  • 1 tablespoon oyster-flavored sauce

  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar

  • 1 1/2-2 teaspoons chile-garlic sauce

  • 4 teaspoons canola oil, divided

  • 12 ounces beef top sirloin, trimmed of fat and cut into 1/4-inch strips

  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger

  • 1 large onion, slivered (1 1/2-2 cups)

  1. 4 servings, 1 1/4 cups each

  2. Combine 1/4 cup broth, cornstarch, soy sauce, marmalade, oyster sauce, vinegar and chile-garlic sauce in a small bowl; mix well.

  3. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a wok or large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add half the beef; stir-fry until browned, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Stir-fry the remaining beef in 1 teaspoon oil; transfer to the plate.

  4. Add the remaining 2 teaspoons oil to the wok. Add ginger and stir-fry until fragrant, 10 to 20 seconds. Add onion; stir-fry for 30 seconds. Add bell pepper and broccoli; stir-fry for 30 seconds. Pour in the remaining 1/4 cup broth, cover and cook until the vegetables are crisp-tender, 2 to 4 minutes. Push the vegetables to the sides. Stir the sauce mixture and add it to the wok.
