How to Prepare Beef and Broccoli

Making this Chinese-inspired beef and broccoli meal from scratch is simpler than it seems. Follow these easy steps:

  1. Place sliced flank steak in a large bag and coat it with cornstarch.
  2. In a medium saucepan, sauté the fragrant garlic and ginger until the garlic becomes aromatic.
  3. Add soy sauce, water, and brown sugar to the saucepan, stirring until the sugar melts. Bring the mixture to a boil and let it bubble for a couple of minutes. Then, reduce the heat and simmer until the sauce thickens slightly.
  4. While the sauce simmers, sear the steak in a separate skillet.
  5. Arrange the seared steak and broccoli on top, pour in the soy sauce mixture, and toss everything together. Simmer for a few minutes until the broccoli reaches the desired crisp-tender texture.

Perfecting the Beef and Broccoli Sauce

If you prefer your sauce to have a thicker consistency, here’s a handy tip: If you find your sauce to be on the thinner side or want it to cling better to the beef and broccoli, you can make a simple cornstarch slurry. Dissolve 1 tablespoon of cornstarch in 1 tablespoon of water and add it to the sauce. Stir and simmer for about 60 seconds, and you’ll notice your sauce thickening beautifully.
