    Beef and broccoli is one of those classic Chinese dishes that everyone has enjoyed at some point in their life. For me, this signature stir-fry reminds me of my middle sister Jessie who would order it every time we went out for Chinese food or ordered take-out.

    If you’ve never tried making it at home, I urge you to give it a shot. The entire dish comes together in just 20 minutes and by making it at home, you can make it your own.

    Love ginger? Double the amount. Want to make it spicy? Add more chili paste. No sirloin steak on hand? Try flank or flat-iron.

    The broccoli is cooked until bright green in a fragrant sauce made with fresh ginger, toasted sesame oil and sweet hoisin sauce.

    Right before serving, I like to sprinkle the dish with fresh scallions. Toasted black sesame seeds or minced peanuts would add great texture too.

    Your chop sticks are waiting.
