  1. Mix first 7 ingredients in small bowl. Heat oil in wok over high heat. Add beef and stir-fry until medium-rare, about 3 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer to bowl.

  2. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon oil from wok. Add sauce mixture to wok and bring to a boil. Add chicken broth and boil until sauce thickens slightly, about 2 minutes. Return beef to sauce in wok; add basil leaves and stir just until beef is cooked through, about 1 minute.
