Beef and broccoli is always a popular dish, and for good reason. Juicy steak plus crunchy broccoli is a match made in heaven.

What You Need

  • 1/3 cup oyster sauce
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1/3 cup sherry
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 3/4 pound beef flank steak, sliced into 1/8-inch thick cuts
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, more if needed
  • 1 thin slice of fresh ginger root
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and smashed
  • 1 pound broccoli, sliced into florets

How To Make It

  1. In a bowl, combine oyster sauce, sesame oil, sherry, soy sauce, sugar, and cornstarch until sugar and cornstarch are dissolved.
  2. Place steak pieces in a large, shallow bowl. Pour over the oyster sauce mixture and coat steak pieces completely. Refrigerate to marinate for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Add vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add ginger and garlic and stir. Allow them to sizzle in the hot oil to flavor it, about 1 minute. Remove and discard ginger and garlic.
  4. Add the broccoli and stir until vibrant green and slightly tender, about 5 to 7 minutes. Take the broccoli out and set it aside.
  5. Add more oil into the wok if needed. Add the beef and marinade. Stir until the meat has browned, and the sauce is reduced into a glaze, about 5 minutes.
  6. Add the cooked broccoli. Stir meat and broccoli until heated through, about 3 minutes.
