Tender steak with crunchy greens and Asian flavours are the perfect combination. Try this base with different vegetables and proteins for a ‘go to’ stir fry that feels different every time you have it.

Recipe: Beef and Broccoli Stir-fry

Prep and cooking time: 20 mins

Serves: 4

Ingredients:

  • 320g tender-stem broccoli
  • 500g flank or rump steak
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 red onion, finely sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely diced or minced
  • 6cm fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 handful fresh coriander, stems finely chopped and leaves roughly chopped
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges
  • 1 red chilli, finely sliced

Method:

  1. Place the broccoli in a heatproof bowl, cutting any thicker pieces in half lengthways. Cover with boiling water, add a pinch of salt, and leave for 10mins. Drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, slice the steaks into finger-sized strips and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a wok or large frying pan, over a medium heat. Fry the onion, garlic, ginger, and chopped coriander stems, until slightly softened.
  4. Add the remaining 1 tbsp of oil, and steak, and fry for 1-2mins, until lightly browned. Add the broccoli and fry for a further 2mins.
  5. Add the soy sauce, a squeeze of lime juice, and the coriander. Toss together until well mixed.
  6. Serve with sliced chilli on top and a squeeze of lime juice.
