Beef broccoli stir fry proves to make an amazing midweek dinner, just add some rice and you've got a lovely meal ready to go. I love how the long cooking process allows for both the beef and the broccoli to soften dramatically while constantly being infused with the ample sensational soy sauce. I highly recommend to serve the stir fry over a bed of rice or to mix it in with thick egg noodles, as the sauce is delicious and it would be a shame not to take maximum advantage of. Refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container for up to four days.

  • 1.5 kgs (2.2 lbs) thin beef strips
  • 7 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 cup soya sauce
  • 2.5 tsp minced garlic
  • 3 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tbsp sweet chili sauce
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 cups of broccoli florets
  • ½ cup whole cashews

In a large bowl, use your hands to mix in the cornstarch with the beef strips.
In a separate, small bowl, combine the soya sauce, minced garlic, sesame oil, onion powder and sweet chili sauce to create the marinade.
Pour marinade into meat bowl and mix with your hands until fully incorporated. Cover with cling wrap and place in the refrigerator over night to marinate.
Place a large saucepan over high heat and wait until the pan heats up. Pour the beef and marinade into the pan and add in water. Use a silicone spoon to stir it around for around 15 minutes to let it start cooking, the liquid should begin to boil.
Add in the Broccoli and stir through.
Place lid on top of saucepan and turn the heat down to low. Let it simmer for an hour.
In the meantime, place a small saucepan on medium-low heat and wait for it to get hot. Place cashews in the pan and use a wooden spoon to stir it around constantly. Let the cashews begin to brown, this should take 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and set aside.
Remove beef from heat and mix in the cashews. Transfer to a serving dish. Serve immediately.
