Description

Go home and make your own very good Chinese take-out. To make it more authentic, you are even allowed to eat on the coffee table in front of your television.

Ingredients

  • 1-½ pound Top Sirloin Or Top Round Steak
  • 2 Tablespoons (Heaping) Cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon Sesame Oil
  • 1 whole Medium Onion, Sliced
  • 16 ounces, weight Bag Frozen Broccoli Florets
  • 1 teaspoon Peanut Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Garlic, Minced
  • ¼ cups Water
  • ¼ cups Soy Sauce/ Tamari
  • ¼ cups Organic Brown Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Ginger, Minced
  • 1 teaspoon Chili Garlic Sauce
  • ¼ cups Peanut Oil
  • 2 teaspoons Garlic, Minced
  • 4 cups Fresh Steamed Jasmine Rice

Preparation

1. Slice meat thin, put in bowl, sprinkle with cornstarch and mix in. Pour sesame oil over and mix to coat, set aside minimum of 10 minutes. This must be done first so the meat has time to tenderize with the starch.

2. Slice onion and set aside. Cook 1 whole bag of frozen broccoli for only half of the cooking time specified by the package instruction, drain water and set aside. (If the bag states it will take 8 minutes to cook then only cook 4 minutes.)

3. Heat 1 teaspoon peanut oil in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Add garlic and cook 1 minute until fragrant and golden. Add water, soy sauce, brown sugar and ginger, stir until sugar dissolves and slightly boil for 2 minutes. Take off heat and stir in chili garlic sauce. (This amount does not make it very spicy. Add more to your taste or you can add more over dish when plated and served.) Set sauce aside until later.

4. Add ¼ cup peanut oil to a large frying pan or wok on high heat, add 2 teaspoons minced garlic and cook 1 minute until fragrant and golden. Add beef, stir fry until almost done (to your desired level of pink) and meat juices are coming out and thickening from corn starch. This time will depend on how thick you cut it. Add onion and broccoli, stir fry 2 minutes. Add sauce and stir fry 2 minutes, turn off heat and let bubble and thicken but careful not to overcook broccoli.

Serve over fresh steamed jasmine rice There will also be enough sauce for spooning over rice and trust me you will want to! YUM!

I had to leave a comment on this! It was so delicious! I had some leftover fresh broccoli stems and didn’t want to throw them out so I made them into this. My hubby and I both thoroughly enjoyed this. I used coconut oil rather than peanut oil, and a little less meat, but the flavors were fantastic. I can’t wait to try it with some green beans or pea. Great recipe!

I made this tonight & substituted chicken for the beef. It was delicious!! Everyone in the family agreed, and there weren’t any left overs. I’ll be adding this to my regular rotation, and I will try it with beef next time. Yum!

This recipe is delicious! Like other reviewers I used fresh broccoli but thats the only change I made. I loved how easy it was to make and how authentic it tasted. I will be making this again. Thanks for the great recipe Natasha!

Really good! A bit tedious, but nothing too difficult by any means. I didn’t have any peanut sauce, ginger, or chili paste but it still turned out. Next time I will definitely add those other ingredients! Tasty!!!

Great flavor. I used fresh broccoli. Next time I will do something to tenderize my beef before stir frying it.
