Recipe Details


This dinner is inspired by beef and broccoli, one of our all-time favorite Chinese takeout dishes. Here, tender steak slices are stir-fried with green beans, sweet peppers, ginger, and garlic. A simple and flavorful seasoning of oyster sauce, soy, and rice wine vinegar makes for saucy perfection that’s extra tasty over hearty brown rice. Why order in when you can do it better yourself?
