Wednesday night, I thought I would try my hand at cooking Broccoli Beef. I rarely make Asian inspired cuisine because honestly it’s just easier to call one of our favorite restaurants and order some takeout.
I am a big fan of Cashew Chicken and Crab Rangoon, but I figured those may be a little out of my realm, so I opted for something that seemed a tad bit easier.
When looking for a recipe, I headed straight to the Steamy Kitchen site because I was pretty certain Jaden would have an amazing recipe for me to follow. My search at Steamy Kitchen led me a recipe that Jaden posted on Simply Recipes. After a quick glance through the ingredient list, I was pretty thrilled that I had everything on hand except oyster sauce. You know I hate those mid-week grocery trips, but I sucked it up and stopped into Kroger for the ingredient. Shockingly enough, my little Kroger had oyster sauce…albeit a very dusty bottle of oyster sauce.
I did adapt this recipe a little bit, spicing it up with some Sriracha and red pepper flakes. I also tossed in some toasted sesame seeds and sliced green onions, just because I’m crazy like that! I served this up with some jasmine rice and it was fabulous. Brian claimed it was better than the broccoli beef from our fave chinese restaurant. I am totally ordering Jaden’s cookbook to get inspired; hell, I may even buy a wok!
