Beef and broccoli stir fry

This one is so easy that I almost hesitate to share it.  Almost :-)

Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry

4 parts hoisin sauce
1 part Asian chill-garlic sauce
2 parts soy sauce
Up to 4 parts water

2 heads of broccoli
2 - 3 carrots

Vegetable oil
1 lb flank steak, sliced, or other lean sliced steak
1 T fresh ginger, minced
Sesame seeds for garnish

Mix the hoisin sauce through the water and set aside.  To make enough sauce to thoroughly coat the amount of vegetables and meat listed here, start with 1/4 c hoisin sauce.

Cut up the vegetables into bite-sized pieces and steam them for a few minutes until tender.  Set aside.  Heat some oil in a wok and brown the meat quickly.  Remove and set it aside.  Add the vegetables and the ginger to the pot and stir fry until heated through.  Add the meat and the sauce mixture and cook until the sauce thickens slightly, just a few minutes.  Divide into bowls and garnish with sesame seeds.
