This is a favorite at our house but we have made a few changes from the original recipe. I normally marinate the meat for several hours and add extra garlic in the marinade. I also add slices of white onion with the veggies and skip the broccoli stems. The sauce isn't thick but it has great flavor and we have never added corn starch.
