Quick Beef with Broccoli

['1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch', '1/4 teaspoon salt', '1/4 teaspoon black pepper', '3/4 pound sirloin beef tips, sliced against the grain 1/8 inch thick', '3 tablespoons vegetable oil', '10 ounces frozen broccoli florets, thawed', '3 garlic cloves, chopped', '3 tablespoons soy sauce', '1/3 cup water', 'Accompaniment: rice', 'Garnish: fresh cilantro sprigs', 'a well-seasoned 14-inch flat-bottomed wok']

Toss together cornstarch, salt, pepper, and beef in a bowl until meat is coated.
Heat 2 tablespoons oil in wok over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, then stir-fry beef until just cooked through, about 1 minute. Transfer with a slotted spoon to another bowl and keep warm, loosely covered with foil.
Add remaining tablespoon oil to wok along with broccoli and garlic and stir-fry over moderately high heat until broccoli is just tender and garlic is pale golden, about 2 minutes.
Add soy sauce and water and bring to a boil. Return meat to skillet and cook, stirring, until sauce is thickened, about 2 minutes.
