Yum! We really enjoyed this! I did make a couple of changes... the 2 Tablespoons oil it calls for to stir fry the meat in I used half olive and half sesame and to the sauce I added a tablespoon of brown sugar. I doubled the amount of sauce as well and was glad I did. When I make it again I'll add more broccoli just as a personal choice. I served this over white rice and we just loved it. Such an easy recipe that comes together quickly ~ thank you for sharing ~ will definitely be made and enjoyed here again! :)
I loved this, and so did hubby. It was easy to prepare, quick, and tasty. However, I think it really is only 2 servings, not 4. Instead of flank steak, I used NY strip steak. Whatever meat you use, make it easy on yourself and slice it partially frozen. I accidentally poured about double the amount of sherry (I didn't have rice wine) in the sauce, but that was no problem. There was a lot of evaporation anyway, and the flavor was just fine, if maybe a bit weak on the oyster sauce due to the extra sherry. I only had 1 stalk of broccoli, so I added about 1 cup of cauliflower to make up the difference. It was tasty. You could make this with all cauliflower, but it would not be as pretty, because the cauliflower turned brown from the sauce. The green broccoli is what makes this a pretty dish. This is a keeper.
