    • 8 oz. spaghetti noodles
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • For the Beef and Broccoli:
    • 1/2 lb. flank steak, thinly sliced against the grain
    • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
    • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
    • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    • 3 cups broccoli florets
    • 1/4 cup chicken broth
    • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
    • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
    • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
    • Pinch of red pepper flakes (optional)
  • For Garnish (optional):
    • Sesame seeds
    • Chopped green onions

Instructions:

Marinate the Beef:

In a medium bowl, combine the sliced beef with soy sauce and cornstarch. Toss to coat and marinate for 10 minutes.

Cook the Noodles:

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the spaghetti noodles and cook according to package instructions until al dente (usually about 8-10 minutes). Drain the noodles and set them aside.

Cook the Beef:

Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over high heat. Add the marinated beef and cook, stirring constantly, until browned on all sides (about 3-4 minutes). Remove the beef from the pan and set it aside.

Cook the Broccoli:

Add the broccoli florets to the hot pan and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until tender-crisp.

Make the Sauce:

In a small bowl, whisk together the chicken broth, oyster sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, ground ginger, and red pepper flakes (if using).

Combine Everything:

Pour the sauce into the pan with the broccoli. Bring to a simmer and cook for 1 minute. Add the cooked beef and noodles back to the pan and toss to coat everything in the sauce.
