Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry

Beef and Broccoli stir fry is one of the most popular takeaways and as I have spent the downtime between Christmas writing a new eBook to thank those of you that sign up for my email list, I figured it was time to dust off my recipe for this family favourite. Now if you have already signed up for my email list don’t feel left out, leave me a comment below, don’t worry only I can see your email address and ask me for a copy and I will gladly send you a link to download my new book. Of course if you are new here or you have not signed up before… Why not? Don’t worry I won’t hold it against you (much) the sign up form is over to the right if you are on a computer or larger tablet, if you are on your phone keep scrolling down, it is at the bottom of the page.

But back to this classic fakeaway recipe. This beef and broccoli stir fry unashamedly uses all of the broccoli, I do get frustrated when people throw away the stalk of the broccoli it has a wonderful flavour and texture so it is always a part of this recipe for me. Just peel, dice and soften in boiling water a little and then add it into the stir fry. I’m definitely one of those people that feels the need to diet after the Christmas festivities, I do definitely have the need to mind the pennies though and cooking fakeaways at home can save a bucket load of cash and this beef and broccoli stir fry shows just how easy that can be… In fact, referring back to my eBook, I have a page in there that fills out both my Asian and Indian store cupboard. All of the ingredients needed to cook either Indian or Asian fakeaways at home any old time you like, and you still have not signed up yet? Why on earth not?

  4. 1 Tsp Light Soy Sauce.
  5. 1 Tsp Dark Soy Sauce.
  6. 2 Tbsp Shao Xing Rice Wince.
  7. 4 Garlic Cloves: Finely Chopped.
  8. 35g Ginger: Sliced into thin batons about 2.5cm long.

  11. 4 Tbsp Water.

  13. 2 Spring Onions: Cut into 1 cm lengths.
  14. 50g Peanuts: Raw but peeled.
  15. 1 Tbsp Sesame Seeds (Optional).
  16. 1 Tbsp Flavourless Cooking oil.
Instructions
  1. Bring a pan of water to the boil and prepare your broccoli by cutting the head into florets then trimming down the stem and chopping in to 1cm cubes.
  2. Place the cubes in the boiling water for 2 minutes and then drop in the florets and blanch for a further 2 minutes, when blanched refresh in ice cold water and set aside.
  3. Mix together the cornflour, light and dark soy sauces along with half of the rice wine, add in the beef and allow to marinade whilst you prepare the remaining ingredients.
  4. Mix together the oyster sauce, remaining 1 tablespoon of rice wine, sesame oil, water and black pepper and set aside.
  5. Heat a wok over a high heat and toast the sesame seeds, this should take no more than a minute, remove and set aside.
  6. Repeat this process with the nuts, this should take 2 minutes again setting aside when cooked.
  7. Now add in the cooking oil and when hot stir fry the garlic ginger and spring onions for 60 seconds.
  8. Now in with the beef, leaving as much of the marinade in the bowl as possible and stir fry for 2 minutes.
  9. Throw in the broccoli and stir fry for a further minute.
  10. No add in the remaining marinade, the sauce we made earlier and the peanuts and simmer for 2 minutes until the sauce thickens and coats the ingredients.
  11. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds to when served.
Notes
  1. Stir fried food moves fast so get all ingredients ready before starting to cook. I like to serve this with simple jasmine rice but noodles would work just as well. Yum
