There is no fire like passion, No crime like hatred, No sorrow like separation, No sickness like hunger, And no joy like the joy of freedom. Buddha Dhammapada.

The fragrance of sandalwood and rosebay, Does not travel far. But the fragrance of virtue, Rises to the heavens. Buddha Dhammapada.

Stir-Fried Broccoli With Beef (Chhar Phkar Khat Na Khiev Sach Ko)

Today I went to a grocery store for some tomatoes to cook Hungarian Lecso/Lachow (a very popular Hungarian food and delicious, I love it), but suddenly I saw some fresh broccoli which changed my mind not to cook the Hungarian food for lunch but Khmer food, stir-fried broccoli with beef. So here again simple, fast and good taste! Let’s try this recipe and let me know how you like it..

Recipe for Two Persons:
Ingredients: 250g of Beef, 500g of Broccoli, 4cloves of Garlic, 3sp of Oil, 2sp of Soy Sauce, 1/2tsp of Salt, and1tsp of Sugar.

1. Slice beef into small piece and thin. Peel out the skin of Broccoli and cut into small piece as size of your thumb. Peel out garlic and chop it into very small piece.

2. Heat up frying pan, pure oil in. Then put chopped garlic to fry it till get nice smell. After that put sliced beef and fry 30 seconds, then start to put soy sauce, salt and sugar in (if you like spicy, you can add chopped hot chili or 1/3tsp ground pepper in as most of recipes are not spicy). Stir them well then cover for 5minutes.

3. After 5minutes, open the cover to stir them well again and add 50ml of water if it’s so dry then cover for other 3minutes. Then it’s ready to serve with steamed rice or as the way you like.
