Oyster Beef With Broccoli

Labels: { , , }

This is a rather convenient and delicious Chinese stir-fry. It comes with broccoli florets and thinly cut beef slices, sirloin or rump steak, gently blanched in hot oil and stir-fried with ginger, spring onion and garlic and well-enhanced with oyster sauce.

  • 300 g Broccoli florets
  • 1 clove Garlic, crushed
  • 1/3 tsp Salt
  • 1/3 tsp Chicken bouillon powder
  • 350 g Rump steak, sliced into thin strips
  • Sunflower oil
  • 3-5 Ginger slices
  • 1 stalk Spring onion, sliced
  • 1 clove Garlic, sliced
  • 1 tbsp Oyster sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp Water
  • 1 tbsp Oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp Maggi sauce
  • 1 tsp Cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp Water
  • 1 tbsp Chinese rice wine
  • White pepper powder to taste
  1. Cut the beef across the grain into thin slices. Add in marinade and set aside for 20 minutes. Combine the ingredients of sauce in a bowl and set aside. Wash and drain the broccoli florets.
  2. Heat a large skillet with half cup of oil to 150C/300F. Add the marinated beef slices, stirring to separate, cook until the colour of beef has changed and nearly cooked. Remove the beef and drain on paper towels.
  3. In another skillet, heat 2 tablespoons oil until hot, add the crushed garlic, stirring briefly until aromatic. Add the broccoli florets, sprinkle the salt and chicken bouillon powder over, and cook the broccoli, for 5 minutes, until they are tender but still crunchy. Remove and arrange broccoli florets around the edge of a serving plate, leaving the stems towards the center.
  4. Clean the skillet and add a tablespoon of oil. Add in sliced ginger, spring onion, and garlic. Stir until aromatic. Return the beef to the skillet. Whisk the sauce to recombine, then add to the skillet, stirring quickly to thicken. Turn the heat off. Spoon the beef in the center of the serving plate. Serve immediately with steamed rice.

I seriously have never tried Oyster sauce and just bought a bottle searching for the perfect recipe...this is it! The only change will be Chicken instead of beef...perfect timing thanks so much! Fabulous recipe!!

Unknown 12/1/11 12:50

With brocolli sure a healthy one...looks very invitng

Liz That Skinny Chick Can Bake 12/1/11 12:55

One of my favorite dishes to order at a Chinese restaurant...I have a feeling yours is even better!

Paul Jennette 12/1/11 13:05

I'll have to admit, I really have never tried my hand at homemade Asian delights. I really have no idea how hard it would be. Any tips or tricks you could pass along for beginners?? And what is Maggi sauce??

Barbara @ Modern Comfort Food 12/1/11 13:30

I'm bookmarking this delicious looking recipe to make this week, Angie. What a great way to use the current harvest from my garden's exuberant broccoli plants!

TasteHongKong 12/1/11 13:31

Though homely, I also adore how elegantly you presented this : ).

Angie's Recipes 12/1/11 13:39

@Paul Jennette
Maggi seasoning is basically a mix of water, salt,sugar..etc. I used it here instead of light Chinese soya sauce.
Paul,if you haven't prepared any Chinese dishes at home before, I would recommend to get some bottled sauces (like those from Lee Kum Kee)to play with first, you know..they really help you to get a hang of some Chinese food.

Shirley @ Kokken69 12/1/11 13:40

Ah, this is one classic dish not only for us in Asia - but a staple dish in American Chinese restaurants!

Belinda @zomppa 12/1/11 13:47

I would never go out to eat if I ate at your house.

Nisrine | Dinners and Dreams 12/1/11 14:12

Delicious dish Angie. Looks pretty too!

Finla 12/1/11 14:23

I always do chicken with oyster sauce and mushroom but have not done with beef, look yumm.

Unknown 12/1/11 14:30

What a lovely dish...it's almost too pretty to eat...almost :)

Rosa's Yummy Yums 12/1/11 15:52

I am a big fan of oyster sauce. This dish is perfect. Yummy!



ann low 12/1/11 15:52

Home cooked dish is the best like this lovely dish. I can eat this with extra rice.
And Angie, thank you very much for sharing the Avocado Creamcheese Cookies, my family really loved it :)

Joy F. 12/1/11 16:07

Oyster Sauce is probably one of my favourite Chinese sauces, that and black bean. The beef in your recipe looks so tender, as if it could just melt.

Mother Rimmy 12/1/11 16:31

I love oyster sauce. This looks much like the dish I order at our local restaurant. It's my favorite. I can't wait to give this a try.

Ivy 12/1/11 18:43

Great presentation and although I don't cook broccoli often as my children don't even want to smell it, I love it. The beef also sounds delicious with ginger.

Georgia | The Comfort of Cooking 12/1/11 18:55

What a delicious, flavorful beef dish! I love your beautiful presentation with the broccoli and tomatoes flanking the beef, too. You're just as talented behind the lens as you are in the kitchen! Thanks for sharing, Angie. I hope you have had a great start to the week!

Such a beautiful plate. This must be the best way to eat broccoli. I love it! Great recipe Angie!


Angie, this reminds me of a dish I ate at an amazing restaurant years ago. Oh the memories! Will try soon.

tasteofbeirut 13/1/11 06:57

maameemoomoo@ ½ food blog 13/1/11 09:59

Not sure why but this dish reminds me of CNY!

Perhaps it's the way the broccoli is placed... :)

Joyti 13/1/11 12:29

You know, this looks fresh and healthy - and it looks like it would be great with soy/wheat gluten beef. Yum!

Carolyn 13/1/11 12:35

Oyster sauce is good stuff, it really adds great flavour to stir fries. This one looks especially tasty!

Joanne 13/1/11 13:25

This sounds like it is truly bursting with flavor from the oyster sauce and the ginger!

Anonymous 13/1/11 14:21

The marinade and the sauce with the oyster sauce must bring fantastic flavors to the beef, an excellent meal!

Biren @ Roti n Rice 13/1/11 15:13

Beef stir-fry is delicious and I do it every now and then. I love your presentation of the dish. It looks gorgeous!

Elisabeth 13/1/11 15:33

I better get my stir-fry pan out because, beef stir fry, with broccoli is one of the favorites, that I like to make, and with the addition of the oyster sauce...yummm! Delish!!!
Beautiful presentation, as always!!!

Mary Bergfeld 13/1/11 17:33

I love the simplicity of your recipe and I have a weakness for anything made with oyster sauce. Your stir-fry looks delicious. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

Namitha 13/1/11 19:56

You have tempted me enough to get some oyster sauce soon and try out this :-)Looks wonderful

whatsfordinneracrossstatelines 13/1/11 20:50

This is one of my all-time favorites. I think this is one of the first things I learned how to make when I got married. I think your recipe is a little better, next time, i'm trying it your way! Have a great weekend.

Anna's Table 13/1/11 21:00

Angie, another delicious looking recipe. I've only ever used fish sauce in Asian recipes. Are the flavours similar?

Devaki 13/1/11 22:44

This is one of my fave meals and THANKS for posting such a nice recipe Angie...a staple for sure :)

chow! Devaki@weavethousandflavors

Cooking with Coley 14/1/11 03:38

I'm hooked on using ginger lately. It really enhances any asian dish. I've never bought oyster sauce though - I think I am missing out!

tigerfish 14/1/11 04:07

I agree. When I first saw the photo, I thought of CNY! ;p

Monet 14/1/11 06:03

Hi Angie! What a beautiful dish. I loved how you arranged the broccoli around the meat...what a great way to present this. Thank you for sharing your recipe and thoughts with me tonight. I hope you have a great weekend. I'm so glad Friday is almost here!

My Little Space 14/1/11 06:08

Lovely lovely lovely... perfect for the reunion dinner! Hope you're having a wonderful day.
Cheers, Kristy

Bakericious 14/1/11 08:24

the beef looks so tender and I love broccoli too, looks very tempting.

MaryMoh 14/1/11 11:47

Mmm...I love this dish. I'm also cooking beef today, for lunch and dinner. But sadly I don't have broccoli. Can't believe there was no broccoli in the supermarket today. I think I went there too early this morning.

sweetlife 14/1/11 16:19

great dish, I would love this for lunch, I recently saw maggi sauce at the store..i will pick up some the next time out! thanks


A Canadian Foodie 14/1/11 17:21
