    Marinate the Beef

    Combine half the cornstarch (reserve remaining for sauce), half the ginger (reserve remaining for cooking beef), half the sherry (reserve remaining for sauce), and sugar in a medium mixing bowl. Rinse beef strips, pat dry, and add to bowl, stirring to coat completely. Marinate at least 10 minutes. While meat marinates, prepare ingredients.

    Cook the Rice

    Bring a small pot with rice and 1 ½ cups water to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until rice is tender, 18-20 minutes. Remove from burner, keep covered, and set aside. While rice cooks, begin vegetables.

    Cook the Vegetables

    Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil, ½ cup water, and broccoli stems to hot pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until water has evaporated and broccoli is crisp tender, 4-6 minutes. Add broccoli tops and cook, stirring constantly, until wilted, 1-2 minutes. Season with ¼ tsp. salt and remove to a plate. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

Add sliced beef to pan and cook, stirring constantly, until browned, 2-4 minutes. Stir cornstarch mixture to recombine and add Chinese broccoli and cornstarch-oyster sauce mixture to pan and cook until sauce is bubbling and thickened, 2-3 minutes.
