Chinese Broccoli and Beef

Posted on | July 26, 2012 | 7 Comments

This is such a delicious and easy recipe. I have been making this for years. The oyster sauce is something that maybe not everybody has in their pantry but do not omit it in case you’re considering this. It’s worth buying this sauce because once you make this recipe, I am sure you’ll make it again and again…


  • 500 g / 17.6 ounces beef, cut into thin strips
  • 750 g / 26.5 ounces broccoli, cut into bite-sized florets
  • olive oil
  • 1 tbsp grated garlic

Beef Marinade

  • 2 1/4 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • pepper

Stir-Fry Sauce

  • 3 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar


  • sesame seeds, optional


Combine the marinade ingredients in a bowl and add the beef strips. Toss the meat to coat it with the marinade and let it marinate for at least 15 minutes.

Steam or cook the broccoli florets for a few minutes. They should still be crisp and turn bright green.

In a large frying pan, fry the grated garlic in hot oil until it becomes fragrant. Add the beef and fry it until done.

Pour the oyster sauce and the balsamic vinegar into the pan and stir.  Let everything simmer until it becomes a little thicker. Then add the broccoli. Toss everything to coat.

Sprinkle with a few sesame seeds. Serve with rice or noodles. I used brown rice.

Guten Appetit!!!

Chinesisches Rindfleisch mit Brokkoli


  • 500 g Rindfleisch, in dünne Streifen geschnitten
  • 750 g Brokkoli, in mundgerechte Röschen geschnitten
  • Olivenöl
  • 1 EL geriebenen Knoblauch


  • 2 1/4 EL Sojasoβe
  • 1 1/2 EL Stärke
  • 1 1/2 EL Olivenöl
  • Pfeffer


  • 3 EL Austernsauce
  • 1 EL Balsamico Essig


  • Sesamkörner

Die Zutaten für die Marinade in einer Schüssel vermengen. Das Rindfleisch hinzufügen und mit der Marinade vermengen. Das Fleisch für mindestens 15 Minuten marinieren lassen.

Die Brokkoliröschen für ein paar Minuten in kochendem Wasser kochen oder dämpfen. Der Brokkoli sollte nicht zu weich sondern noch knackig sein und ein intensiveres, leuchtendes Grün annehmen.

Den Knoblauch in ein wenig Öl in einer groβen Pfanne duftend anbraten. Das Fleisch hinzufügen und braten bis es gar ist.

Die Austernsauce und den Balsamico Essig hinzufügen und untermischen. Alles auf kleiner Flamme köcheln lassen bis die Flüssigkeit etwas dicker wird. Dann den Brokkoli hinzufügen und mit der Sauce und dem Fleisch vermischen. Das Fleisch und den Brokkoli mit ein paar Sesamkörnern betstreuen.

Zu diesem Gericht passen Nudeln oder auch Reis sehr gut. Ich habe braunen Reis verwendet.

Guten Appetit!!!

    YUM! I actually have oyster sauce in the fridge all the time. I love the veggies and meat in one dish so that all I need is steamed rice. I haven’t made this for a long time, and I think this will be back to the table soon! :D

    Bookmarked! My husband loves Asian food but I’m not a big fan (shocking, I know!) I will definitely make this for him when he’s back home because I think I’d like it too without the oyster sauce! I love how the broccoli makes it a colorful dish. :)

    @ Erin: I really hope you and your hubby like it! Not sure though how it will turn out without the oyster sauce… It adds so much flavour.
