Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Beef — For tender beef, choose a lean cut such as sirloin or tenderloin. Slice the beef thinly against the grain to ensure tenderness.
  • Bavarian mustard — Use a good quality Bavarian mustard for authentic flavor. If unavailable, you can substitute with a spicy brown mustard.
  • Broccoli — To retain its vibrant green color and crispness, blanch the broccoli florets in boiling water for 1 minute before stir-frying.

Tips & Tricks

  • For a richer flavor, marinate the beef in a mixture of Bavarian mustard, garlic, and soy sauce for 30 minutes before cooking.
  • If you prefer a thicker sauce, mix an additional tablespoon of flour with a little water and add it to the skillet while the sauce is simmering.
  • Serve the Bavarian Beef & Broccoli over a bed of Bavarian-style mashed potatoes for a complete Bavarian meal.

Serving advice

Serve the Bavarian Beef & Broccoli hot, garnished with fresh parsley, alongside a generous portion of Bavarian-style mashed potatoes.

Presentation advice

Arrange the Bavarian Beef & Broccoli on a large serving platter, with the vibrant green broccoli florets contrasting against the tender slices of beef. Drizzle some of the Bavarian sauce over the top for an appetizing presentation.
