Beef and Broccoli Quickfire

Beef and Broccoli is a staple in Tsinoy (Chinese-Filipino) cuisine. I don't know how that came to be, but it's always seen on the menu.

It must be the oyster sauce - which I believe has Oriental origin.

When cooking beef and broccoli, you have to choose thinly sliced beef and fresh broccoli -- TIP: make sure the little leafy-tree-like structures are green and closed (NOT yellowing and open).

Here is the recipe:
