Family Recipe: Mom’s Beef & Broccoli

In honor of my Mom’s birthday this week I picked one of my favorite recipes that she makes.  My Mom is a great cook and I actually made Beef & Broccoli last weekend so thought I would share it with you as well.  I love this recipe and it is delicious!

Mom’s Beef & Broccoli:

  • 3/4 lb fresh Broccoli
  • 1 lb lean boneless Beef Steak (top round, flank, or sirloin work well)
  • 2 tablespoon Soy Sauce (I used low sodium soy sauce)
  • 1 clove of Garlic, minced or pressed
  • 1/4 cup Salad Oil (or olive oil)
  • 2 tablespoon of Water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon Corn Starch
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground Ginger
  • 2 tablespoon cooking Sherry
  • 1 1/4 cup regular strength Beef Broth
  • Dash of Red Pepper

Cut broccoli and set aside.  Cut beef with the grain into 1 1/2 inch wide strips then across the grain in 1/4 inch slices.  In bowl mix beef, soy sauce and garlic.  Let marinate 15 minutes.  Prepare cooking sauce corn starch, ground ginger, dash of red pepper, cooking sherry, and beef broth.  When wok is hot add 1 tablespoon of oil, add half of the meat mixture.  Stir fry until browned (about 2 to 3 minutes).  Repeat with second half of meat and 1 more tablespoon of oil.  Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil and stir in the broccoli for about 1 minute.  Add water cover and cook about 3 minutes.  Add cooking sauce to meat and stir until the sauce has thickened.

When I made this dish last weekend I added in some mushrooms and onions that I needed to use up.  I cut back on the oil and didn’t have the Sherry so that was eliminated however since I added the additional juicy vegetables it was still tasty.  This recipe is amazing as is but feel free to add in extra items that your family enjoys eating.
