1 tbsp cornstarch
1/4 cup of soy sauce

Sauce
In a small bowl, mix together the soy sauce, hoisin sauce, garlic & brown sugar.
(Save the corn starch for later)

Stir fry
In a large pan or wok, fill the bottom with about an inch of water & boil.
Once boiling, add the broccoli.
Cook until almost soft, then drain & set aside.
In the same pan/ wok add the beef & cook until brown on each side.
Once cooked, add the sauce & mix well.
In a small bowl, mix together the corn starch & about a teaspoon of water until a slurry is created.
Slowly pour the corn starch slurry into the pan, stirring well.
(This is to thicken the sauce).
Add the mushroom slices & broccoli back into the pan.
