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.

1 head broccoli, cut in florets
3 tbsp oyster sauce
2 tbsp soy sauce
