This classic Chinese recipe can be made in less time than it takes to order takeaway. Stir-frying is all about layering flavour. Cooking the broccoli in the pan after browning the beef coats it with the flavourful caramelised bits from the pan bottom as it steams. Adding aromatics like ginger, garlic and red chilli flakes to the pan just before tossing all the ingredients together allows the flavours to really bloom and come together. Serve this stir-fry over rice or rice noodles.
