Working Girl

My temporary retirement is officially over. I got a job, and yesterday was my first day. Although it’s sad to say good bye to my life of leisure, it will be nice to get back into a routine in the working world.
As I transition back into my 8-5 schedule, I’m going to heavily rely on easy recipes that can be whipped up with little effort. This Broccoli Beef is just the kind of recipe I had in mind. With pre-cut broccoli, and beef, hand-sliced by the butcher, I was able to cut some corners and save some time.

Broccoli Beef

What You Need

  • 1 pound beef tenderloin, cut into pieces
  • 2-3 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 green onions, white parts chopped and green parts cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons ginger, chopped
  • Marinade
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sherry
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • A few dashes white pepper
  • 4 tablespoons corn starch
  • Sauce
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 1/4 cup water

What To Do

  1. Marinate the beef with all the ingredients for the Marinade, about 15 minutes.
  2. In a large pot, bring water to boil. Blanch the broccoli florets in the hot water, about 30 seconds. Remove the broccoli immediately with a strainer or slotted spoon, draining the excess water. Set aside.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoon of oil in a wok or skillet over high heat. Add ginger and the white parts of the green onions. Cook for 1 minute. Add the beef, and stir-fry until almost cooked.
  4. Add the broccoli, green parts of onion, and sauce, stir to combine the ingredients.
  5. As soon as the Sauce thickens and meat is cooked, dish out and serve immediately over white rice.
