The secret to this recipe is cooking the beef in 1 cup of oil to seal in the juices, and cooking the broccoli in water to make it crisp and tender. For a more authentic touch, try using Chinese broccoli, which has an appearance and taste similar to asparagus.
neini ,Awesome recipe. Loved it. No more chinese restaurant. Cook it healthier and I know what am making.
majorcooking ,This is the best beef and broccoli ever. I only used one type of soy sauce and it came out fine. Also I used a 1tbls and 1tsp of rice vinegar in the marinade .
mogriff1 ,Amazing taste! But I doubled the garlic. To cook the meat I only used a 1/4 cup of oil (sesame/peanut) vs the 1 cup and halved the oil the other times the recipe called for it. Im my opinion it was more than enough. I served over brown rice and with egg rolls. We really enjoyed this dish! One of the best tasting beef and broccoli dishes I've eaten. Many steps, but oh so worth it!
bvanhoogten ,Very good!!! I didn't have oyster sauce so I left it out. I used brown sugar and added ground ginger to meat marinade. Instead of boiling my veggies, I added 2 tblsp sesame oil to my wok on quick stir fried my veggies, see my picture. I added broccoli, green onion, carrots, and sprinkled w a little more rice vinegar, soy sauce, and gonger. I then added my cooked meat and tossed around to mix up and served over white rice. Thanks for sharing!!!
krazyblondekodi ,Very good! A bit messy but sure after I make it a few times I'll get it down like a pro. Highly recommend!!!
gsangel ,I LOVE this recipe!!! I absolutely love Broccoli Beef & have always wanted to know how to make it. This recipe was totally DELISH!! The key is the sugar!! I didn't have oyster sauce, so used stir fry sauce. Also, I am a little unclear on what is meant by "light" vs "dark" soy sauce. I struggled with that until I decided just to use "light" on salt soy sauce for the "light" & to just use regular for the "dark".
jleong1920 ,Because I didn't have a taste for broccoli when I made this, I used the recipe to make Chinese pepper steak instead. I followed the recipe up until it called for broccoli. I also didn't clean out the pan after removing the beef. I sauted like 1/2 a yellow onion before adding 2 small to medium sized green peppers (both roughly chopped) until tender. I let the onions get a head start so the peppers would still have a slight crunch. After they were finished, I removed them and deglazed the pan with about 1/2c. of sherry. Scraping up the brown bits and after the alcohol has cooked off add everything back into the pan as in step #9 (w/o the oil) and let thicken. Enjoy over steamed rice.
lady_kjw ,My husband and I loved this recipe. It was easy to make and tasted great. I would recommend trying this recipe to anyone who enjoys beef with broccoli!
