Stir Fried Beef & Broccoli

on

Definitely not one of my best, the recipe needs more flavor, it was pretty bland and flat, so I am on a quest to find a better Broccoli Beef recipe, share if you have one that’s flavorful!

BEEF:
□ 2 tsp. soy sauce
□ 1/4 tsp. sugar
□ 1/4 tsp. salt
□ 3/4 lb. boneless sirloin, cut across the grain into 1/4 inch thick slices

SAUCE:
□ 1 tbsp. cornstarch
□ 1 tbsp. soy sauce
□ 1 tbsp. med. dry sherry or scotch
□ 1/4 c. chicken or beef broth or water
□ 1 tsp. sugar
□ 2 tsp. Oriental sesame oil

STIR-FRY:
□ 3 tbsp. vegetable oil
□ 1 tbsp. minced peeled fresh ginger root
□ 1 tbsp. minced garlic
□ 1 (4 inch) fresh red chili, seeded and minced (wear rubber gloves)
□ 1/2 tsp. dried hot red pepper flakes
□ 1 lb. broccoli, cut into flowerets and stems peeled and cut into 1/2 inch thick sticks
□ Cooked rice as an accompaniment

Prepare the beef: In a small bowl, stir together the soy sauce, sugar, salt, add the beef and let it marinate for 20 minutes.

Make the sauce while the beef is marinating. In a small bowl, dissolve the cornstarch in the soy sauce and stir in the sherry. Add broth or water, sugar and Oriental sesame oil.

Put 3 tablespoons oil in stir fry pan or wok, add ginger root, garlic, fresh red chili, and broccoli. Finally add beef and cook until meat is ready. Serve with rice.
