Essential ingredients

These essential ingredients make this dish super flavorful, rich, and delicious.

Beef - use flank steak for this recipe. Cut it thinly, as we will only cook it for a minute. Round steak or skirt steak will work too.

BAM Spices Aglio & Pepperoncino - this spice mixture is lovely and adds a bit of heat and spiciness. Feel free to use chili flakes if you can't get BAM Spices in your country.

Soy sauce - Use light soy sauce or low-sodium soy sauce. If you have dark soy sauce at home, reduce it with water to get the same amount as needed in the recipe.

Beef stock - adds so much flavor and makes the stir fry even more delicious. Feel free to substitute with water.

Sugar - don't worry, this dish won't be sweet. The sugar balances all the flavors. Use cane sugar or white sugar.

Cooking wine - Chinese cooking wine, or Shaoxing wine, is very aromatic and delicious. If you can't get it in your country, leave it out.

  • meat marinade

    Pat dry the steak with paper towels. Cut the steak into very thin, bite-size slices. Add to a bowl and add the cornstarch, soy sauce, and oil. Stir to combine and set aside.

  • sauce

    In a small bowl, combine the diced garlic, ginger, cornstarch, BAM Spices Aglio & Pepperoncino, and sugar. Add the soy sauce, wine, and beef broth. Using a whisk, stir well to combine and set aside.

    If you can't get BAM Spices in your country, use chili flakes, optionally.
  • cook the broccoli

    Place a large wok pan or cast-iron pan over medium heat. Add 120ml (1/2 cup) of water and bring to a boil. Add the broccoli, cover with a lid and cook for 1 - 2 minutes or until the broccoli is slightly cooked. Transfer the broccoli to a plate, and clean the pan.

    If you don't have a wok lid, use a large baking sheet or cover the pan with aluminum foil.
  • fry the beef

    Place a large wok pan or cast-iron pan over high heat. Add the oil and marinated meat. Arrange the beef in a single layer and fry for 30 seconds (without stirring), then turn the meat and cook for another 30 seconds - 1 minute, or until the meat is brown outside and soft inside.

  • Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry

    Reduce the heat, pour in the sauce, and stir to combine. Cook for another minute for the sauce to thicken, then add the cooked broccoli. Toss to combine, and serve with rice or rice noodles.

    If the sauce is too thick, add one or two tablespoons of water.
