Broccoli & Beef

I always love a meat-with-veg side dish like this stir fried broccoli & beef. The beef is tender even though I used a modest cut (flank). All I need is some rice to go with the beef, broccoli and the savoury sauce. The cooking time is fast, since both broccoli & beef cook quickly, making this dish ideal for weekdays and busy times.

Cut of beef to use, and how to get tender beef. I usually buy beef flank since it is the most value-for-money cut suitable for stir frying, as compared to ribeye or tenderloin. Despite being a more economical cut, the beef still turned out tender after cooking. The trick is to slice the beef diagonally against the grain, and marinating the beef slices in cornstarch & seasonings for 15-30 minutes. I bought pre-sliced beef from the supermarket, which is a huge convenience, but you can save even more if you slice the beef yourself.

Stir-fry Broccoli & Beef Recipe
As for the broccoli, I blanch them in boiling water for less than a minute first, so that they don’t have to sit inside the wok for too long. If you want to cook everything in the same wok, fry the beef slices until 3/4 cooked and set them aside on a plate. Add broccoli and stir fry until cooked, then return the beef back to the wok to finish up cooking.

  1. The stirfry looks very yummy! Those beef slices are really tender.

  2. I do eat beef but seldom buy to cook it at home. I will remember to get beef flanks if I make a home-style beef dish like this next time. Remember? 你的口味都合我口味的 :)

  3. Pls advise whether should I coat the beef slices with baking soda (like the ginger & scallion beef recipe) to make the beef tender or marinating with corn starch & seasoning is good enough to tender the beef?
