Recipe Remake: Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry


A remake of a tried and true recipe of Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry.

This is another great left over recipe.  It uses left over steak.  Now if you are like my husband you probably don't ever have left over steak.  Sometimes when he is really hungry he even eats my leftovers.  But on occasion I have about half a steak left over.  This, when sliced up, usually is about 1 cup.  With plenty of broccoli, onions,  and rice it makes a great new dinner for two.


1 Tbsp garlic, minced
1 Tbsp ginger, minced
1 onion, thinly sliced
2 cups broccoli floretts
1/4 cup water
2 Tbsp oyster sauce
1 Tbsp soy sauce
splash chili oil
1 Tbsp sugar
1/2-1 cup sliced leftover steak

1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds, optional
green onions, sliced

Make the sauce by stirring together oyster sauce, soy, chili oil and sugar.  Add the steak to the sauce mixing to coat well and set aside.

Meanwhile heat a large saute pan or wok on medium high heat.  Add 1 Tbsp oil and then the ginger and garlic.  Stir fry briefly until fragrant and then add the onion.  Stir fry for about 30 seconds until just soft and then add the broccoli.

Stir fry the broccoli for a minute or two and then add the water and allow the broccoli to steam until bright green and tender and most of the water evaporates (you may need more water if it evaporates before the broccoli is tender to your liking).

Lastly add the steak and sauce stirring until mixed well and heated through.  Turn off the heat and toss in the sesame seeds as a garnish (this time I did not add sesame seeds, it is great either way).  

Serve over rice and garnish with green onion slices.  Makes 2 servings.
