Marinate half kilo tenderloin beef (cut in thin round-shape)with these: 1/3 cup oyster sauce, 1teaspoon sugar, 2 teaspoon hoisin sauce, teaspoon of soy sauce, a teaspoon of cornstarch and peanut oil. Marinate for at least 30m minutes.

Prepare your wok. Saute ginger and garlic in a vegetable oil. Let it sizzle in the oil for a minute to flavor the oil, then remove and discard.Toss the brocolli in the hot oil for 5 to 7 minutes, then set aside. Add more oil to your wok then add the marinated beef. Stir for 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and brocolli and stir with the beef for 3 minutes. Enjoy your stir-fry beef brocolli!
