Broccoli & Beef Stir Fry

Even though this dish is considered to be one of the “American-Chinese Food” dishes, I actually had this dish very often when I was growing up in China, it’s just one of those great combinations of flavors, and it’s quick and easy! This recipe serves about 2

You’ll Need:

  • 3/4 lb beef
  • 1 lb broccoli
  • 1/3 cup oyster sauce
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp white sugar
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil, plus more if needed
  • 1 thin slice of fresh ginger root
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and smashed

How To Make This:

  1. Cut the beef into 1/8-inch thick strips, marinated the beef strips in the sesame oil, soy sauce, sugar, and cornstarch for about 30 min to 1 hour
  2. Rinse the broccoli and cut into florets, blanch them in boiling water for about 1min, strain and rinse with cold water to cool
  3. Heat up a pan or wok with vegetable oil over medium-high heat, lightly fry the garlic and ginger, then add the beef strips and stir-fry for about 2 min, then add the blanched broccoli & oyster sauce, cook for another 2 min
  4. Sprinkle on some roasted sesame seed, serve it with some rice
