Beef-N-Broccoli



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.......

Ingredients:

Marinade:
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

The rest:

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.


Dissolve cornstarch in water to make a paste; set aside.

Heat 6 tablespoons of oil in wok over medium high heat for 1 minute.

Stir fry marinated beef until very lightly browned.

Remove beef, draining well over wok; set aside. Add 1 Tablespoon oil to oil left in wok...heat 30 seconds. Stir-fry garlic 30 seconds. Add broccoli tops - stir fry 5 minutes.

Add cornstarch paste, salt, soy sauce, chicken broth and pepper.

Stir-fry until sauce thickens slightly.

Add cooked beef, mix well.

Remove from wok and arrange on a platter.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.

Thanks mom for sharing this with me.
