Chinese beef and broccoli

Does anyone know how to make it? My husband loves to order that stuff, so I've been trying to figure out how to make it just right. My guess is it uses oyster sauce, a bit of soy sauce and sesame oil...?

I've never followed a real recipe, but we've made it with beef, broccoli, bean sprouts, onion, garlic, ginger, grren pepper, sesame oil, peanut oil, rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, beef sotck, corn starch, andf a dash of red pepper.

...that sounds like it might work. I've been planning on making it tomorrow, I think I'll follow my beef with oyster sauce recipe and replace some ingredients. I'll let you know what I end up improvising for the sauce

Here is how I make mine:

Broccoli - I cut mine into florets and then add them to salted boiling water for a minute and then drain and put it under cold water. This helps seal the color. I then drain and reserve it on the side.

I buy the beef thinly sliced (it says or stir frys). About 1/4 pound or so. I buy it in a pack.

I then finely mince about 3 cloves of garlic and grate 1/2 inch stick of ginger.

I make a sauce as follows:

3 tbsp of oyster sauce
2 tbsp of dark soy sauce
1 tsp of sesame oil
1 tsp of sambal or any other spicy chilli sauce
1/2 tsp of corn starch
2 tbsps of water

I stir all of these in a bowl.

I then heat up a wok or deep saute pan. I then add a tbsp of oil to it and add the ginger and garlic and saute it for a second and then immediately add the beef and stir it rigorously until the beef is no longer pink. Next I add the broccoli and the sauce and cook it on high for another few minutes.

I sprinkle some toasted sesame seeds on top of it and serve it with rice.

Ha! Yakuta, that's pretty much what I had figured out, quantities and all.
But since I didn't have much time to experiment I ended up using a packet of chinese beef & brocoli sauce It wasn't exactly like the restaurant but it was still delicious. Next time, I will try your recipe.

A pinch of baking soda in the water will make the broccoli even greener and it won't turn later.
