Beef & Broccoli Stir-Fry

Beef & Broccoli Stir-Fry is one of my favorite dishes. This is an updated version of a recipe I posted back in 2021 (I have deleted the old version). This new version is still an easy one but includes some extra ingredients and steps to help you get the most tender and delicious beef. This is a must try!

  • Add 3 cups of water to a large sauce pan and bring to a boil. Add a couple pinches of salt. Add in broccoli and boil for about 2 minutes. Drain the broccoli and set aside.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of canola oil to marinated beef and mix
  • Heat up the wok over medium high heat and add 2 tablespoons of oil. Add beef in and sear until browned on both sides. About 5 minutes. Remove beef from wok and set aside.
  • Next, stir-fry all the aromatics: garlic, ginger, onions, and carrots adding the remaining tablespoon of canola oil if needed. Cook for 1-2 minutes.
  • Then add in the mushrooms and broccoli and stir-fry for about 3 minutes.
  • Add the sauce, then add beef back into the wok and stir-fry everything together for about 2-3 minutes.
  • Turn off heat and add in sesame oil. Serve and enjoy with steamed rice!
