Beef Sauce with Broccoli

Salut mes beautés intelligentes! Hope your weekend is off to a great start! The other night I made some beef broccoli with the help of my "assistant chef" (Monsieur Jean-Christophe, as seen in pictures below) for dinner, and it came out so well! (proud moment). Prior to this I had tried out other ways to get the right taste, and a few times failed miserably! However, I think I finally got the right ingredients down, at least for now, before I decide to throw in something new next time(I'll update this post if I do :D ).

This time around I made the broccoli tender than usual, because I was going for a creamier sauce. :)

PROCEDURE

1. In a small bowl, marinate the beef with soy sauce, corn starch (1/2 teaspoon) and sesame oil. Stir properly to combine.

2. While the meat is marinating, chop the garlic, onions and ginger, and place them in a separate bowl.

3. In another bowl, cut apart the florets of the broccoli into bite-sized pieces.

4. In a separate bowl, mix the chicken stock, oyster sauce, corn starch (1 teaspoon) and white pepper, and combine properly.

5. Heat up your sauce pan (or wok if you have one) and add the coconut oil.

6. When the coconut oil is a little hot, add in your chopped garlic, ginger and onions.

7. Add in the beef and stir fry until the beef is cooked enough (not completely soft), and then add in the broccoli. Add a little water and cover the sauce pan to allow the steam cook the sauce (cook for five minutes). Note: If you want do not want your broccoli tender, you would have to take out the beef after it has cooked, and steam the broccoli on its own. Once the broccoli is as tender as you want it(2 mins tops), throw in the beef and continue on to the next step. :)

8. Take off the lid, and add the stock mixture (stir first) into the sauce.

9. Stir fry until the sauce is slightly thick and and has coated everything evenly.

I served this with a side of jasmine rice, yum! :) IMG_8754
