Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry


 
The best thing about this stir fry is that the flavors are such a good base to add more vegetables or even substitute chicken or shrimp if you are not a beef lover. I think adding baby corn, water chestnuts or red and green pepper would also be a great addition. This is a great week night meal to have on the dinner table in just under 30 minutes. Defnitely don't forget to add the fresh ginger as it gives the meal such wonderful flavor!

 
You Will Need:
  • 3 Tbsp cornstarch, divided
  • 1/2 cup water, plus 2 Tbsp water
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1lb boneless round steak or 1lb charcoal steaks, cute into desired thickness
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil ( I used olive oil)
  • 4 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 small onion, cut into thick strips
  • 1/3 soy sauce ( I used low sodium)
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar (I used light brown sugar)
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • Cooked Rice (I used brown rice)

 
Here We Go:
  • In a medium bowl, combine 2 Tbsp cornstarch, 2 Tbsp water and garlic powder until smooth
  • Add beef and toss
  • In a large skillet or wok over medium high heat, stir-fry beef in 1 Tbsp oil until beef reaches desired doneness; remove and keep warm
  • Stir-fry broccoli and onion in remaining oil for 4-5 minutes
  • Return beef to pan.
  • Combine soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger and remaining cornstarch and water until smooth; add to the pan
  • Cook and stir for 2 minutes
  • Serve over rice

 
Serves 4
Happy Feasting!
