Beef and Broccoli in Oyster Sauce

Beef and Broccoli in Oyster Sauce

A lot of people mistaken this for a Chinese food, even me have been fooled.  Its only partly true as the original Chinese beef which is called “Beijing Beef” and it uses the Chinese broccoli (gai-lan) rather than the brocolli we know of.  This dish is a revision so that it would suit the Western palate and more spcifically the American taste, thus making the dish American Chinese dish.

A vary easy to cook meal which would not take more than 10 minutes of your time.


500g beef tenderloin, cut in thin strips
1 head broccoli, cut in florets
3 tbsp oyster sauce
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1/4 cup chinese wine
1 tsp cornstarch
4 cloves garlic, minced
freshly ground black pepper
peanut oil
1/8 cup water


  1. In a pot boil water with oil and pinch of salt.
  2. Once boiling add brocolli an quickly cook for 1-2 minutes.  Drain then set aside
  3. Mix beef with cornstarch, 1/8 cup chinese wine and salt mixure.  Set aside.
  4. Heat up the wok in high heat add oil and saute garlic.
  5. Add the beef and mushroom and quickly stir fry, still in high heat.
  6. Add oyster sauce, soy sauce, chinese wine and water, bring to a boil
  7. Pour over brocolli.
