Directions

Cut the steak across the grain into strips 3 inches long and 1/4 inch thick. In a bowl, stir together the cornstarch, salt, sugar, baking soda and 2 Tbs. water. Add the beef and stir until well mixed. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the sauce: In a bowl, combine the oyster sauce, dark and light soy sauces, peanut oil, cornstarch, sugar, white pepper and 2 Tbs. water. Set aside.

Bring a saucepan three-fourths full of water to a boil over high heat. Add the broccoli florets and blanch until just tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain, rinse under running cold water until cool and drain again. Set aside.

Remove the beef from the bowl and pat dry with paper towels. In a wok or large, deep sauté pan over high heat, warm 2 Tbs. of the peanut oil until very hot. Add the beef and stir-fry until it just turns opaque, 3 to 4 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, quickly transfer the beef to a sieve placed over a bowl to drain.

Wipe out the pan with paper towels and reheat over high heat. Add the remaining 1 Tbs. oil and heat until very hot. Add the onion and stir-fry until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic to the onion, and stir-fry until golden, about 30 seconds more.

Add the sauce to the pan, stir and bring to a boil. Immediately add the beef and broccoli and stir-fry until the sauce thickens and the beef is heated through, about 3 minutes. Transfer the beef and broccoli to a warmed bowl and serve.

  • This is awesome! A novice at Oriental cooking, The detailed instructions were a godsend. It is delicious, and I can see where it is a solid, basic recipe for stir frying any meat and vegetable combination. I added celery and mushrooms that would have been thrown away in a few days. YUM. - 1/19/13

  • Delicious dish.
    I too did not parboil the brocolli. Added it to the onions once they were caramelized. Added a bit of water to steam a couple of minutes. Then added in the beef and sauce to thicken.
    I also doubled the brocolli because I love my vegies. Works fine. - 1/12/13

  • Tastes just like a restaurant. I don't parboil the brocolli though. I just throw it in with the meat and onions and put a bit of water, cover and steam for about 3 minutes. The vegetables are a bit crunchy and oh so yummy. - 9/27/08
