Lazy Beef and Broccoli

Really tired today so decided on an easy one.

There was a really awesome deal on sirloin steaks at the store last week, so I got three of them, so I apologize for having another "thinly sliced beef" this week.

Beef and Broccoli (adapted from here)

1 pound broccoli, cut into florets
1 pound sirloin or london broil, trimmed of fat and sliced thinly against the grain
1/3 cup oyster sauce
2 teaspoons Asian (toasted) sesame oil
1/3 cup sherry
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon corn syrup
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 clove garlic and an equal amount of fresh ginger (about a half inch), minced


Start by heating some oil in your "wok-like-pan" and toss in the broccoli. 

It'll take 5-8 minutes to get them *nearly* cooked. You want them bright green, but not soggy yet. It will also help to get your tossing motion down, as it's kind of hard to toss the broccoli with a spatula.

When your broccoli is done, remove it from the pan and get your steak ready.

Toss the steak in and cook until it's no longer pink. (Mine was marinated, that's why it looks like that. It was an unnecessary step, so ignore.)

Done beef
Pour in the sauce, the ginger and the garlic.

Cook until it thickens, about 3 minutes, then toss in broccoli.

Toss to combine and toss on a shake of sesame seeds.

Serve with rice.



  1. I am intimidated by fresh ginger.

    and your broccoli tossing skills.

    I'm loving all these great recipes!

  2. fresh ginger is easy! it tastes better than the bottled stuff and it's easier to mince than garlic! all you have to do is cut off a nub and cut off then peel it. and if you have a microplane you can just grate it. super easy and worth using.

    and tossing skills improve with practice.

    and yay! i have one for tonight that's always a hit.
