Beef and broccoli
500g rump steak, very thinly sliced on an angle
2 cups broccoli florets
2 tbsp peanut oil
1 small onion, peeled and thinly sliced
3 thin slices of ginger, bruised
3 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
¼ cup oyster sauce
1 tbsp soy sauce
½ tsp sugar
2 tbsp Coarse stock, Chicken stock or water
1 tsp cornflour mixed with 1 tbsp cold stock or water
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp Shaoxing wine
1 tsp sesame oil
½ tsp cornflour
a pinch of white pepper
- Combine the beef with the meat marinade ingredients and marinate for at least 10 minutes.
- Heat about a cup of water in the wok until boiling, add dash of oil and blanche the broccoli for about 1 minute until it is bight green and slightly softened. Drain and set aside until ready to fry.
- Drain the water from the wok and dry the wok over the flame. Add about 2 tbsp oil and add the ginger first then the garlic to the oil, then the onion and fry until the onion is softened. Scoop the onion, ginger and garlic out of the oil and add to the broccoli. Using the flavoured oil left in the wok, fry the beef in batches until well browned. Return all the ingredients back into the wok and toss together. Add the the oyster sauce, soy sauce, stock and sugar and toss to coat. Slowly drizzle the cornflour mixture into the wok while tossing until the liquids thicken and cling to the ingredients. Immediately remove to a plate, rest for a moment and serve with rice and little chilli in soy sauce.

Adam you are a legend. All your recipes work beautifully, without fail. Thank goodness you gave up your law career and are able to share your knowledge of not only Japanese food (which is extensive) but also other cuisines.
Thank for your great beef & Broccoli recipe. I’ve made it three times now and it’s turned out really great each time. Just made it for my nieces and they loved it. I’ll be making this again for sure.
this was delicious and quick and the instructions were really helpful. I added a red capsicum as I was a bit short on broccoli but this recipe is a keeper, thank you to Adam.

I made this and it tuned out perfectly. This is the third of Adm’s receipies I’ve tried and all have been a great success. Going out today to buy your cook books…Thank you Adam!
