  • 200 g purple sprouting broccoli
  • sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 x 300 g quality sirloin steaks
  • 2 teaspoons coriander seeds
  • olive oil
  • 1 red onion , peeled and finely sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic peeled and finely sliced
  • 1 thumb-sized piece fresh ginger , peeled and finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil

  1. Juicy steak, crunchy greens and sticky soy sauce – this beef and broccoli stir-fry recipe is a joy

    Place the broccoli spears into a heatproof bowl and cover them with boiling water. Add a good pinch of salt and leave for 10 minutes. Drain and put to one side.
  2. Slice the steaks into finger-sized strips and season with salt and pepper. Pound the coriander seeds in a pestle and mortar, then sprinkle over the meat so they stick to it and give it a lovely, fragrant flavour.
  3. Heat a wok or large frying pan until very hot. Pour in a splash of olive oil and add the onions, garlic and ginger. Fry for a couple of minutes until the onions have softened a little. Drop in the seasoned pieces of beef and stir-fry for a couple of minutes. Add the broccoli spears and fry for a further 2 minutes, stirring all the time.
  4. Pour in the soy sauce and sesame oil. Toss in the pan until everything is well coated. Serve with egg noodles or steamed rice with a wedge of lime and some sliced red chilli sprinkled over the top.
  5. Tip: If you are feeling flash, use fillet steak instead of sirloin in your stir-fry.
