Beef and Broccoli Stir-fry

I have officially decided that I love Chinese food, I also decided that I don’t attempt to make enough Chinese dishes.  One of  my all time favorite Chinese meals is  beef and broccoli.  I don’t know what it is but the flavors together are great, with the crisp bite  broccoli.   I thought this dish was fantastic and it was so easy to throw together.

    You left out the half cup water? I assume it is to be added to the sauce mix at the end?
