Absolutely wonderful!! I used Golden Lantern garlic flavoured Wok oil to stir fry this. I also added some cauliflower - WOW!! This is great - the meat is tender and the veggies come out crisp! I wasn't sure when to add the soya sauce - so I added it at the end with the final toss. As well, I found that I only needed 2 Tbsp of oil for the entire process. This is a keeper - I will make this again!!
FANTASTIC and so so simple! I had no sherry so i just used a bit of soy sauce and sprinkled a bit of seasoned garlic salt along with the cornstarch on the meat. It came out great. It was a smash hit. we won't need to be ordering takeout next time we get a craving for a good chinese dish. Thanks so much for posting.
I've made beef and broccoli before but the beef always turns out chewy and the broccoli over cooked. Follow this recipe and you shall have success. It is delicious.
