Beef & Broccoli a Chinese restaurant favorite for take out. Now it is time for you to have this wonderful meal at home.
A few years ago my brother was home from college and he requested that I make Beef & Broccoli for dinner. I went to Pinterest to search as Asian food is not my strong point. There I found this recipe by Rainy Day Gal (Jenny Miller). Despite its 1 hour marinade time this dish is quick. It is great for a night in which you have a a few minutes to get something together before running out for a practice then coming back and having it ready in 10 minutes. For those nights I have frozen brown rice stock piled in my freezer. While I prefer everything fresh and homemade it isn’t always possible on a working parents time frame.
Beef & Broccoli
Time to satisfy your craving and make a dish even the kids will love. Serve over white or brown rice.
Whisk together the baking soda, sugar, cornstarch, soy sauce, water, and
vegetable oil in a large bowl. Toss the steak with the marinade to coat. Cover
and refrigerate at least 1 hour, then proceed below.
In a small bowl, stir together the soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, flour and sherry
until smooth. Set aside.
In a large wok or saute pan, heat 2 tablespoons of the vegetable oil over high
heat until shimmering. Add broccoli and saute 3 minutes, stirring often. Transfer
broccoli to a plate.
Reduce heat to medium high. Carefully add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the hot pan. Add the marinated meat and half of the sauce mixture and saute for 3-4 minutes, stirring often, until the meat is cooked through and no longer pink. Stir in the broccoli and remaining sauce. Saute 1 minute more. Serve
