beef and broc

Beef and broccoli is a popular Chinese recipe. This is my go-to recipe when I want Chinese food without having to go out. Very easy and delicious. Beef and broccoli is great with fried rice.

First, marinate the meat:

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon sugar

1 tablespoon cornstarch

1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce

1 tablespoon water

2 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 1/2 lbs flank steak, sliced into thin strips

1. 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.

1/2 c low-sodium soy sauce (Do NOT use regular. The final product will be way too salty)

2 tablespoon brown sugar

4 cloves garlic, minced

2 tablespoon flour

1 tablespoon sherry

3 tablespoon vegetable oil

2 heads broccoli, crowns only

1. In a small bowl, stir together the soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, flour and sherry

until smooth. Set aside.

2. 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.

3. 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.
