2 bundles of Chinese Broccoli sliced
1 beef roast sliced thin
1 1/2 onion sliced
3 cloves garlic chopped
1 cup ginger root sliced thin
1 cup beef broth
Red cooking wine
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 tablespoons red pepper powder
1 tablespoon sesame oil
2 tablespoons flour
Equipment: Large Wok
So today I had a craving for Chinese broccoli. It’s like a leafy broccoli whose stalks have a crunch and tops cook down like other leafy vegetables. 2 bundles should be sufficient for a family of four so that’s what I buy. I have to go to an Asian grocery store (O-mart) in Killeen, to get it because it’s not sold at Walmart or H.E.B. Well worth it though. Pictured below is the broccoli. See how completely different it looks!
I also use a red pepper powder I get from O-mart just as an FYI.
This is very easy and nutritious to make. Remember stir-fries save working moms lives! Marinade your meat before dealing with the vegetables. Season it with red pepper powder, a little soy sauce, sea salt, black pepper, sesame oil, and a little red wine. Mix in the flour so there is a slight coating on it. Set it aside and prepare your vegetables.
To prepare the broccoli, I chop the stalks off and dice them. Then slice the leafy part. I separate them because they cook at different rates.
Combine your ginger, onions, and garlic in a wok with a little vegetable oil. Sprinkle salt, pepper, and a little soy sauce. Begin to saute them on medium heat for a few minutes.
Then add your broccoli stalks and continue to saute.
After about 5 mins add the meat and stir until its starts to brown and mixes with the veggies. Pour in beef broth and let it simmer. Then finally add the leafy part of the broccoli. Put a cover over it and step away for about 5 minutes. Then remove the top and start mixing the uncooked broccoli in deeper and bring the cooked down broccoli to the top along with meat and veggies. Mix in more salt, pepper, soy sauce and now ginger powder. Once your meat is cooked through and all your broccoli leaves are cooked down you can serve over Jasmine rice.
