Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry

One of these days I'll write an ode to Broccoli, because of all the Veges I love, I truly believe I love her (Broccoli) the most. Call me weird if you like, but there's just something about Broccoli that makes it an elite vege and of course the health benefits are extensive. Now if you're a lover of Asian style cuisine like myself and a Broccoli lover like myself and a busy human like myself then this recipe is surely for you. A quick stir fry that's big in flavors and healthy enough to qualify as well...a healthy meal. Here's my recipe folks and I do hope you enjoy.


1 1/2 lbs thinly sliced Beef

4 tbsp Olive Oil (separated 2×2)

4 cups Broccoli florets

1 small Carrot julienne

1 small Onion sliced

3 teaspoons minced fresh Ginger

3 cloves minced Garlic

1/4 cup Oyster Sauce

1/4 tsp Salt

1/4 tsp Black Pepper

1/4 cup Water

1 teaspoon Sugar

2 teaspoons Sesame Oil

1 teaspoon Soy Sauce

2 teaspoon Cornstarch

1/2 tsp Red Pepper Flakes

Salt to taste


●Season beef slices with 1/4 tsp salt and black pepper and set aside.

●Place medium sized wok or frying pan on medium heat and add 2 tbsp olive oil.

●Once oil is hot add onions and garlic sauteing for a apprx 30 seconds before you add your ginger cooking for a few more seconds till everything is really fragrant.

●Add Broccoli and Carrots and mix well allow to cook for 4-6 mins until both begin to soften but isn't cooked all the way through. Remove from pan to a heat safe dish and set aside.

●Add remaining 2 tbsp olive oil to wok and once oil is hot add beef strips. Ensure all the beef is laying flat in the pan to ensure it cools well.

●Once all the strips are no longer pink and is now cooked add the broccoli back into the pan and mix. Be sure to lower heat.
