Chinese Beef and Broccoli

I would never turn down an offer for a Chinese takeaway, however I do love cooking Chinese at home. I always feel great knowing I have saved money and made some tasty food that is healthy and fresh.

2/3 Servings

10 Minutes Preparation Time

10 Minutes Cooking Time


1 Large Rump Steak

1 Head of Broccoli

2tbs Fresh Ginger

1tbs Garlic

1/4 Cup Oyster Sauce

1/4 Cup Water

1tsp Soy Sauce

1tsp Sugar

1tsp Sesame Oil

1tsp Cornstarch

(I also add other veggies such as carrot, peppers, courgette and cabbage)


- Heat a wok or frying pan over a high heat

- Oil the steak and coat in pepper

- Cook the steak for 1 minute on each side in the wok, until you have a lovely brown colour, then remove and leave to rest

- Now, chop the broccoli into florets. Bring the wok down to a medium/low heat and add the broccoli with a little water to help steam and cook for 4 minutes

- Once the broccoli has started to cook, add the garlic and ginger and cook for 1 minute

- Combine all of the wet ingredients with the sugar and cornstarch and whisk

- Chop your steak into thin strips

- Now add the steak back to the pan and add the sauce

- Let bubble away for a minute or so. The sauce will thicken and coat the beef and broccoli in a lovely glaze

- Mix the contents of the pan and then serve lovely and hot.
