I was making this for dinner last night, and when my husband walked in the door from work he yelled out "It smells like my mom's house in here! I love it!"
Beef & Broccoli
1-1 1/2 lbs beef sirloin, sliced into thin strips against the grain
2-3 cups broccoli florets
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp red pepper flakes
2 tbsp vegetable oil
3 tbsp cornstarch
4 tbsp oyster sauce
3 tbsp sesame oil
3/4 cup water
1 tsp MSG (sub with salt if you don't use MSG or omit altogether)
1 tsp sugar
In a small bowl combine cornstarch, oyster sauce, sesame oil, water, MSG and sugar until well combined and cornstarch is dissolved.
In a large skillet or wok, heat 2 tbsp vegetable oil until hot.
Add the garlic and red pepper flakes.
Stir fry for about a minute; then add beef.
Cook beef until no longer pink and until desired crispness.
Pour the oyster sauce mixture over the beef; coat beef well.
Add the broccoli to beef.
Continue cooking until sauce coats all the beef and broccoli.
Serve over rice.
