“Beef” and Broccoli


Recipe taken from here.

serves 2 people.

1 packet of Gardein Beef Tips
1.5 tbsp soy sauce

Mix together in a small bowl and set aside.

1 c white long grain rice
3 c water

Add to pot, cover, set on high, set timer for 20 mins. Once it starts to boil (keep a close eye on it!), turn it down to the lowest setting. Once it’s done, leave the lid on, turn off heat and let it sit for another 10 mins.

In the meantime, whisk together:

1.5 tsp dry sherry/cooking sherry
1 tbsp veggie broth
2.5 tbsp vegetarian oyster or hoisin sauce
1.5 tsp brown sugar
0.5 tsp toasted sesame oil
0.5 tsp cornstarch

Set aside and then in a separate small bowl mix:

3 cloves minced garlic
1 tsp of ground ginger (or fresh ginger)
1 tsp peanut oil

Set aside. Chop up the following:

4 c of broccoli florets
1 red or yellow pepper (dice)

Heat a non-stick pan on med-high, add 2 tsp peanut oil, throw in the beef tips/soy sauce and stir briskly till browned (3 mins or so). Remove from pan, set aside, add broccoli and stir for about a minute, then add 3 tbsp of water, put a lid on, turn the heat down to med-low and steam for a few minutes – till just tender. Remove broccoli and add the bowl with the beef. Turn heat back up on the pan, add another 2 tsp peanut oil, throw in the pepper and stir till it starts to brown, about a minute. Add the garlic/ginger mix and stir another minute. Add the meat/brocc back into the pan, along with the sauce you made earlier. Stir to coat for a couple of mins, then cover, turn off heat. Your rice should be done right about now, so it’s ready to serve!

Nutritional information includes 1.5 c of cooked rice per serving.

** I just realised I cut off the vitamin A part when i shopped the nutritional label: it’s 56%.

  1. This looks so good! Before I was a vegetarian I used to get beef and broccoli from chinese takeout all the time… I didn’t realize how much I missed it until I read this post. I’m going to have to try this, it sounds even better than the real thing!

  2. it was pretty tasty! not as good as pf chang’s but then there isn’t nearly as much oil as in one of those dishes. and look how nutritious it is!! next time i make it, i’m gonna try a simplified version of it IN A CROCKPOT (!!?!!). will post it if it comes out edible.
