This is a 10 minute recipe but you can turn this into a 30 minute dinner by putting your rice on before you start.
Beef and Broccoli in Oyster Sauce is a classic example of one of my “I am too lazy to cook” recipes! Must have got it from my mum as I do recall her making this regularly when we were kids! A very quick and easy recipe, the exact ratio of broccoli to beef is really up to taste. Increase or decrease as you fancy. If you get your butcher to slice the beef for you, you’ll be saving even more time when cooking it.
The cut of beef used is very important; because we are just flash frying here, very quickly, so we need tender cuts of beef that require minimum cooking. Tender cuts come from the middle – the rib and loin – as these are support muscles that have less connective tissue because they get less exercise.
What’s perfect for this recipe?
Sirloin – lean and boneless, great for all quick cooking, my favourite
Rib Eye – probably with the most flavour but fattier
Fillet Steaks – very lean and tender
Rump Steaks – firmer but full of flavour
Feather Steaks – taken from the blade, not as well known and are relatively inexpensive. I quite like these, you get flavour without the price tag
Oh, and I love lots of ginger in this!
