 ¼ cup (50 mL) beef broth
 2 tbsp (30 mL) Thai fish sauce (or soy sauce)
 2 tbsp (30 mL) cornstarch
 1 tsp (5 mL) finely grated lime rind
 1 tbsp (15 mL) fresh lime juice
 2 tsp (10 mL) granulated sugar
 2 tsp (10 mL) sesame oil
 1 lb (500 g) Beef Stir-Fry Strips or Grilling Steak cut into strips
 3 cup (750 mL) small broccoli florets
 14 oz (398 mL) can baby corn, drained and cut cobs in half
 3 cloves garlic, minced
 2 tsp (10 mL) minced ginger root
 1 tsp (5 mL) minced seeded hot chili pepper
 1 ½ cup (375 mL) grape tomatoes, halved
 ? cup (75 mL) slivered fresh basil leaves

Combine beef broth, fish sauce, cornstarch, lime rind and juice, sugar and sesame oil in large sealable freezer bag. Add beef strips; seal bag, squeezing gently to massage marinade into beef. Refrigerate for up to 30 minutes.

Drain meat through colander set over bowl, reserving marinade. Stir-fry beef strips using medium-high heat in hot lightly oiled nonstick skillet for 2 minutes or until browned but still pink inside. Transfer meat to clean bowl.

Stir-Fry broccoli in the same skillet for 3 to 5 minutes or until almost tender-crisp. Add baby corn, garlic, ginger and hot pepper; stir-fry for 30 seconds or until corn is starting to brown. Return beef to skillet along with any juices in bowl and reserved marinade. Bring to boil; cook, stirring, for 1 to 2 minutes or until sauce is bubbly and thickened. Stir in tomatoes and heat through. Remove from heat; stir in basil. Serve stir-fry over steamed jasmine rice or Thai rice noodles.
