A simple and quick stir fry with beef and broccoli and a quick oyster sauce. I go heavy on the garlic and ginger also to kick up the flavor a notch.


1 pound beef, sliced thin (strip steak or flank steak work great)
1 pound broccoli florets
1 red pepper, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
3-4 inches of ginger, peeled and minced
1 Tablespoon neutral oil
Brown rice (or your favorite) for serving

Marinade for beef:

1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 Teaspoon corn starch
1 Teaspoon chili oil
Pinch of red pepper flakes and fresh ground pepper


2 Tablespoons oyster sauce
2 Teaspoons rice wine vinegar or white wine vinegar
1 Teaspoon corn starch
1 Teaspoon soy sauce
1 Teaspoon chili oil
1/4 cup chicken stock (or water)
Fresh ground pepper

1) Slice the steak thinly. Whisk together marinade ingredients and marinade steak for at least 15 minutes.

2) Blanch broccoli florets in salted water for 1.5-2 minutes. Then dunk them in ice water to stop the cooking.

3) Prep all the other stir fry ingredients and whisk together your sauce ingredients. Make sure everything is ready before you start cooking.

4) Get your pan over high heat and let it heat until it’s really hot. Then add a drizzle of oil and the steak. Cook it for about 90 seconds, until it’s mostly cooked.

5) Next, add the red peppers and cook for another minute. Then add in the ginger and garlic and cook for another 15 seconds.

6) Pour in sauce and stir. Add in blanched broccoli and cook for another minute. Sauce should reduce down immediately.

7) Serve stir fry with rice!
