30 Minute One Pan Beef Broccoli

Homemade beef broccoli

I’m not a huge beef broccoli fan, but I’ve recently been trying to cook some Chinese meals (here’s one of my most recent dishes that’s not technically Chinese, but it is a stir fry!) at home and I think I made the most delicious dinner out of this dish! My partner loves beef broccoli and it’s quite simply the easiest dinner to make with a few ingredients after a long day at work. The best part of most Chinese cooking is that everything is cooked super quickly in a scalding hot pan so the dishes all come together in less than 30 minutes or so! I took the recipe from Seonkyoung Longest’s blog post and I will be recommending this meal to anyone and everyone I speak to from now on. I hope you’ll try this beef broccoli and let me know how it turns out!


  • 1/2 lb Ribeye steak (pick whatever cut of meat you like most!)
  • One head of broccoli
  • One carton of cremini mushrooms
  • Three cloves of garlic
  • One small knob of ginger
  • 2 Tbsp shoyu
  • 2 Tbsp water or broth or rice wine
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 Tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 1/2 tsp white or brown sugar
  • Pepper to taste


  1. After selecting your favorite cut of beef (I love a ribeye because it has the perfect amount of fat), slice the steak into short, thin strips
  2. In a medium bowl, mix 1 Tbsp shoyu, 1 Tbsp water or broth or rice wine (I used rice wine or mirin), 1 tsp corn starch, baking soda, and pepper until everything is fully combined
  3. Put slices of beef in mixture and thoroughly incorporate so beef is covered with marinade
  4. Allow beef to marinate for a few minutes while preparing the veggies
  5. Wash and chop broccoli head into small bite-sized pieces
  6. Wash and cut mushrooms into quarters as they will eventually shrink while cooking
  7. Peel ginger and finely mince
  8. Mince cloves of garlic and set aside with ginger
  9. Bring two cups of water to a boil in a large pan
  10. While waiting for water to boil, mix sauce of 1 Tbsp shoyu, oyster sauce, sugar, 1 Tbsp mirin, 1 tsp corn starch, and pepper to taste
  11. Par boil broccoli bites for 2 minutes
  12. Dump out water and warm olive oil on high heat
  13. Briefly sauté garlic and ginger in oil and add the mushrooms to the pan
  14. Cook mushrooms for 1-2 minutes
  15. Throw beef in the pan and cook until almost browned through
  16. Pour in sauce and mix well
  17. Add broccoli and toss everything to combine
  18. Serve over rice
