Stir-Fried Beef And Broccoli



Beef and Broccoli stir-fry is not a dish, that I grew up with. In fact, I first discovered it when I was living in New York, well, it's a long time ago. This is an incredibly easy American Chinese stir-fry and full of flavor. As for stir-frying, always have all your ingredients ready and cooking should be a cinch. 





Stir-Fried Beef And Broccoli

Ingredients

300 g Sirloin Steak, thinly sliced
About 400 g Broccoli, cut into smaller florets, blanched, & drained
3 Cloves Garlic, chopped
1 ½ Tbsp Chopped Ginger
2 tsp Soy Sauce
½ tsp Dark Soy Sauce
1 Tbsp Corn Flour/Starch
1 tsp Sesame Oil
Ground White Pepper
Sea Salt, to taste
Peanut Oil, for cooking

Sauce
2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
1 tsp Dark Soy sauce
2 tsp Oyster Sauce
2 tsp Shaoxing Wine
2 ½ Tbsp Water
½ tsp Corn Flour/Starch

Method

Marinate beef with 1 ½ tsp chopped ginger, 1 Tbsp corn flour, 1 tsp soy sauce, ½ tsp dark soy sauce, 1/2 tsp sesame oil, and some white pepper. Mix well and let it marinate for about 20 minutes.

Heat wok over very high heat. Add some peanut oil, swirl to coat the wok, remove excess oil. Toss in the blanched broccoli, give it a quick stir, and set aside.

Reheat the wok over high heat again. Add about 1 ½ Tbsp of peanut oil and swirl to coat the wok. Mix in the marinated beef slices; follow by garlic, and remainder ginger. Stir until the garlic and ginger are fragrant. Then add the prepared sauce and some white pepper, and bring it to a boil. Toss in the broccoli, and stir all the ingredients together until well mixed. The sauce should be thickened and the broccoli is cooked but still firm. Serve immediately.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
