Beef and Broccoli With Oyster Sauce

This is from the Williams-Sonoma Cookbook, and it is SOOOOOO good! *I made this using top sirloin instead of the flank steak. Also to cut some cooking time instead of boiling the broccoli, I microwaved it for 2 minutes in a bowl with a tablespoon of water covered in saran wrap.

Directions

  1. Cut the steak across the grain into strips 3 inches long and 1/4 inch wide.
  2. In a bowl, stir together the 1 Tbsp cornstarch, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp sugar, the baking soda, and 2 Tbsp water. Add the beef and stir until well mixed. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  3. In another bowl, combine the oyster sauce, both soys, 1 tsp oil, the remaining 1 tsp cornstarch, the remaining 1/2 tsp sugar, white pepper to taste, and 2 Tbsp water, st aside. Bring a sauce pan 3/4 full of water to boil, and add broccoli florets, blanch until just tender 3-4 minutes. Drain, rinse under cold water until cool, then drain again. Set aside.
  4. Remove the beef from the bowl and pat dry with paper towels. In a wok or large, deep saute pan over high heat, heat 2 Tbsp of peanut oil until very hot. Add the beef and stir fry until opaque, 3-4 mintues. Using a slotted spoon, quickly transfer the beef to a sieve placed over a bowl to drain.
  5. Wipe out the pan with paper towels and reheat over high heat. Add the remianing 1 Tbsp oil and heat until very hot. Add garlic, and ginger and stir fry just until golden brown, 15-20 sec. Using slottted spoon, lift out the ginger and garlic and discard. Add the onion to the pan and cook until just tender, about 5 minutes. Pour in the rice wine and deglaze the pan stirring to dislodge any brown bits on the bottom. When the wine has evaporated, add the sauce, stir, and bring to a boil. Immediately add the beef and broccoli and stir fry until the sauce thickens and the beef is heated through, about 3 minute Transfer to a warm bowl and serve.

Wow! I fired up the wok and fell in love with your recipe. There are only 3 in our family, 2 being children. NO LEFT OVERS! That, to me, is the ultimate compliment! Thanks bunches!

OH MY! This was so delicious! I followed your recipe to a T (including the bit on preparing the broccoli in the microwave which I will now always do!), and it turned out so delicious! I think I got about two bites in, and the family killed the rest! I'll be making this one again and again...Thanks Japanese Delight :)
