Beef and Broccoli
Not sure if this recipe is similar to Emily's, but oh well. This was Joe's favorite of the night and turned out pretty good so I thought I'd post it. Sorry the picture isn't too appetizing, but it was good!
3/4 lb. lean beef, sliced into thin strips
broccoli florets, sliced small
1 c. cooking oil
2 1/2 T oyster sauce
2 T. soy sauce
1 T. sugar
a few drops of sesame oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 c. beef broth
2 T. corn starch
1/3 t. salt
1 T. cooking wine (I used beef broth)
1 T. cornstarch
1 1/2 T. oil
2 T. water
Slice beef and mix with the marinade. Add 1 1/2 T. oil to beef and mix thoroughly. Set aside for 30 minutes.
While beef is marinading, chop up your veggies.
Heat your wok and stir fry the beef until nearly cooked. Remove beef and set aside. Clean out your wok add enough water to cover your veggies. Cover and let simmer until almost cooked. Drain wok.
Heat wok and add a few T oil. Add the garlic, veggies and beef back in. Make a well in the middle and add the sauce ingredients.
Cook until thickened and eat hot over rice. Yum!
