Sesame Beef and Broccoli


2 1/4 cups broccoli, cut into florets, stalks peeled and diced
2 green onions/scallions, thinly sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
240 g rib eye steak, or strip loin, cut into 2 cm strips
1 3/4 tsp sesame seeds
2 tsp canola oil
1/3 cup water
2/3 cup chicken broth
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp cornstarch
1 pinch salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]
1 tsp sesame seed oil



  1. Prepare the vegetables : Cut the broccoli florets into small pieces, peel the stalks then dice them into ½ cm pieces. Thinly slice the scallions and mince the garlic. Cut the beef perpendicular to the grain into 2 cm strips. Set aside.
  2. Put the sesame seeds in a small pan and heat them over medium heat a few minutes, with some stirring, until they are lightly coloured. Set aside.
  3. Heat the oil in a skillet over high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the beef then sauté, stirring occasionally, until golden-brown, about 4-5 min. Season with salt and pepper, then take the beef out of the skillet and transfer it to a plate.
  4. Add the scallions and garlic to the skillet. Cook over medium heat about 1 min, with stirring, until they are lightly golden-coloured, then add the broccoli and water. Cook, with occasional stirring, until the mixture is dry, about 3 min. Meanwhile, combine the broth, soy sauce, and cornstarch in a small bowl, then pour this mixture over the broccoli. Cook, with constant stirring, until the mixture is no longer cloudy, 1-2 min.
  5. Put the beef and any accumulated meat juices back into the skillet. Cook, with stirring, until the beef is heated through, 1-2 min. Remove the skillet from the heat, then stir in the sesame oil and seeds. Serve.
