Steak + Broccoli Stir Fry

Skirt steak might be my favorite kind of steak.  It has a great beefy flavor and not so much connective tissue that it get tough from high heat stir frying. When it comes to stir fries, a wok is great but I don't have one so I like to use a large iron skillet.  

A high heat, neutrally flavored oil is another thing you're going to need.  Grape seed oil is my favorite but canola, peanut, soy or corn are other options.  To keep things light, I like to keep it in a spritz bottle.  This way a couple squirts easily coat the pan.  I like this bottle from amazon.
