This pot is versatile, and suitable for both stove-top stir-frying and oven-finishing, making it a great choice for this and similar recipes.

Marinate the Beef: Combine soy sauce, sesame oil, and red pepper flakes in a bowl. Add thinly sliced beef, ensuring it's well coated. Marinate for at least 30 minutes.


Prepare the Broccoli: In the Dutch oven, heat some olive oil over medium heat. Add broccoli florets and stir-fry until they are crisp-tender, about 3-5 minutes. Remove and set aside.


Cook the Beef: In the same pot, add a bit more oil if needed, then add the marinated beef. Stir-fry the beef until it's cooked through and browned, approximately 5-7 minutes.


Combine Ingredients: Return the broccoli to the pot with the beef. Add beef broth and bring to a simmer, allowing the flavors to meld for a few minutes.


Final Touches: Adjust seasoning if necessary. Garnish with sesame seeds before serving, if desired.
