Hey, I never tried this recipe. I found it on whenever I was looking for the nutritional analysis on the Beef and Broccoli Stir fry I had eaten at a Chinese restaurant. I absolutely LOVE that stuff. It's the greatest stuff. So you know that this has to be good. The prep time and cook time is unknown. If you could please tell us that would nice.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all marinade ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Combine all seasoning sauce ingredients in a cup.
  3. Thoroughly mix beef with marinade and marinate for 30 minutes.
  4. Heat wok over highest heat, when hot, swirl in 2 Tbsp peanut oil.
  5. Add ginger and salt and toss a few seconds.
  6. Add broccoli and stir fry one minute, then add water, turn heat to med-high, cover, and steam until crisp tender.
  7. Uncover and turn heat to high, stir frying until water is evaporated.
  8. Remove broccoli and reserve.
  9. Reheat same wok (without rinsing) and, when hot, add remaining peanut oil.
  10. Add beef slices and stir fry until lightly browned but not cooked through.
  11. Do not stir fry too vigorously or meat will not brown, it is better to press slices against sides of wok to sear.
  12. Add broccoli to wok and toss.
  13. When hot, stir in seasoning sauce and stir until sauce thickens (it's a good idea to whisk the sauce in the cup just before you hurl it into the wok).
  14. Turn onto a platter and drizzle sesame oil over the top.
  15. The sugar in the marinade and seasoning sauce acts as a flavor enhancer rather than a sweetener.

I've made similar recipes that went well after cooking it a few times, so I chose this one to work with. I added more ingredients (onion, mushrooms, garlic, etc)and substituded white cooking wine for rice wine. It worked very well and I particularly like how the broccoli turned out! After getting used to this type of cooking, particularly the cornstarch sauce getting cooked into the ingredients, it works very well and tastes great!

Recipe turned out very well. Easy to make. I did have to substitute soy sauce for the Oyster Sauce since I couldn't obtain any locally. I also used marsala wine cooking wine since I was out of rice wine. It was delicious. One slight correction, the broccoli is not part of the marinade.

This was an easy recipe to put together. I did add carrots, onions and garlic, just a habit of mine. Not sure if it tastes like take-out, I've never had beef and broccoli as take-out but it sure was good! Thanks.
