- 1 lb Wagyu beef, thinly sliced against the grain
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1/2 cup beef broth
- 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
- 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 3 cups broccoli florets
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
- 1 spring onion, thinly sliced (for garnish)
- Sesame seeds (for garnish)
In a bowl, marinate the thinly sliced Wagyu beef with soy sauce and cornstarch. Let it sit for 15 minutes to absorb the flavors.
In a separate bowl, prepare the sauce by combining beef broth, oyster sauce, hoisin sauce, and sesame oil. Stir until well mixed.
Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the broccoli florets and stir-fry until they're bright green and slightly tender, about 3-4 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside.
In the same pan, add the remaining tablespoon of oil. Add the garlic and ginger, stirring for about 30 seconds until aromatic.
Add the marinated Wagyu beef to the pan, spreading it out in a single layer. Let it sear for about 1 minute without stirring, then stir-fry for another minute or until it's nearly cooked through.
Pour the sauce over the beef, stirring to combine. Return the broccoli to the pan and toss everything together, ensuring the beef and broccoli are well coated in sauce.
Continue to cook for another 2 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened.
Serve your Gourmet Wagyu Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry over steamed rice, garnished with sliced spring onions and sesame seeds.
Remember: The key to a great stir-fry is a hot pan and quick cooking. This ensures your Wagyu beef stays tender and your broccoli retains its crunch. With this recipe, you'll have a luxurious version of a beloved classic that's sure to impress. Enjoy the indulgence!
