  • wok


  • 1 pound flank steak thinly sliced across the grain
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch dissolved in 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon rice wine or water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • fresh ground pepper to taste
  • Sauce:
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon rice wine or water
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup beef broth
  • 1 pound broccoli florets
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 green pepper seeded and cut into slices
  • 1 clove garlic very thinly sliced
  • 1 green onion sliced


  • Start by marinating the beef; mix together cornstarch mixture, soy sauce, rice wine or water, salt and pepper in a bowl, add the sliced beef and stir to coat the slices. Let stand for 30 minutes while you prepare the sauce and blanch the broccoli.
  • Make sauce by mixing the oyster sauce, rice wine or water, soy sauce and chicken broth in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • Place broccoli in salted boiling water for 2 minutes, remove the broccoli from the boiling water with a large Chinese wire mesh skimmer/strainer and immediately submerge the broccoli into a large bowl filled with ice cubes and cold water. Submerge for 10 seconds. Remove the broccoli with wire mesh skimmer/strainer from the cold water, drain well and set aside.
  • Heat a large frying pan or wok over high heat until a bead of water sizzles and instantly evaporates upon contact, add oil and swirl to coat pan or wok. Add bell pepper strips, cook for a few minutes. Remove and set aside. Heat pan again and add meat slices, let the beef fry for 1 minute. Flip the beef strips over and add the garlic, sliced green onion, if using, reserved bell pepper strips and fry for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  • Pour in sauce, add broccoli and bring to a boil. Pour in dissolved cornstarch in water and cook stirring until sauce boils and thickens, about 30 seconds.
  • Served this wonderful Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry over Jasmine Rice.
