This is one of the most delicious things you can do with broccoli—and it’s so quick to prepare. Ginger, oyster sauce, garlic, and soy sauce infuse the beef and broccoli with Asian flavors. Just add rice to complete this all-in-one-wok meal.
Prep Time:10 minutes
Cook Time:20 minutes
Total Time:30 minutes
1 1/4pounds flank steak, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon vegetable oil, divided use
2 cups broccoli florets
2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 cup oyster sauce
1/4 cup beef broth or water
1 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon cornstarch
Salt and pepper to taste
Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the broccoli and cook for approximately 4 minutes or until tender.
Add the ginger and garlic to the pan and cook for 30 seconds more.
Remove the broccoli from the pan; place on a plate and cover.
Wipe the pan clean with a paper towel and turn the heat to high. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil.
Season the steak pieces with salt and pepper and add them to the pan in a single layer—you may need to do this step in batches. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side until browned and cooked through.
Add the broccoli mixture back to the pan and cook for 2 more minutes or until warmed through.
In a bowl whisk together the oyster sauce, beef broth, sugar, sesame oil, and soy sauce. In a small bowl, mix the cornstarch with a tablespoon of cold water.
Pour the oyster sauce mixture over the beef and vegetables; cook for 30 seconds. Add the cornstarch and bring to a boil; cook for 1 more minute or until sauce has just started to thicken.
