Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Beef — For the best results, choose a high-quality cut of beef like tenderloin or sirloin. Slice the beef thinly against the grain to ensure tenderness.
  • Broccoli — Blanching the broccoli helps retain its vibrant color and crisp texture. Be careful not to overcook it, as it should still have a slight crunch.

Tips & Tricks

  • To add an extra touch of elegance, garnish the dish with toasted sesame seeds or thinly sliced scallions.
  • For a spicier twist, add a pinch of red pepper flakes or a drizzle of chili oil to the sauce.
  • If you prefer a thicker sauce, mix 1 teaspoon of cornstarch with 1 tablespoon of water and add it to the skillet during the final minutes of cooking.

Serving advice

Serve the Beef & Broccoli Nouvelle Cuisine over a bed of steamed jasmine rice or alongside a delicate quinoa pilaf. The dish pairs beautifully with a crisp white wine or a light-bodied red.

Presentation advice

Arrange the beef slices and broccoli florets artfully on the plate, drizzling the sauce over them. Garnish with a sprinkle of toasted sesame seeds or a sprig of fresh cilantro for an elegant touch.
