Beef-Broccoli Stir-Fry

My husband took today off from work to help get ready the house ready for Christmas, since we're hosting.  He actually made dinner tonight while I finished up some last minute baking (posts and pics to come!).  Tonight's dinner was quick, easy, and tasty! Great for a week night dinner. The recipe calls for 1 tablespoon of bottled fresh ginger.  I'm not a big ginger fan, so my husband grated a tiny bit of the fresh piece of ginger that we keep in our freezer.  He also used the Sriracha, which made the broccoli too spicy for my daughter, but which my son loved.  So, he ate her broccoli and she ate his steak!
