Beef and broccoli are a staple found in almost every Chinese-American restaurant or takeaway. I love Beef and Broccoli because (a) I can’t resist the tender, flavorful strips of steak and (b) it’s a super easy stir fry recipe that takes less than 30 minutes total. And if you’re a big broccoli fan like me, you’ll love these juicy, flavorful pieces of broccoli sandwiched between meat and rice bites.
- 1 pound flank steak sliced into 1/4 inch thick strips
- 3 cups small broccoli florets
- 1/2 cup beef stock
- 5 cloves garlic minced
- 2 tablespoons corn starch
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
FOR THE SAUCE:
- 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
In a large bowl, combine ground beef and cornstarch.
Heat the rapeseed oil in a pan over medium heat for a few minutes. Add the beef slices and cook, stirring frequently, until browned, a few minutes. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
Add the broccoli and garlic to the pan and stir.Add the meat broth. Simmer until the broccoli is tender, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
While you are waiting for the broccoli to cook, put all the sauce ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
Add the reserved meat and sauce to the pan and stir. Simmer for 5 minutes to thicken the sauce slightly.
Serve beef and broccoli with cooked white rice.
