Beef and Broccoli


1 1/2 pounds of broccoli, (cleaned and cut into 1 1/2 inch florets)

1 1/2 pounds striploin steak (ask for it thick cut to 1 1/2 inches)

salt and pepper to season

2 cloves minced garlic

2 tbsp peanut oil

1/4 tsp freshly ground nutmeg

1/2 tsp chinese five spice powder

1/2 tsp fresh grated ginger

4 tbsp hoisin sauce

2 tbsp oyster sauce

2/3 cup beef stock

Cornstarch Slurry ( 1 tbsp cornstarch dissolved in 3 tbsp cold water)


Steam the brocolli florets for only about 3 to 4 minutes. Drop the steamed florets into a big bowl of ice water to stop th e cooking action. Drain the florets from the cold water and set aside.

Slice the beef accross the grain in thin slices. Heat the peanut oil in a wok at the highest heat. Lightly season the beef strips with salt and pepper and cook the beef strips in small batches for only a couple of minutes in the wok. Set aside.

Saute the minced garlic in the wok for a minute before adding the freshly ground nutmeg, chinese five spice powder, fresh grated ginger , hoisin sauce, oyster sauce and beef stock. Simmer together for a few minutes before adding enough of the cornstarch slurry to thicken the sauce. Taste the sauce and do a final seasoning with salt and pepper if necessary. Add:

1 tsp toasted sesame oil

Toss the cooked beef strips and broccoli back into the sauce and toss together over high heat only for a minute until the broccoli is heated through. Serve over rice or chinese noodles. Toasted cashews make a nice garnish too.
