Beef and Broccoli with Oyster Sauce

A concentrated dark brown sauce with a slightly sweet, smoky flavor, oyster sauce is made from dried oysters, salt and water, with cornstarch and caramel added for consistency and color. The sauce originated in southern China, where cooks use it as a seasoning, drizzling it over simply cooked vegetables or mixing it into a meat and vegetable stir-fry. Oyster sauce also can be served as a dipping sauce for roasted meats. Avoid the least expensive products, as they lack a rich oyster flavor. Once opened, oyster sauce should be stored in the refrigerator.

I will serve this to guests coming next month
October 13, 2013
I test drove this recipe this week because we expect guests next month. To meet my requirements the recipe must be delicious, of course, but it must be quick to prepare and to clean up after. It must also be pleasant and safe to eat because no guest wants to spend the evening wearing a shirt where the food dripped. There are a lot of ingredients but all of this can be prepared before and the assembled as when the cooking starts. Also the cost is reasonable. I couldn't find some of the ingredients the recipe called for but substitutions, like dry white wine instead of rice wine, worked just fine. I will be adding mushrooms to this recipe in the future.
Pros: Quick, Good Value, Easy, Healthy, Appearance, Adaptable, Impressive, Will Make Again

Easy weeknight dinner
July 16, 2012
This is a very quick dinner you can prepare. I didn't have peanut oil so I used canola oil instead. (I didn't use any oil in the sauce)
I served with rice and it was delicious!
Pros: Quick, Easy, Will Make Again
