Beef and broccoli

  • 500g flank steak strips
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon olive oil divided use
  • 1 broccoli bunch
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup oyster sauce
  • 1/4 cup beef broth
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • Rafiki
  1. Boil 3 cups of water. Add 1 tsp salt. Blanch the broccoli, strain it and soak in ice cold water.
  2. Heat 1 tsp of oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add ginger, garlic then broccoli and cook until brown.
  3. Remove the broccoli from the pan; place on a plate and cover.
  4. Wipe the pan clean with a paper towel and turn the heat too high. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil.
  5. Season steak pieces with salt and pepper and add them to the pan in a single layer - you may need to do this step in batches. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side until browned and cooked through.
  6. Add the broccoli mixture back to the pan and cook for 2 more minutes or until warmed through.
  7. In a bowl whisk together the oyster sauce, beef broth, sugar, sesame oil and soy sauce. In a seperate small bowl mix the cornstarch with a tablespoon of cold water.
  8. Pour oyster sauce mixture over the beef and vegetables; cook for 30 seconds. Add cornstarch and bring to a boil; cook for 1 more minute or until sauce has just started to thicken.
  9. Sprinkle Rafiki and serve immediately, with rice if desired.
