Beef Broccoli

Beef Broccoli
3/4 lbs. lean boneless beef (flank, round, skirt or tenderloin)

1 tbsp. rice vinegar (substitute rice wine if desired)
3/4 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. soy sauce
2 tbsp. water
2 tsp. cornstarch

3 tbsp. oyster sauce
2 tbsp. soy sauce
¼ cup water
1 tsp. cornstarch mixed w/ 4 tbsp. water (cornstarch mixture)
2 lbs. fresh broccoli
3 garlic cloves, crushed
1 medium onion, chopped (white)
½ tsp. of salt
ground pepper
5 tbsp. canola oil (butter if desired)
1 stalk scallion, cut 1 inch long

Slice the beef into thin cuts. Add the marinade ingredients then put cornstarch on the meat spreading it using your fingers . Leave it for 30 minutes. Set aside.

After marinating; heat the wok and add 1 tablespoon of oil. When the oil is hot, add garlic and stir fry until aromatic. Add the broccoli and a touch of salt.  Mix everything together. Turn down the heat if necessary to make sure it doesn't burn. Add ¼ cup of water.  Cover it for  2 minutes until broccoli turns bright green and is tender but still crisp. Remove from the wok and drain.

Clean up the wok with paper towel. Add 3 tablespoons of oil. Fry the beef for 3-5 minutes. Do not overcook the beef! Drain off the oil and set aside.

Use another saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon oil, then add the beef and stir for 1 minute. Add onion, scallions and broccoli mixture. Stir and cover it for 1 minute. Add oyster sauce and sprinkle the remaining salt and pepper. Stir briefly and cover it for 2 minutes. Add cornstarch mixture and stir quickly to thicken. Turn off the heat and serve hot over steamed rice.



Delicious recipe.

Beef broccoli was really delicious even before. Actually this is one of my favorite. Thanks for posting it here on your version and I will try to cook it. Do you also have a stir fried chicken? I want to cook it also.
