Easy Beef Broccoli Stir-Fry – Better Than Take-Out!

beef broccoliBeef Broccoli is probably the most ordered type of Chinese food.  I mean who hasn’t had beef broccoli?

You know that dish with thinly sliced pieces of beef and crunchy broccoli in savory soy sauce, yes that’s beef broccoli.  It’s such a popular dish that I’m pretty sure all Chinese restaurants in the US and possibly around the world have it on their menus.

Beef Broccoli, or as others say Beef with Broccoli, is arguably the most popular stirfry around.  It’s the first thing that pops in our mind when we pick up the phone to order Chinese take-out, stand in line at Panda Express, or sit down at our favorite Chinese restaurant.  But it’s so easy to make at home, that if you’re a real fan you could make it every day if you wanted to.

The secret to this dish is to use flank steak that is sliced very thin against the grain.  Easy right?

Here’s the recipe!

Ingredients:

1 lb flank steak trimmed of fat and sliced thin against the grain

1 head broccoli cut into small florets

1 onion thinly sliced

1/2 cup soy sauce

1 tsp fresh ginger minced

3 tsp minced garlic

2 tbs sesame oil

1/2 cup beef stock

2 tbs cornstarch dissolved in 1/2 cup water

Directions:

Mix soy sauce, ginger, and garlic in a bowl.

Add the beef and toss to cover in sauce mixture.

Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

Heat sesame oil in wok or large skillet.

Add onions and fry about 1 minute.

Add marinated beef and cook about 2-3 minutes stir in constantly.

Stir in beef stock.

Add broccoli and cook until tender.

Slowly stir in cornstarch mixture until the sauce thickens.

Remove from heat and serve with steamed white rice or noodles.
