“AKwan’s Kitchen” – Episode 3: Beef and Broccoli

In this episode, AKwan teaches you how to make the typical Asian dish of beef and broccoli stir-fry. Recipe and video after the jump.

Ingredients (serves 4):
– beef (flank or sirloin will do)
– broccoli
– garlic cloves (chopped)
– white pepper powder
– salt
– sugar
– soy sauce

1.) Cut beef into thin strips.
2.) Marinate beef in salt, white pepper, sugar, and soy sauce. Let sit for a few minutes so flavor can be absorbed into the beef.
3.) When oil is heated in a small wok/pan, put in garlic.
4.) Put in the beef into the wok.
5.) Cover and let beef cook until it’s about medium-rarish.
6.) Put in the broccoli next.
7.) Cover and cook broccoli throughly. Make sure there is enough water to generate some steam when you cover it; if not, you can add a little bit more water first.
8.) Add in some Shaoxing Cooking Wine, if you want [optional].
9.) When broccoli is almost done (it’s not as hard as before but yet it’s still crisp), put in some cornstarch/water mixture as a thickening agent so you’ll have a nice sauce too.
10.) Let the beef and broccoli cook for a few little while longer and, voila! You’re done!

Now go and enjoy your yummy beef and broccoli. Nom nom nom!

    Thanks everybody for all your support… and your suggestions too. I will definitely keep all those in my mind for future episodes. More and more ideas just keep popping up in my head for this little project of mine so be on the lookout for some new stuff too. Also, note to self: no more green vegetables for jqhuynh.

    I suppose you put STIR FRY it automatically becomes an Azn dish. =p

    I’m with Anon on this one. I want my mouth to salivate which I can’t with bright green peas and broccoli. This is just too healthy but I’m still a fan of the segment and definitely keep up the good work!

    I’m sorry man, but that looks too healthy and dry. Where’s the brown sauce? Let’s start cooking some real dishes that are complex. is beef and broccoli even a real asian dish anyway? Kind of like how I went to Italy and there was no such thing as garlic. Other than that, keep up the good work!
