Beef Broccoli Recipe

If there is any caution or warning that I would like to give you when making this dish, it will be on how to marinade the beef properly so that you will not end up wasting the stake! Here is the rule of thumb. For every pound or about 500 grams of beef that you have, you should use only 1/4 -1/2 teaspoon of baking soda or baking powder along with other seasoning of your choice. Using too much of the baking soda or the baking powder to treat the meat, will result in tasting the soda turning your meat nasty!

Beef Broccoli

For my recipe, I marinade the beef using my stir fry sauce so that I will only prepare the seasoning once and get it ready for both marinade and stir fry. Don’t be afraid that you’ll be making too much stir fry sauce. It stays good in the fridge forever so you can use it for other Asian stir fry dishes too. For each serving, you will want to use about 1.5 -2 tablespoons of the sauce. This recipe makes 4 servings so I used 4 tablespoons of the sauce for marinade and another 4 while stir frying everything together.

Also, while you can’t go wrong with the flank stake, you can still use cheaper cuts of meat whether it may be top round or even the beef for roasting. Use whatever is cheap and affordable. I have tried using different cuts and don’t see too much of a difference. Use what works for you. Your homemade food will also be better and healthier than the takeout as you know exactly when it is made and if the oil has been reused from frying something else or not.

For Stir Fry and Marinade Sauce
  • 1/2 cup oyster sauce
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp seasoning soy sauce I use Maggie. If you don't have it, just substitute with soy sauce.
  • ½ – 1 tsp dark soy sauce Optional. Click on the link to see what I use.
Extra ingredients for marinade
  • ¼ -½ tsp baking soda
  • 3 tbsp corn starch
  • ½ -1 tsp ground black pepper


Make the stir fry and marinade sauce 
  • Mix the all the sauces in the list above together and store in the jar. 
    Note : You can use this sauce for almost every stir fry. Don’t worry if you feel like you may making too much.  It will last in the fridge forever even when you don’t cook often. 
Marinade the beef 
  • Slice the beef thinly using the cut of your choice. I used top round in the video because it’s cheap and work for me. But you also can’t go wrong with the flank steak. 
  • Marinade the beef with 3-4 stir fry/marinade sauce, corn starch, black pepper, and 1/2 tsp baking soda. Do not use more than half a teaspoon of baking soda! Let it marinade while you preparing the rest of the stuff such as steaming rice and cutting the veggies. The marinade time should be at least 5 minutes.
Prepare the vegetables while the marinating the meat.
  • Peel and roughly chop garlic.
  • Use scissors to cut the big dried chilies into small pieces. The seeds should come out easily. 
  • Wash and cut the tough ends of the broccolini . Then cut the broccolini in halves. If the stems are too long for you. Cut some of it, peel and slice them so they cook easily and not too tough. If using a crown of broccoli, cut the tough end out. Then cut/chop the broccoli into bite sizes. 
Stir Fry/ Assemble
  • Heat the wok with medium – high heat add 1 tbsp vegetable oil. Brown the beef until it is 90%cooked. This should take about 2 minutes or so. Set it aside. Wipe or clean your wok.
  • Fry garlic and dried chilies until fragrant (10 seconds). Add the cooked beef back to the wok. Follow by the broccolini and 3-4 Tbsp stir fry sauce, sugar, and 1/2 cup water. 
  • Stir fry until the beef is fully cooked and the broccolini gets soften a little bit. This process should only take 2 minutes.
  • Serve the stir fry with steamed rice and enjoy !
