beefandbrocolli.jpg This is my own recipe based on my experience cooking several Chinese dishes from various cookbooks.

  • 1lb thinly sliced beef (I used sirloin)
  • 2 sprigs of fresh broccoli (including the stems)
  • 1 teaspoon of minced fresh ginger
  • 4 cloves of garlic minced
  • peanut oil


  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons arrowroot powder
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine


  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine
  • 1/4 cup of chicken or beef stock
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil

Mix marinade ingredients and stir into sliced beef. Let stand for at least 20 minutes.

Mix sauce ingredients and set aside.

Coat the bottom of a saute pan (a wok would be nice, but use what you have) with the peanut oil. Heat to medium-high. When the oil is hot add the ginger and garlic and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Pour in the beef and marinade and stir-fry until brown. Add the broccoli and continue stirring for 2 minutes. Make a well in the center and pour in the sauce. Stir for another couple minutes until broccoli is just becoming tender. Salt to taste.

Serve with brown rice.

UPDATE (9/15/2007): The original was way too salty. I have changed the recipe above to be less salty.
