Anyone care to share theirs? Mine is beef and broccoli.


Beef 'n' Broccoli 


Prep Time: 10 minutes + 1 hour(or more) for marinade 


Cook Time: 8 minutes 


First, marinate the meat: 

Marinade: 

1/2 tsp baking soda 

1 tsp sugar 

1 tbsp cornstarch or 2 tbsp white flour 

1 tbsp soy sauce 

2 tbsp water 

2 tbsp vegetable oil 

1 1/2 lbs flank steak, sliced into thin strips(other cuts may work as well. Braising/marinading beef works quite well) 

1. Whisk together the baking soda, sugar, cornstarch, soy sauce, water, and vegetable oil in a large bowl. Toss the steak with the marinade to coat. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour, then proceed below. 


Sauce: 

1/3 c soy sauce 

2 tbsp brown sugar 

4 cloves garlic, minced or 1 tbsp of minced garlic 

2 tbsp flour 

1 tbsp sherry (optional but preferred) 

3 tbsp vegetable oil 

2 heads broccoli, crowns only or a bag of frozen broccoli 


1. In a small bowl, stir together the soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, flour and sherry until smooth. Set aside. 

2. In a large wok or sautépan, heat 2 tablespoons of the vegetable oil over high heat until shimmering.Add broccoli and sauté 3 minutes, stirring often. Transfer broccoli to a plate. 

3. Reduce heat to medium-high. Carefully add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the hot pan. Add the marinated meat and half of the sauce mixture and sauté for 3-4 minutes, stirring often, until the meat is cooked through and no longer pink. Stir in the broccoli and remaining sauce. Sauté 1 minute more. Serve.
