    1. Mix 1 tbsp soya sauce and all the brown sugar in a medium bowl. Add beef; toss to coat. Marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes. Steam broccoli until crisp-tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Cool under cold running water. Drain.
    2. Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a high heat. Add meat. Stir-fry just until pink, 2 minutes. Remove from pan.
    3. Add mushrooms, capsicum, snow peas, spring onion, garlic, ginger and chilli flakes to pan. Stir-fry until snow peas are crisp-tender, 3 to 4 minutes.
    4. Combine the stock, remaining soya sauce, the vinegar and cornflour in a small bowl until smooth. Add to pan. Bring to the boil (mixture will be thick). Add broccoli. Cook just until heated through, about 2 minutes.
    5. Drain beef. Add to pan. Heat through, about 30 seconds. Serve immediately.
