Beef and Broccoli
I love any kind of Asian food but it is hard to find a good restaurant.
This recipe is really good but takes a little prep time. After forty years of Chinese cooking I finally realized this is very important because everything is cooked at a high heat.
2 tablespoons corn starch
4 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
4 tablespoons water
2 cloves minced garlic
One pound thin sliced lean London broil steak
One teaspoon sesame oil
Two tablespoons canola oil
6 cups broccoli cut into bite size pieces
2 cloves chopped garlic
One large sliced onion
One heaping tablespoon brown sugar, do not use white
1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
One teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1 1/2 tablespoon corn starch
White rice or lo mein
Combine the 2 tablespoons corn starch,water, soy sauce and garlic and mix well. It will be thick.
Add the sliced beef and coat the meat well. Set aside.
Mix the 1/2 cup soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger and 1 1/2 tablespoon corn starch. Set aside.
Heat a large non stick wok with the 2 tablespoons canola oil and one tablespoon sesame oil.
Place the beef in the pan and don’t move it till you have a nice brown crust on one side and then stir fry the rest till medium well.
Take out of the pan and set aside
Add another tablespoon oil in the pan and stir fry the onion till they are still crisp about two minute . Place over the beef
Stir fry the broccoli with one tablespoon oil and one teaspoon sesame oil till bright green and crisp.About 3 to 4 minutes. Set aside in a separate bowl
Put the beef and onion in a pan and add the reserved soy sauce mixture and cook on medium high till it thickens
Add the broccoli at the end to just heat it up again
Serve with rice, eggrolls or wontons
I added the broccoli into the meat the first time I made this and it was too mushy as you can see it the picture
