Almond Beef with Broccoli recipe

This Asian-inspired stir-fried beef dish is a simple and easy dish that is as filling and nutritious as it is savory. Thin beef strips are stir fried in a flavorful marinade of soy sauce, garlic and ginger, and served atop a bed of fresh broccoli. A topping of toasted almonds adds a hearty crunch to the hearty dish.

Serve with white rice if desired.


  • ¾ lb broccoli florets
  • 1/3 lb beef sirloin, cut into thin strips
  • ½ cup blanched almonds, toasted
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons white wine
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • ½ teaspoon cornstarch.
  • ½ teaspoon sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • Pinch of ground ginger
  • Boiling water


  1. In medium bowl combine beef, white wine, cornstarch, soy sauce, sugar, garlic powder and ginger. Stir gently to combine and cover. Let marinate for 30 minutes.

  2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Drop broccoli into boiling water and boil for 2 minutes to blanch. Plunge broccoli into cold water and drain. Set aside.

  3. Add 2 Tbsp of olive oil in a large wok or skillet over high heat. Add broccoli and fry for 2 minutes. Remove to serving plate.

  4. Add remaining olive oil to pan, and heat. Add beef and fry for 1 minute, reserving marinade.

  5. Add marinade and lower heat slightly. Stir until beef is glazed and marinade is reduced. Serve on top of broccoli, and sprinkle with almonds.
