  • “Absolutely wonderful!!I used Golden Lantern garlic flavoured Wok oil to stir fry this.I also added some cauliflower – WOW!!This is great – the meat is tender and the veggies come out crisp!I wasn’t sure when to add the soya sauce – so I added it at the end with the final toss.As well, I found that I only needed 2 Tbsp of oil for the entire process.This is a keeper – I will make this again!!”

  • “FANTASTIC and so so simple! I had no sherry so i just used a bit of soy sauce and sprinkled a bit of seasoned garlic salt along with the cornstarch on the meat. It came out great. It was a smash hit. we won’t need to be ordering takeout next time we get a craving for a good chinese dish. Thanks so much for posting.”

  • “I’ve made beef and broccoli before but the beef always turns out chewy and the broccoli over cooked. Follow this recipe and you shall have success. It is delicious.”

  • “This recipe was so good it even got a good rating from my mother who sat in the kitchen while I was cooking and swore that the meat would end up tough.She was wrong, the meat was perfect as was the brocolli.I doubled the garlic.This is such a keeper.Thank you for the great directions too.”

  • “This is a really good beef and broccoli recipe.I added a little more garlic (only because of preference) but everything came out perfect.The beef was so flavorful and tender.Thanks for a wonderful addition to my recipe book.”

  • “This was delicious, wasnt sure when to add the soy sauce so I just put it in with the sliced meat to marinade.I also added a tsp of gingeroot.Thanks for posting.=)”

  • “My whole family loved this.Very, very good.”

  • “Very good but a little bland for my taste.Next time I will add black bean sauce to zest it up.”

  • “Yum!!!!! This was quite easy, the chopping of vegetables and slicing meat took the most time. Partially freezing the meat did make the slicing quite easy. I added a dash more sherry and soy sauce, the sauce was very tasty and meat tender!!”

  • “I found this a bit bland.I added some ginger and rice wine to spruce it up a bit, but it still wasn’t the greatest.”

  • “Broccoli came out nice and tender, but I found this to be a bit bland- I’m not sure what to do to zest it up, but if I made this again I would add a bit of ginger.”

  • “We loved this recipe-great Oriental flavor.I did double the garlic and would add more next time (I use the minced garlic-not fresh) I also used red bell pepper instead of mushrooms.My only suggestion would be to try to cut down on the oil a little bit.I would also steam the broccoli a shorter time as mine was pretty mushy and I like things a bit crisper.”

  • “This wasn’t too bad.I made it as written, and it was nice and easy to make.My husband really liked it, but I thought it was a bit dry (as in it didn’t make much juice/sauce)and the flavor wasn’t what I was expecting.Because the rest of my family enjoyed it, I might make it again.”

  • “This was good, I did add some ginger to it to give it a bit more something, and also, for all of you who didn’t know what to do with the soya sauce, read step two again! lol!”

  • “DH and I really enjoyed this recipe, even though I didn’t add everything (I didn’t have it all!). I had to leave out the mushrooms and onions, but still! I have added this to my keeper list. Oh… I took one star off because I almost forgot to add the soy sauce since it isn’t listed specifically in the directions. Either way, good stuff! “

  • “This tasted wonderful! I did add a regular onion in place of the green onion and also added a bell pepper to it. I also only used 2 tablespoons of oil, and added a pinch of ginger to it. I will make this one again. Thanks Bergy….”

  • “Bergy, this is just fantastic. It really packs a lot of flavor. I didn’t see any need to change this recipe. It was easy to make and done quickly. This is one I will make over and over. Thanks for sharing!!”

  • “When my husband says “Don’t throw this recipe away”, you know it’s a big hit! The beef was fork tender, the sauce was right on. I may add more garlic next time because my garlic cloves were small. I used low sodium soy sauce but that was the only change I made. So much better than the local take away place! Thank you.”

  • “Followed this almost exact. Minus the mushrooms & sherry. It was sooo good. The meat was really tender & broccoli was cooked perfect. Love this recipe. Thank you!”

  • “I give it 5 stars, dh would give it 1 (not a big meat eater and he said the meat was tough, yeah it was a little chewy).DS liked it, and DD thought it would have been better without mushrooms lol.Baby was too busy eating fried rice to eat this.I didn’t add salt.I thought soy sauce would be salty enough and it was fine for our tastes.Oh, I also used ginger garlic paste instead of chopped garlic.Oh, and frozen broccoli :)”
