CRAZY GOOD BEEF AND BROCCOLI



Try this êasy rêcipê for authêntic Chinêsê bêêf and broccoli with whitê ricê.Bêêf and broccoli is a staplê dish that you’ll find at nêarly all Chinêsê Amêrican rêstaurants or takêout placês. I lovê bêêf and broccoli bêcausê (a) I can’t rêsist anything with têndêr and tasty strips of flank stêak, and (b) it’s such an êasy onê-pan stir fry rêcipê that takês lêss than 30 minutês total. Also, if you’rê a hugê broccoli fan likê mê, you’ll lovê thêsê juicy and flavorful bitês of broccoli in bêtwêên mouthfuls of mêat and ricê.

BEST TIPS TO TENDERIZE STIR FRY BEEF
  • Onê of thê bêst things about this bêêf and broccoli rêcipê is thê ultra têndêr bêêf. If you êvêr wondêrêd how Chinêsê rêstaurants makê thêir bêêf so têndêr, you can follow thêsê tips:
  • Cut of bêêf: I usê flank stêak for this dish, but if you opt for morê prêmium cuts thên you will gêt bêêf from morê têndêr parts of thê cow. If you find prê-cut bêêf strips or “bêêf for stir fry” sold at your supêrmarkêt, that will work grêat hêrê as wêll.
  • Thin cuts: You want to slicê vêry thin cuts of bêêf, about 1/4 inch. For êvên morê têndêr bêêf, you can try slicing êvên thinnêr piêcês. Thê thinnêr thê bêêf, thê morê têndêr it will bê.
  • Slicing against thê grain: Noticê thê long musclê fibêrs across thê bêêf and how thêy arê alignêd. You should slicê pêrpêndicular to thosê linês, so that you arê cutting through thê fibêrs. This will rêsult in lêss work for your têêth and it will makê thê bêêf tastê morê têndêr.
  • Corn starch: Toss thê slicêd bêêf with corn starch prior to sêaring, as it’ll softên and têndêrizê thê bêêf. This is a common stêp in many Chinêsê dishês. Corn starch also hêlps thê bêêf rêtain its liquids so that it doêsn’t êxudê juicês whên it’s cookêd.
  • Quick sêar: Don’t ovêrcook thê bêêf slicês — just a quick sêar until thêy’rê brownêd. If you ovêrcook thê bêêf, it will gêt rough and hard.
