Stir-Fried Beef and Broccoli
Recipe courtesy Emeril Lagasse, 2007

Total Time: 25 min
Prep: 15 min
Cook: 10 min

Yield: 4 to 6 servings

Level: Easy

Ingredients

2 tablespoons minced garlic
4 teaspoons grated ginger
4 teaspoons Chinese black vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
3 teaspoons hoisin sauce
3 teaspoons orange blossom honey
4 tablespoons peanut oil, divided
2 pounds beef flap steak, thinly sliced across the grain*
4 tablespoons cornstarch
2 large heads broccoli, cut into florets and blanched
1 1/2 teaspoons red pepper flakes
Steamed white rice, for serving

Directions

Combine the garlic, ginger, vinegar, soy sauce, hoisin sauce and honey. Mix well and set aside until ready to use. Preheat a wok or a large skillet. Once it has reached a medium heat, add 1/2 of the peanut oil. Dredge the beef in the cornstarch, lightly shake off any excess cornstarch and add 1/2 of the beef to the pan. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Add 1/2 of the broccoli to the pan and shake frequently.

Add 1/2 of the sauce and stir to evenly coat the beef and broccoli. Cook until the sauce thickens about 5 minutes. Repeat the process with the other half of the ingredients. Serve immediately with steamed white rice.

*It will be easier to slice the beef in thin strips if it has been partially frozen.

Chef's Note: this may be able to be done in 1 batch if using a very large wok or skillet.
