Ingredients to make Beef with broccoli:
- 1 teaspoon cornstarch
- 1 cup chicken broth
- ½ kilogram of beef steak
- ½ clove garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons chopped onion
- 1 tablespoon butter
- ¼ cup soy sauce
- ¼ cup Hoisin sauce
- 1 piece broccoli
How to make Beef with broccoli:
- In a hot pan with butter, we fry the garlic and onion, all finely chopped. Then, to continue with the Chinese recipe, add the pieces of meat and brown them, giving them the desired doneness.
2. Season the preparation with soy sauce and add the chicken broth. Let the meat boil in Chinese style. We can buy the chicken broth already made to save a little time, or make it ourselves following our simple recipe for basic chicken broth. This way, we will ensure the quality of the ingredients and the result will be a slice of much juicier meat with broccoli.
3. To finish the Chinese-style beef with broccoli recipe, we add the hoisin sauce and the previously cooked chopped broccoli. In addition, we thicken with the cornstarch. Hoisin sauce is a Chinese barbecue sauce, if you do not get it you can substitute it with Maggie seasoning.
As you can see, in this recipe we use neither salt nor bell pepper because the flavor is given by all the sauces, anyway check the seasoning and correct it by adding any of these two ingredients to taste. If you want, you can add other ingredients such as carrots, dwarf corn, or mushrooms. We have opted for mushrooms.
4. Let stand for a few minutes and serve the Chinese-style broccoli and beef recipe with Chinese rice or noodles. What did you think of the recipe? If you have prepared this meal, don’t hesitate and leave us a comment!
