Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry, a classic Chinese recipe that is quick & easy to make and taste so much better than take out!
Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry over piping hot white rice is a frequent dish in our household. There is nothing better than a tasty stir fry for dinner. So quick and easy to prepare, it is an added bonus to any home cooked meal. While I prefer to use a wok to prepare stir fries, a frying pan will work just fine. This stir fry combines beef and broccoli in a flavorful sauce made with Chinese cooking wine, oyster sauce, light soy sauce and sesame oil. Feel feel to substitute shrimp, pork or chicken for the beef, if desired.
