Ginger Beef & Broccoli

Garlicky Chinese Beef and Broccoli Recipe by Ash's In The Kitchen

Beef & Broccoli is one of my favorite meals! Steamed broccoli and pan seared beef tossed in a slightly sweet, garlicky sauce? Yes, please! This was one of my go to Chinese takeout before I decided to make it myself. It’s so amazing served with fresh egg rolls, crab Rangoon and fried rice!


3 pounds Beef Roast; sliced against the grain

1 large head of Broccoli; floreted

2 Tablespoons Sesame Oil

1 small Onion; diced

3 Garlic Cloves; finely minced

1 teaspoon fresh Ginger; grated


1 cup Soy Sauce

1 teaspoon Fish Sauce

1 Tablespoon Oyster Sauce

3 Tablespoons White Sugar

1 teaspoon Garlic Chile Paste

1 teaspoon Lemongrass; minced

½ teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes

1 teaspoon Black Pepper

½ teaspoon Mustard Powder

1 Tablespoon Sesame Seeds

1 Tablespoon Cornstarch

2 Tablespoons cold Water

Heat a pot with 1″ of water and a steamer basket with the broccoli to a boil. Cover and steam until just tender; about 6 minutes. Remove the steamer basket with the broccoli and set aside.

Meanwhile, heat a skillet over medium heat and add the sesame oil, onion and ginger; sautéing until tender. Add the garlic and continue to cook until fragrant before adding beef and sautéing until cooked through.

Add in the sauce ingredients and toss to coat before covering and reducing the heat to low. In a small bowl, whisk the cornstarch and cold water, then pour the slurry into the skillet and fold in the broccoli. Cook for an additional 15 minutes.

Scoop the broccoli and beef over steamed rice and garnish with sesame seeds.
