Beef and Broccoli

I made something epic for dinner last night. And I swear, my stomach just growled in thinking about it.

Don't over cook the broccoli! The slight crunch contrasts beautifully with the tender beef.

Beef and Broccoli
Rainy Day Gal
Serves 4

marinade for beef:
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon water
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 1/2 lbs steak, sliced thinly

for the sauce:
1/4 cup soy sauce
2-3 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons brown sugar
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons flour

3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 small onion, diced
2 heads broccoli crowns

Whisk together marinade ingredients and toss with sliced steak. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour.

In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, water, brown sugar, garlic, and flour until smooth. Set aside.

In a large wok or saute pan, heat 2 tablespoons of the vegetable oil over medium high heat until shimmering. Add broccoli and diced onion and quickly saute 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove to a plate.

Cautiously add remaining oil to the hot pan. Add marinated meat and half the sauce mixture and saute 3-4 minutes, stirring often, until the meat is no longer pink. Add broccoli and onion to the pan with remaining sauce, and saute 1 minute till heated through.

Serve over rice, if desired.

  2. as me and my sisters say..."Stupid Easy!"..and the flavour is a killer! found this, fam asked for me to make something w/ beef and broccoli..and hey presto! thanks!

  3. thanks for the heads up on sodium..i used a low sodium soy sauce..a little less...and the only thing i changed was cornstarch in the sauce instead of flour,oh, and added a 1/2 teasp of toasted sesame oil...smells like a 4 star chinese reataurant in here! I shoulda made MORE!!!

  4. Just a side note if you're wondering about sodium in the soy sauce - try Bragg's low sodium soy seasoning, the vegetarian/vegan version. Delicious, very low sodium, gluten free...not cheap, but definitely a healthier alternative.
