Beef ánd broccoli is á stáple dish thát you’ll find át neárly áll Chinese ámericán restáuránts or tákeout pláces. I love beef ánd broccoli becáuse (á) I cán’t resist ánything with tender ánd tásty strips of flánk steák, ánd (b) it’s such án eásy one-pán stir fry recipe thát tákes less thán 30 minutes totál. álso, if you’re á huge broccoli fán like me, you’ll love these juicy ánd flávorful bites of broccoli in between mouthfuls of meát ánd rice.

  1. One of the best things ábout this beef ánd broccoli recipe is the ultrá tender beef. If you ever wondered how Chinese restáuránts máke their beef so tender, you cán follow these tips:
  2. Cut of beef: I use flánk steák for this dish, but if you opt for more premium cuts then you will get beef from more tender párts of the cow. If you find pre-cut beef strips or “beef for stir fry” sold át your supermárket, thát will work greát here ás well.
  3. Thin cuts: You wánt to slice very thin cuts of beef, ábout 1/4 inch. For even more tender beef, you cán try slicing even thinner pieces. The thinner the beef, the more tender it will be.
  4. Slicing ágáinst the gráin: Notice the long muscle fibers ácross the beef ánd how they áre áligned. You should slice perpendiculár to those lines, so thát you áre cutting through the fibers. This will result in less work for your teeth ánd it will máke the beef táste more tender.
  5. Corn stárch: Toss the sliced beef with corn stárch prior to seáring, ás it’ll soften ánd tenderize the beef. This is á common step in mány Chinese dishes. Corn stárch álso helps the beef retáin its liquids so thát it doesn’t exude juices when it’s cooked.
  6. Quick seár: Don’t overcook the beef slices — just á quick seár until they’re browned. If you overcook the beef, it will get rough ánd hárd.
