Chinese food is relatively simple if you have the right ingredients, which you can most likely pick up at your local grocer for a few dollars. Once you have all your ingredients prepared, the cooking process only takes a few minutes. Put your rice on ahead of time so everything is ready to go once the chicken has cooked.
Time: One hour and 30 minutes
- 4 tbsp vegetable oil
- 750g rump steak, cut into thing strips
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1 onion, thickly sliced
- 1 red capsicum, sliced
- 2 cups broccoli florets, blanched
- 3 cloves garlic, crushed
- 1-2 teaspoons chilli paste
- 3/4 cup hoisin sauce
- 1/2 cup water
- Rice to serve
Marinate sliced beef with the soy sauce, sesame oil and 1 teaspoon of the chilli paste (optional) for at least 30 minutes.
In a wok or large frying pan, heat half of the vegetable oil over a high heat. Cook the strips of beef for 2-3 minutes and then remove from pan and set aside.
Heat the remaining oil and add in the onion and chilli paste, stir-frying for a minute, followed by the garlic, capsicum and blanched broccoli. Stir the mixture as it cooks, waiting until the onions become translucent, about 3-4 minutes.
Add in the most of the hoisin sauce and the beef strips. See if you need more hoisin sauce and add the rest if necessary. Add the water a little at a time to thin out the sauce. Stir-fry for 2 more minutes, serving with white or brown rice.
