Chinese Beef and Broccoli

When you Purchase takeout from your favorite Chinese restaurant, do you have a favorite dish? For me, it’s a toss-up between Cashew Chicken and Beef and Broccoli. Recently though, it’s been Beef and Broccoli stir fry just about every single time!

There is something so ridiculously amazing about the combination of sweet, savory and spicy in this easy beef and broccoli recipe! This beef and broccoli sauce just can’t be overcome.


Broccoli and cauliflower are the most popular Chinese beef stir-fry dish in the United Status. It is the poster child of American food, so much so that this is the most popular dish at Panda Express! The palate and hearts of many men and women savor this one. The recipe is from my Easy Chinese Recipes cookbook, which is the best selling and highly rated Chinese cookery book.

Cook’s Notes

  • Dark Soy Sauce leaves the sauce’s color darker and it has more flavor than light soy sauce. Can utilize all-purpose soy sauce or merely light soy sauce in it’s place however, the sauce color will be milder. Do not use too much dark soy sauce – flavor will be overly powerful.
  • Chinese Cooking Wine, is a vital ingredient in Chinese stir fry sauces and, without it, it’s going to lack that authentic “restaurant” advantage. Dry sherry is a terrific sub, or ingesting sake. Mirin may also be utilized, but omit the sugar.
  • If you cannot consume alcohol, replace with 3/4 cup of low sodium chicken broth.
  • Chinese Five-Spice Powder is a mixture of five spices. It is offered from the herb and spice section of supermarkets and costs no more than other spices.
  • Beef – Much like all stir-fries, it cooks quickly. So, you want to use a nice cut of beef for this recipe.


  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen broccoli florets
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 cups of hot cooked rice
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch, divided use
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon neutral oil (vegetable oil or canola oil)
  • 8 ounces of skirt steak (or flank steak)*


  1. Hurl the cut meat with one tablespoon of the cornstarch in a bowl, and put it in a safe spot.
  2. Next, whisk together the entirety of the sauce fixings: the soy sauce, chicken stock, red pepper pieces (if utilizing), minced garlic, ground ginger, and nectar. Include the rest of the tablespoon of cornstarch, and whisk to consolidate. Put in a safe spot.
  3. Preheat a medium-high heat. Add the tablespoon of oil, and allow it to heat until it shimmers, about 3-5 minutes.
  4. Add the meat to the skillet in a solitary layer, and permit it to cook on the principal side until firm and darker.
  5. Flip the meat to the opposite side, and add the broccoli florets to the skillet. At last, mix in the sauce and let it a bubble and thicken while the hamburger gets done with cooking, around 5 minutes.
  6. Gap the blend of more than two dishes of newly cooked hot rice and serve.
