Easy Asian Beef Stir Fry

IMG_1414

This beef stir fry is one of my husbands favorites. He’s not really into the Asian cuisine and there seems to be only certain Asian dishes that he will eat. This one is definitely a tasty one and its ‘s easy to prep. There is not a big ingredient list and the few ingredients that the recipe calls for can probably be found in most grocery stores. If you ask me, I think it’s so similar to something P.F Chang’s would serve. 

This dish is very light on the stomach and the broccoli and beef  go so well together creating a light and delicious meal. I highly recommend the peanut and sesame oil this recipe calls for, as it really emphasizes the Asian flavors. Of coarse you can probably get away will vegetable oil and omit the sesame oil but I really like how it brings out the flavors. I really think you should try this even if you don’t seem to like Asian food because it’s not as overpowering or sweet as some other dishes may seem at times. This not only tastes really good but makes a wonderful presentation and is pretty quick to throw together. So lets begin…

Ingredients:

Cook long-grain white rice according to package instructions. (I love to use Botan, Calrose Rice for many Asian cuisines. You can find it in walmart in the asian aisle. It’s the white bag with a red rose on the center of the bag.)

Thinly slice the beef and toss in a medium bowl along with 1/2 cup of stir fry sauce and 1/3 cup of mae ploy sweet chili sauce. You can add 2 tbsp of oyster sauce if you want to add more flavor, but thats totally optional and the dish will still come out super tasty.

Heat a large wok or large non-stick frying pan over High heat. When pan is smoking hot add 2 tbsp of peanut oil and 1 tsp of sesame oil; swirl to coat and add the broccoli florets. Sear broccoli and add 1/4 cup of water and 1 tbsp of soy sauce to the broccoli; cover with a lid, reduce the heat and steam the broccoli for 3 minutes. Remove broccoli and set aside into a bowl.
