Welcome to my recipe portion! Am I going to give you a background of why I started cooking? Fuck no. Am I going to give a long ass story before getting to the part that you’re all looking for? Fuck no. Am I going to post pics? Probably fucking not. Let’s get started.
I typically cook for 2 + leftovers. I would block out 30 minutes to make this. The prep is what takes the longest.
- -1 lbs of beef – I used a wagyu tenderloin because it was on sale at New Seasons but honestly, flank or top sirloin work the same. You’re going to slice it into thin strips
- -2 small heads of broccoli
- -3 tbs of oil – I use canola or vegetable
- -1 inch of ginger (grated into small pieces) or you can dice
- -3 tsp of garlic
- -3 tbs of brown sugar
- -6tbs of soy sauce (I use low sodium)
- -1/2 cup of hot water
- -2 tbs of corn starch
- -1/2 tsp of black pepper
- -1/2 tsp of chili flakes
- -2 tbs of sesame oil
- Sesame seeds for garnish (optional)
- 2 cups of white rice
- 1) Cook the rice to serve
- 2) Combine the: ginger, garlic, brown sugar, soy sauce, hot water, corn starch, black pepper, chili flakes and sesame oil in a bowl. Ensure the corn starch is dissolved.
- 3) Cut the beef into thin slices (thickness is up to you)
- 4) Wash and cut the broccoli into florets and stems (feel free to cut the stems down more)
- 5) In a large skillet or non-stick pan, add in the a tbs of oil over medium heat.
- 6) Add in the broccoli into the pan and sauté for a few minutes. Until the broccoli becomes brighter. I like a tiny bit of browning on the outside.
- 7) Remove the broccoli into a bowl
- 8) In the pan/skillet, add in another tbs of oil over a high heat.
- 9) Add in the beef (it cooks fast) so that each piece is touching the pan. If there is more beef that is okay, a single layer is all that is needed right now.
- 10) Flip when it starts to brown.
- 11) Turn the heat down to simmer.
- 11) Add in sauce (half if not all the beef was used) and broccoli (again, half if not all the beef was used)
- 12) Let it simmer for about 5 minutes (until the sauce starts to thicken)
- a) if the sauce is too thick, add a tbs of water until it’s to your liking
- 13) Move the mixture into a bowl and repeat if you have more beef.
- 14) When it’s all in the bowl, add a few dashes of sesame seeds over the top and you’re done!
- 15) Serve with rice and enjoy!
