Another recipe of my mother's to add to my recipe box. This is her Beef-N-Broccoli recipe. I just love love love this one. Every year for my birthday I would request that she would make this for me. Well this and the hot milk cake. I have been to many restaurants and have NEVER found a place that makes beef-n-broccoli as good as my mother's...not even close.
So here it is.......
2 teaspoons rice wine or dry sherry (cooking wine)
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
2 Tablespoons sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 pound broccoli tops
2 teaspoon corn starch
1/3 cups water
7 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon soy sauce
2 cans chicken broth
1/4 teaspoon pepper
The how to:
use a cleaver to slice beef across grain and at an angle into thin strips.
Mix marinade ingredients in a medium bowl. Add beef strips; mix well. let stand at least 30 minutes.
Cut each broccoli tops lengthwise in to 2 or 3 pieces.
Heat 6 tablespoons of oil in wok over medium high heat for 1 minute.
Stir fry marinated beef until very lightly browned.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.
