Beef N' Broccoli Done Right

Recipe by Nyx9013
READY IN: 25mins




  • Marinate beef: Stir the 1 teaspoon soy sauce, 1 teaspoon rice vinegar, potato starch (corn starch is fine, too) and black pepper in a medium bowl and add the beef. Leave for 10 minutes.
  • Blanche the broccoli (which just means to bring water in a pot to a boil, add broccoli and a dash of salt then immediately turn off heat and pour the broccoli into a colander - do not let the broccoli sit, so as to avoid loss of crispiness and losing the bright green color you should now get).
  • Heat large frying pan or wok until water sizzles instantly, or evaporates upon contact.
  • Add cooking oil and stir to coat (for me that's about 2 tablespoons olive oil).
  • Add beef, immediately spread beef out all over surface in single layer (preferably not touching) and leave for 1 minute.
  • Flip, add garlic for 30 seconds to 1 minute until no longer pink.
  • Pour on sauce. Add broccoli and bring to a boil.
  • Pour in dissolved potato starch and cook, stirring the sauce for 30 seconds.
  • Serve over rice immediately and for some umph, garnish with sesame seeds.
