I learned to cook this recipe from Stephen Yan many years ago. He was famous for his Television Shows -WOK WITH YAN.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a mixing bowl, mix together soy sauce, pepper, Sambal Oelek, sesame oil and corn starch.
  2. Add sliced beef, coat well and let marinate for 15 minutes.
  3. In a WOK, heat 2 tablespoons of peanut oil until smoke begins to rise.
  4. Add broccoli florets and salt, stir well.
  5. Now add 1/2 cup of water, cover with a lid and cook on high heat for 3 - 4 minutes or until steam starts to escape from the edge of the lid.
  6. Remove broccoli and any liquid to a bowl.
  7. Reheat WOK to high heat, add the remainder 2 tablespoons of peanut oil.
  8. When hot, add garlic and brown for 1 minute, stirring often.
  9. Add sliced beef and marinade and stir-fry until the color of meat changes, about 1 minute.

great recipe. great flavours. I may have used slightly different amounts of things as I used it as a guide but worked out great, it disappeared very quickly at the dinner table. I remember Wok with Yan as a kid on TV.

Simple, quick and delicious! I used beef broth instead of water just because I had fresh broth on hand. I also reduced the salt as we're on a low salt diet. The family really enjoyed this!!

This was good, but defintiely felt like it needed "something". I didn't add the sambal oelek though, so maybe that would have done it!
