Stir fried beef and broccoli

2 Tbls. Soy sauce 1/2 tsp. salt 1Tbls. Pale dry sherry 1/2 cup oil 1/2 lb. lean beef (lamb or nilgai will do as well) very thinly sliced 1 Tbls. Red wine vinegar 1 Tbls. Sesame oil 1/2 tsp. black pepper 2 cloves garlic, mi need 2 bunches green onions Mix together 1Tbls. Of the soy sauce, the salt, sherry, and 2 Tbls. Of the oil. Add the meat slices amd leave to marinate for 5 minutes. Mix the remaining soy sauce with the vinegar, sesame seed oil and pepper in a small bowl. Heat the remaining oil in a pan. Add the garlic and stir-fry for 10 seconds. Add the meat and stir-fry until browned. Shred a few of the green onions and set aside for garnish. Cut the remainder into 2 inch pieces and add to the meat together with the vinegar mixture. Stir-fry for a few seconds. Serve hot, garnished with the reserved green onions. Serve over steamed rice. This is the basic recipe. We have made changes to it. We use at least a pound of meat, sometimes 2 pounds. We also add snow peas, carrots cut very small, and broccoli. We change the measurements of all the liquids to 1/3 to 1/2 of a cup for each liquid to make enough sauce. Be creative. This is just a basic recipe. Enjoy.

Line half of the muffin cups with one slice of ham.  Top with an egg.
Line remaining  cups with muffin papers (or grease them with Pam).  Fill these cups with muffin mixture (2/3 full).
Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until eggs are desired firmness and golden brown.  Don't overcook unless you want the yolks hard).
