instructions
Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:

Fill a medium pot with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the broccoli. Cut off and discard the bottom 1/2 inch of the broccoli stem, then cut into small florets. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. In a bowl, combine the cumin-sichuan sauce, soy glaze, demi-glace, and 2 tablespoons of water.

Cook the broccoli:
2 Cook the broccoli:

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1/3 cup of water to boiling on high. Once boiling, carefully add the broccoli florets in an even layer. Season with salt and pepper. Reduce the heat to medium-high. Loosely cover the pan with foil and cook, without stirring, 4 to 6 minutes, or until the water has cooked off and the broccoli is lightly browned. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan.

Cook the beef & sauce:
3 Cook the beef & sauce:

In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the beef, chopped garlic, and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently and breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 5 to 7 minutes, or until the beef is browned and cooked through. Add the sauce and cooked broccoli. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until combined. Turn off the heat.

Cook the noodles & serve your dish:
4 Cook the noodles & serve your dish:

While the beef cooks, add the noodles to the pot of boiling water, stirring gently to separate. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and rinse under warm water 30 seconds to 1 minute to prevent sticking. Return to the pot and stir in the sesame oil. Cover to keep warm. Serve the cooked beef, broccoli, and sauce over the cooked noodles. Garnish with the sesame seeds. Enjoy!
