Beef and Broccoli

Karen Morreale, Little Life Bytes, S2R Studios, Beef and Broccoli

Food with an Asian flair really excites me! This dish is no exception. It follows my need for easy meals and is super yummy too!

You’ll Need:

1 lb. of boneless round steak (or chuck) sliced into thin strips
3 Tbsp. olive oil (or canola)
3 cups of broccoli florets
1 medium onion, sliced thin
2 cloves of garlic (minced)
3 Tbsp. cornstarch
1/4 cup water then another Tbsp.  separate
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
1″ piece of ginger (grated)
1 Tbsp. Sriracha (optional)
2 cups cooked rice

How to Make It:

In a bowl combine 2 Tbsp. cornstarch, garlic and 1 Tbsp. water, add beef and toss until coated.
Next, in a large skillet on medium high with 2 Tbsp. oil, start frying the beef.
Don’t crowd the pan or you’ll end up with gray meat. You want this beef seared nicely.
Cook until seared on both sides, then transfer to a plate.
Decrease heat to medium, in goes 1 Tbsp. oil, the broccoli, onions and ginger.
Saute for 4-5 minutes or until veggies are fork tender (but not mushy).
Return the beef to your pan.
In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, brown sugar, Sriracha and 1/4 cup water and 1 Tbsp. cornstarch until thoroughly combined and smooth.
Add it to your pan.
Turn up the heat to medium high and cook until the sauce is all incorporated and has thickened…about 3-4 minutes.
Serve over rice.

The wonderful thing about this recipe is you can add some other things to it as you like: water chestnuts, bok choy, bamboo sprouts…whatever you like.

You’ll be so impressed with how easy and delicious this dish is! Go ahead try it, you know you want to : )
