Beef with Broccoli

Beef with Broccoli is great recipe for a classic Chinese take-out dish!



For the Marinade:

For the Sauce:


  1. In a medium size bowl whisk together the ingredients for the marinade. Add the steak and stir to coat. Let sit for 15 minutes.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, add broccoli and cook for 2-3 minutes. Strain water and set aside.
  3. Meanwhile whisk together the ingredients for the sauce, set aside.
  4. Heat a wok over medium-high heat and add 1 tbsp of oil. In small batches cook the steak strips in the hot wok, about 30 seconds per side (they should be thin and cook through quickly). Remove cooked steak from wok to a warm plate. Use remaining oil if necessary to cook the remaining beef. On the last batch of beef, after you’ve flipped the steak strips over, add the garlic and ginger and stir until fragrant.
  5. Return all the steak to the wok, turn heat down to medium. Pour in the sauce mixture and stir until it starts to bubble slightly. Pour the dissolved cornstarch into the steak strips. Let simmer until sauce thickens. Toss in the broccoli, stir to coat.
  6. Serve over hot rice and garnish with sesame seeds and sliced green onions if desired. Enjoy!


To easily slice thin steak strips try freezing your steak for about 20 minutes before slicing.
