  • 1 pound beef tenderloin/sirloin - cut into thin slices
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch - for coating
  • 1 pound broccoli - cut into florets
  • 2-3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 clove garlic - minced
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dry sherry - or wine (optional)
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch - for sauce thickener
  • ground black pepper


  • In a bowl, mix together the cornstarch, salt and pepper. Add the beef slices coating each slice with the cornstarch mix.
  • Blanch the broccoli florets in boiling water for 2-3 minutes or just until they are half cooked or tender but still crisp. Remove from water and drain.
  • In a wok or saute pan, heat oil over high fire. Add beef slices and stir-fry for about 2-3 minutes. Do not overcook so the beef remains tender. Remove the beef from oil and set aside.
  • In the same oil, but over medium heat, saute garlic until slightly browned. Add the soy sauce, oyster sauce, and dry wine and let it simmer. 
  • Dissolve 1 teaspoon cornstarch in ¼ cup water. Add this to the pan and stir until sauce thickens. Add the cooked broccoli florets and beef and cook for another half a minute. Transfer to a serving plate and drizzle some oyster sauce on top.
  • Serve immediately with hot steamed rice.
