Easy Beef and Broccoli Recipe
 
Easy Beef and Broccoli over piping hot rice to get you through these winter days. Our weather is seriously a bit crazy. Looks more like early spring than winter with new flower slowly peeking out of the ground, and we are having so much rain. I do not remember when was the last time like this in January.
 
Needless to say, this meal heals heart and soul, and we can eat it year-round, right?!
As much as I love a good takeout over the weekend, I really don’t see the reason why people don’t make “takeouts” at home because they are so simple.

Just like so many amazingly delicious Asian-influenced meals that I’ve shared over the years, this one is as easy as it sounds and so delicious. After I cook it, my wok goes in the middle of the table and it would be completely clean in less than 20 minutes. My family is obsessed with meals like this. They are super simple and extremely delicious.

You can most definitely use chicken or pork instead of beef. It really comes down to what you have in your fridge or prefers. Also, If you do not eat a meal I am suggesting adding organic tofu.

Yield: 4
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Additional Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 lb Beef thinly sliced
  • 3 tbsp. Soy Sauce lite
  • 1 tbsp. Oil
  • 1 tbsp. Fresh Ginger
  • 1/2 tbsp. Garlic
  • 2 cups Water
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 390 g/13 oz Broccoli
  • 1 tbsp. Oil
  • 1/2 tbsp. Garlic

Sauce:

  • 1 tbsp. Soy Sauce Lite
  • 1 tbsp. Oyster Sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp. Sesame Seed Oil
  • 1/2 tbsp. Chinese Cooking Wine / or Mirin - Japanese rice wine
  • 1 tbsp. Cornstarch or all-purpose flour

Garnish:

  • 2 Green Onions
  • Toasted Sesame Seeds

Instructions

  1. Slice beef into thin, bite-size pieces. Asian stores carry already thinly sliced cuts, but if you are unable to find it, slightly freeze your beef and against the grain, and with the sharp knife slice beef.
  2. Marinate: 3 tbsp. Soy Sauce lite, 1 tbsp. Oil, 1 tbsp. Fresh Ginger, and 1/2 tbsp. Garlic. Mix it together to coat. Marinate beef for about 15 minutes (you can go up to 30, but make sure to place it in the fridge if you going to marinate longer).
  3. Cut the bottom of the broccoli, and diagonal slice them. You can use florets or use the whole, just cut about an inch off the bottom.
  4. Boil 2 cups of water, season with salt, and drop broccoli in. Blanch broccoli for about 1 minute. We want crispy broccoli, so as soon as that minute pass, drain and either submerge under cold iced water or wash under cold water.
  5. Heat skillet over medium-high heat, add oil and garlic. Saute garlic for 20-30 seconds, then add marinated beef.
  6. Cook meat for about 5 minutes or until it is completely done.
  7. Meanwhile, mix together sauce: 1 tbsp. Soy Sauce Lite, 1/2 tbsp. Sesame Seed Oil, 1/2 tbsp. Chinese Cooking Wine / or Mirin - Japanese rice wine, 1 tbsp. Cornstarch or all-purpose flour.
  8. Pour the sauce over cooked beef. Cook for about 2 min or less, until it thickens
  9. Add broccoli and toss everything together.
  10. Garnish with chopped green onions and toasted sesame seeds. You can also drizzle some sesame oil as well.
