Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 lb your favorite cut of beef, sliced thinly
  • 1 lb broccoli, cut into bite-sized pieces (slice the stems into thin matchsticks)
  • 4 cloves garlic, sliced thinly
  • 1/4-inch ginger, sliced thinly
  • 4 green onions, chopped into 1-inch long pieces

Stir-Fry Sauce

  • 1/4 cup oyster sauce
  • 1 tbsp black bean sauce (optional)
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp dark soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp sake or Chinese cooking wine
  • 2 tsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp black ground pepper
  • 1 tsp cornstarch

Instructions

  • Mix together all the ingredients for the stir-fry sauce.
  • Marinate the beef slices with 1 tbsp of the sauce. Allow to marinate for 5-10 minutes.
  • In a large wok over medium-high heat, add the oil, garlic, ginger, and broccoli. Stir-fry for 3-4 minutes, or until the broccoli starts to become more tender. Then spread the vegetables to the sides of the wok. Add the beef in the center and spread the slices out on the pan.
    (The more contact the beef has with the pan, the less stewing you will have.)
  • Allow the beef to sear for 1 minute, before you mix everything together. Continue to cook until the beef is nearly cooked. Then add the stir-fry sauce. Cook until the sauce is thickened.
  • Add the green onion pieces and cook for 30 seconds.
    Remove from heat and serve with rice.

Notes

You can use any variety of steak for this recipe. Sirloin, strip, flank or skirt all work great. Make sure to slice them thinly against the grain for the best texture.
