Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry



Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry

Very easy and delicious!  You may substitute chicken if you like.  Serve over rice.

  • 1/3 cup oyster sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1/3 cup sherry
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 3/4 lb. beef round steak, cut into 1/8-inch thick strips
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, plus more if needed
  • 1 thin slice fresh ginger root
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and smashed
  • 1 lb. broccoli, cut into florets

Whisk together oyster sauce, sesame oil, sherry, soy sauce, sugar and cornstarch in a bowl, and stir until the sugar has dissolved.  Place steak pieces into a shallow bowl, pour oyster sauce mixture over the meat, stir to coat well, and marinate for at least 30 minutes in refrigerator.

Heat vegetable oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat, and stir in the ginger and garlic.  Let them sizzle in the hot oil for about 1 minute to flavor the oil, then remove and discard.  Stir in the broccoli, and toss and stir in the hot oil until bright green and almost tender, 5 to 7 minutes.  Remove the broccoli from the wok, and set aside.

Pour a little more oil into the wok, if needed, and stir and toss the beef with the marinade until the sauce forms a glaze on the beef, and the meat is not longer pink, about 5 minutes.  Return the cooked broccoli to the wok, and stir until the meat and broccoli are heated through, about 3 minutes.

Serves 4.
