  • 1 lb (450g) flank steak, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ginger, minced
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup beef broth or water
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Cooked rice, for serving


  1. Marinate the Beef:
    • In a bowl, combine thinly sliced flank steak with soy sauce, minced garlic, minced ginger, and a pinch of black pepper. Let it marinate for at least 20 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
  2. Prepare the Sauce:
    • In a separate bowl, mix together soy sauce, oyster sauce, brown sugar, cornstarch, and beef broth (or water). Stir until the cornstarch is fully dissolved. This will be your stir fry sauce.
  3. Stir Fry:
    • Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the marinated beef slices in a single layer, allowing them to sear without overcrowding the pan. Cook for 1-2 minutes on each side until browned and cooked through. Remove the beef from the skillet and set aside.
  4. Cook Broccoli:
    • In the same skillet, add a bit more oil if needed, then toss in the broccoli florets. Stir-fry for 2-3 minutes until they turn bright green and become slightly tender. You can cover the skillet to steam the broccoli for a minute or two if desired.
  5. Combine:
    • Return the cooked beef to the skillet with the broccoli. Pour the stir fry sauce over the beef and broccoli. Stir well to coat everything evenly in the sauce. Allow the sauce to thicken slightly, cooking for an additional 1-2 minutes.
  6. Serve:
    • Once the sauce has thickened and everything is heated through, remove the skillet from the heat. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper if needed. Serve the stir fry broccoli beef hot over cooked rice.
  7. Garnish:
    • For an extra burst of freshness and color, you can garnish the dish with chopped green onions or sesame seeds before serving.
