In less than 30 minutes, you can make a delicious beef broccoli dish at home without going out whenever you crave Chinese food!

I have got plenty of practice in cooking and tweaking American Chinese food at home. Today, I want to share a special version of Beef Broccoli with ya! It’s classic, easy and delicious!

Why is it special?

Other than beef and broccoli as main ingredients, we are going to add mushrooms to bring more flavor and nutrition to this dish. Not to mention that it takes zero effort to cook mushrooms.

The key to this recipe is two sauces – the marinade and the cooking sauce.

Unlike most beef broccoli recipes, I marinate beef with red wine instead of Sherry. Red wine is so accessible, and it doesn’t have to be fancy. A 5-buck bottle works just fine!

Worcestershire sauce is another perfect match for beef, of course! It goes into our cooking sauce with oyster sauce and brown sugar, making the final touch of this famous Chinese dish speechlessly delicious.

Get the two sauces ready. You are good to go! In less than 30 minutes, you will have a classic and uber-flavored beef broccoli with Mushroom that goes extremely well with rice. Go pour yourself a glass of wine and enjoy!

Now, I have questions for you. How often do you crave Chinese food? Once a week? Once a month? Would you like to see more 30-minute Chinese recipes so that you can make them at home without having to go out whenever you feel like Chinese food? Let me know in the comments. Cheers!

Description

In less than 30 minutes, you can make a classic Red Wine Beef Broccoli With Mushroom at home without having to go out whenever you crave Chinese food!


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1 pound beef sirloin, thinly sliced
  • 3 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 cups white or crimini mushroom, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 slices fresh ginger
  • 3 cloves garlic, pressed or minced

For the beef marinade:

  • 1 tablespoon red wine
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

For the cooking sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

Instructions

  1. Stir together the beef marinade ingredients in a medium bowl until cornstarch is dissolved. Add prepared beef into the marinade and coat well. Set aside.
  2. Prepare the cooking sauce by mixing the sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Stir well.
  3. Heat a large skillet or sauté pan over high heat until a drop of water sizzles. Add vegetable oil and swirl.
  4. Place ginger and garlic into the pan and quickly add beef, then immediately spread out beef in a single layer. Cook until beef reaches desired doneness (about 1-2 minutes).
  5. Remove beef from the pan and set aside. Use the remaining oil in the pan, cook broccoli over high heat for 3 minutes, and then stir in mushroom. Cook for another 2 minutes or until the broccoli is tender-crisp.
  6. Return beef to the pan and pour the cooking sauce over all the ingredients. Stir for another 30 seconds until even. Serve over rice.
