Mouthwatering Beef and Broccoli


  • Marinate the beef sirloin in a separate bowl by adding sesame oil, bbq sauce, ketchup, brown sugar, salt, white granulated sugar, white pepper, black pepper, & a pinch of MSG (optional). Set beef aside and let marinate while prepping other ingredients.
  • In a separate small bowl, add cornstarch to warm water and stir well to remove all lumps. Set aside to be used later.
  • On medium heat, drizzle pan or wok with Olive/Vegetable Oil. Then add minced garlic to the oil to cook for about 2 minutes or until fragrant. Do not let the garlic burn or it will taste bitter and crunchy. (I’ve made this mistake once too many times. :/)
  • Add the marinated beef to the hot pan or wok. Cook for about 5 minutes or until beef is done to desired wellness. Stir frequently to keep from burning.
  • Lower your heat from medium to low and add the cornstarch mixture and the soy sauce to the cooked beef sirloin while stirring frequently. May need more water if the mixture is too thick or starts to burn due to high heat.
  • Add all remaining vegetables to your wok: red onions, broccoli, carrots, water chestnuts, pea pods, & baby corn. Stir Fry quickly and make sure everything is well coated with sauce, about 15-30 minutes from the start of heating until ready to serve.
  • Serve on a platter with a side of your favorite cooked white or brown rice.
  • Optional: garnish with a handful of sliced scallions (green onions) or a few sprigs of cilantro right before serving.
  • Enjoy!
