressing for dipping.
