This is definitely one of my son’s favorites, at home or a restaurant. I love the bright broccoli and the tenderness of the beef. The two are married perfectly together in this Beef with Broccoli recipe. Look over the recipe, it really is simple to make and it’s one of my goto dishes for a weeknight. The best thing to do is to slice the beef in advance and marinade it so you can throw this dish together in 20 minutes, the time it takes for the rice to cook.
Mix together marinated beef and cornstarch in bowl and set aside.
In small bowl, mix together beef broth, oyster sauce, soy sauce and sugar. Set aside.
In large pan or wok, heat 1 Tbl oil. Add green onions and broccoli and cook on high, stirring constantly, until broccoli is bright green. Do not overcook. It shouldn't take more than 2 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside for adding back to dish after next step.
In the same pan (no need to clean), heat 2 Tbl oil. Add beef mixture and cook on high, stirring constantly, until browned.
Keeping the beef in the pan, add the liquid mixture and heat to bubbling, stirring constantly. Should take about 1 minute. Cook for about 30 more seconds after it reaches bubbly state.
Add back in the broccoli to the beef and mix to just coat the broccoli and bring it back to temperature. Do not overcook! The broccoli can quickly go from bright green to brown and soggy. The goal here is just get it tossed together. Remove from pan and serve. Best when served over rice.
Mix everything together, cover and refrigerate until ready to use. Most stir fry recipes will take about 1/2-3/4 pounds of beef.
