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.
  • Dutch mustard — Use a good quality Dutch mustard for an authentic flavor. If unavailable, you can substitute with Dijon mustard.
  • Broccoli — To retain its vibrant green color and crispness, steam the broccoli until it is tender-crisp. Avoid overcooking.

Tips & Tricks

  • For a richer flavor, marinate the beef in the sauce mixture for 30 minutes before cooking.
  • Add a splash of white wine to the sauce for an extra layer of flavor.
  • Garnish with chopped fresh parsley or chives for a pop of color.
  • Serve with a side of Dutch-style fries for a complete meal.
  • Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
