Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry

This is a beef and broccoli stir fry made with ground beef instead of sliced beef. Served on plain rice it's spicy and delicious. Add your favourite vegetables to create something perfect for your family or try it this way. Chopping the vegetables is the only thing that requires effort here.

You will need:
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 tsp Chinese Five Spice powder
  • 2 cloves garlic- crushed
  • 1 head broccoli cut evenly (you can also use most of the tender stalk)
  • 1/2 onion
  • handful of sliced mushrooms
  • 4 green onions/scallions
  • fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup water
  • chopped peanuts or sesame seeds or cashews 
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp chili garlic sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2-3 tbsp orange juice
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger
  • 1/2 tsp sichuan peppercorns

Step 1: brown your ground beef in a saute pan. Remove.
Step 2: in a small bowl add all your ingredients for sauce. Set aside.

Step 3: on high heat, saute your onions and the sliced stalk if you are using it.

Step 4: add your mushrooms and broccoli and saute for a few minutes. Add the water to steam the broccoli and you can put on lid of pan for 1 minute. Once you have steamed the broccoli continue the rest of the cooking with the lid off.

Step 5: add back the meat and continue cooking another minute or two. At the last minute add your sauce and cook another minute or two.

Serve over plain rice and top with chopped cilantro, some peanuts or sesame seeds or all of them.
