I used to think that this was a Chinese-American staple, but it's surprisingly difficult to find a useful recipe, either in my cookbooks nor on the web. My first attempt was on 14 September 2014, and the second on 17 October 2016. This recipe is a plan for “next time”.


quantity       ingredient       step
300 g       beef       1
60 g       oyster sauce       1
80 ml       Chinese rice wine       1
20 g       sesame oil       1
5 g       soya sauce       1
250 g       broccoli florets       2
15 g       garlic       2
15 g       ginger       2
50 g       spring onions       2
      oil for frying       3
      chopped coriander leaf       5


  1. Cut the beef into thin strips about 1×3 cm in size and about 3 mm thick. Mix with oyster sauce, wine, sesame oil and soya sauce and marinate for at least 30 minutes.

  2. Cut the broccoli into small florets. Finely chop ginger and garlic. Fry the ginger and garlic in the oil until about half-cooked. Add the broccoli and stir fry briefly. Add a little water, cover and steam until bright green.

  3. In another pan, fry the beef until cooked.

  4. If the sauce is too thin, thicken with cornflour.
  5. Mix together on a serving dish, garnish with coriander leaf and serve.
