Beef N’ Broccoli Stir-Fry
⅓ Cup Oyster Sauce
⅓ Cup Sherry
2 Teaspoons Asian (Toasted) Sesame Oil
1 Teaspoon Soy Sauce
1 Teaspoon White Sugar
1 Teaspoon Cornstarch
¾ Pound Beef Round Steak, Cut Into 1/8-Inch Thick Strips
3 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil, Plus More If Needed
1 Thin Slice Of Fresh Ginger Root
1 Clove Garlic, Peeled And Smashed
1 Pound Broccoli, Cut Into Florets
Step 1 Whisk together oyster sauce, sherry, sesame oil, soy sauce, sugar, and cornstarch in a bowl; stir until sugar has dissolved.
Step 2 Place steak in a shallow bowl. Pour oyster sauce mixture over meat, stir to coat, and marinate for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
Step 3 Heat vegetable oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add ginger and garlic; let sizzle for about 1 minute to flavor oil, then remove and discard. Stir in broccoli. Toss and stir until bright green and almost tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove broccoli from the wok and set aside.
Step 4 Add a little more oil to the wok, if needed, then add beef with marinade. Stir and toss until sauce thickens and turns shiny and meat is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Return broccoli to the wok; stir until heated through, about 3 minutes.
