Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry

stir fry

Of all the Americanized Chinese stir fries, beef and broccoli has to be one of the most popular. It’s so simple, and so good. This recipe is an adaptation of my mom’s very Americanized version of the classic stir fry. Her secret ingredient to an irresistible beef and broccoli stir fry is cheddar cheese. Not a lot, just a little to slightly thicken the sauce and give an irresistible flavor. The amount of cheese in this dish is very small, and if you didn’t know it was in there, you’d probably never be able to actually identify the taste. The cheese, as it pairs with the soy sauce and oyster sauce gives a very unique and almost addictive flavor that will leave your friends and family begging you for the recipe.
