Stir fried Beef and Broccoli

1 tablespoon Canola Oil
1 tablespoon of crushed Garlic
1 large Onion, cubed
1 kilo beef tenderloin cut in strips
1 kilo Broccoli
1 can button mushrooms
4 tablespoons of olives
2-3 table spoons cornstarch
saved water from canned mushroom
salt and pepper to taste

Cut meat in strips. Cut the broccoli flowers from the stem and separate into desired sizes. Remove hard outer portions of the stem until the soft center reveals. Cut into bite size. Dissolve 2-3 tablespoons of cornstarch in a bowl of water.

In a wok, saute garlic and onion in oil, put the beef tenderloin and cover for three minutes. Remove impurities from the beef liquid, put a little salt and pepper and let cook for another two minutes. Put small amount of water or liquid from the canned mushroom, then place the broccoli, mushroom and bell peppers. Let cook for two to three minutes. Put sliced olives and the liquid from the canned mushroom. Add salt and pepper to taste. Let simmer for one minute. Add the dissolved cornstarch, stir to make sure the starch does not settle at the bottom. Let simmer and adjust taste with salt and pepper. Add soy sauce or oyster sauce if desired.

Note: Another way of cooking this is to steam or saute the broccoli separately. Serve beef and brocoli together in a plate.
