Restaurant Style Beef and Broccoli


This beef with broccoli is my go-to recipe when I want Chinese food without going out. It's very easy to make and delicious served over rice. Substituting chicken for the beef works great, too.

  • cup oyster sauce

  • cup sherry

  • 2 teaspoons Asian (toasted) sesame oil

  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce

  • 1 teaspoon white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch

  • ¾ pound beef round steak, cut into 1/8-inch thick strips

  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, plus more if needed

  • 1 thin slice of fresh ginger root

  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and smashed

  • 1 pound broccoli, cut into florets


  1. Whisk together oyster sauce, sherry, sesame oil, soy sauce, sugar, and cornstarch in a bowl; stir until sugar has dissolved.

  2. Place steak in a shallow bowl. Pour oyster sauce mixture over meat, stir to coat, and marinate for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator.

  3. Heat vegetable oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add ginger and garlic; let sizzle for about 1 minute to flavor oil, then remove and discard. Stir in broccoli. Toss and stir until bright green and almost tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove broccoli from the wok and set aside.

  4. Add a little more oil to the wok, if needed, then add beef with marinade. Stir and toss until sauce thickens and turns shiny and meat is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Return broccoli to the wok; stir until heated through, about 3 minutes.
