Thai Stir Fried Beef with Oyster Sauce and Broccoli Recipe
Seconds Before Getting Devoured!
Here’s a vegetable friendly version of a perennial Thai favorite – beef with oyster sauce. This is easy and quick and everyone at your table will like it a lot – can’t ask for more than that in a meal!
Although much of Thai cooking relies on chili heat for backbone – This authentic recipe requires no chili, and thus is suitable for children and those less fond of chili heat!
Since such a small amount of beef is needed for this dish, and since any cut of meat will work well here, it’s a good idea to just slice a chunk off a larger piece of meat before you cook your pot roast or roast beef dinner on Sunday. That way, you’ve got Monday’s dinner (or whatever day) covered without needing another trip to the grocery store!
Thai Stir Fried Beef with Oyster Sauce and Broccoli
- 150 grams of thinly sliced beef, sirloin works very well here, but really, any cut of beef will do just fine here
- 4 baby corns, cut into julienned slices. If you don’t have baby corn, about a half cup of julienned carrots or sliced mushrooms can work as good substitutes
- 1 cup of broccoli florets, sliced
- 2 green onions, cut into 2 inch segments
- 1 clove of garlic, minced
- 2 Tbls of oyster sauce
- 1 tsp of soy sauce
- 1 tsp of fish sauce
- 1 tsp of sugar
- ¾ cup of water
- A few turns of the pepper grinder (1/4 tsp or so of black pepper)
- 1 Tbls of corn starch
- A little oil for stir frying
- Marinate the beef in the oyster sauce for at least 15 minutes or so, and for up to a couple of hours prior to cooking
- Take 1 Tbls of the water and in a small bowl, mix with the 1 Tbls of cornstarch until smooth. Reserve
- Heat a wok or large heavy fry pan over medium high heat, and add a couple of Tbls of vegetable oil.
- When the oil is hot, add the garlic and stir fry for about 15 seconds, or until it is fragrant, and then add the beef in, right away
- Stir fry the beef for about 30 seconds and then add in the broccoli and corn
- Add in the soy sauce, the fish sauce, the pepper and the sugar, and continue stir frying the mixture for another minute or so and then add in the water.
- Bring the water up to a boil and the drizzle in the cornstarch.
- Let the mixture cook until the sauce is thickened and the vegetables are cooked to your liking, another minute or so.
- Turn the heat off, toss in the green onions and then serve!
