How to Make Beef and Broccoli with Garlic Sauce

  • Trim any visible fat from the steak. Cut the beef lengthwise into 2-inch wide strips, then cut each strip crosswise (against the grain) into 1/8-inch slices.
  • Toss the beef, 1 tbsp vegetable oil, the salt and the white pepper in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Pare the outer tough layer from the broccoli stems. Remove the flowerets and cut the broccoli stems diagonally into thin slices.
  • Place the broccoli in boiling water. Cover and cook for 2 minutes, then remove and drain.
  • Immediately rinse in cold water and drain.
  • Mix the corn starch, sesame oil and broth together.
  • Heat a wok until very hot. Add 2 tbsp of vegetable oil and rotate the wok to coat bottom.
  • Add the beef and stir-fry for 2 minutes or until the beef is brown. Remove beef from the wok.
  • Heat the wok until very hot again. Add 1 tbsp of vegetable oil and rotate the wok to coat bottom.
  • Add the garlic, ginger root, and black bean sauce, stir-fry for 30 seconds.
  • Toss in the bamboo shoots and stir-fry for another 1 minute.
  • Toss in the beef and broccoli.
  • Stir in corn starch mixture; cook and stir 15 seconds or until thickened.
