  • 2 tbsp olive oil divided
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar or white vinegar
  • 3/4 cup jasmine rice
  • 3 cloves garlic divided
  • 1/2 lb broccoli
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 cups water divided


Cook the Rice

  • In a small pot, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil (reserve remaining olive oil) on medium-high. Add garlic, season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  • Add rice, a big pinch of salt and 1 1/2 cups of water. Heat to boiling on high.
  • Cover, reduce heat to low. Cook 12 to 14 minutes, or until tender and water is absorbed.
  • Remove from heat; fluff with a fork.

Cook the Broccoli

  • Heat the sesame oil on medium-high. Add broccoli, season with salt and pepper.
  • Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly softened.
  • Add garlic, cook, stirring occasionally, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add water and cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 5 minutes, until water is cooked off and broccoli is bright green.
  • Transfer to a bowl and wipe out the pan.

Cook the Beef

  • Season the beef with salt and pepper. Add cornstarch, toss to thoroughly coat.
  • Heat remaining olive oil on high. Add half of coated beef in a single layer. Cook, without stirring, 1 to 2 minutes, until browned on first side. Turn and continue to cook, stirring constantly 1 minute, until just cooked through.
  • Leave brown bits in pan and transfer to a plate. Repeat with remaining coated beef, leaving it in pan.

Finish and Serve

  • Return first batch of beef to pan. Add hoisin sauce and vinegar. Reduce heat to medium-high and cook, stirring frequently 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until coated.
