Broccoli is one of my most hated vegetables as a kid. I think generally all kids do. Initially I guess. The fact that its so green and looks like a tiny tree doesn't help with its over all image. But if I were a PR manager for this vegetable, I'd be highlighting its nutritional qualities! Broccoli in fact is high in Vitamin C and great as a dietary fibre. Studies also reveal that broccoli consumption is shown to be beneficial in the prevention of heart disease! So let's 'broccoli' y'all!
This dish is a post for this week's (Week 6) Power Food blog hop hosted by Mireya from My Healthy Eating Habits.
To make this simple Asian dish, you'll need:
400g sirloin beef, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, finely diced
1/4 cup ginger, julienned
1 onion, quartered
2 bunch/florets brocolli, cut into pieces
2 tablespoons oyster sauce
salt & pepper to taste
In a skillet or pan, heat about a 2 tablespoon of vegetable oil. Add the garlic and ginger and stir until fragrant. Do not burn.
Add the beef and sear until browned - 10 to 15 minutes depending on how thinly sliced the beef is.
Add the oyster sauce and the onions and stir through to coat.
Simmer for 5-10 minutes until the beef is cooked through.
Add the broccoli and simmer and cover, or let simmer for 2 minutes.
Season with salt and pepper and drizzle about a teaspoon of sesame oil.
Take off from heat.
This is a simple dish we usually prepare at home, served with steamed jasmine rice. Also great mixed with egg or Singapore style noodles
