Beef and Broccoli

What what what?  Beef AND broccoli in one sitting...while I'm pregnant?!  Yes!  It's because it's that good!  This is a favorite of my parents-in-law's.  I give them full credit for this dish...it's one of their specialties!  The good news is, it's pretty simple too!

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup lean beef, like sirloin
  • 1 Tbsp corn starch
  • 1 Tbsp light soy
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil or light olive oil
  • 1 finely chopped clove of garlic {we use more!}
  • 2 cups of brocoli
  • 2 oz mushrooms
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup beef stock
Thinly slice the sirloin and combine with corn starch and soy sauce.  Let marinate at room temp for half hour.  Meanwhile, in a wok, heat up the oil on high.  Toss in garlic to simmer.  Add in the beef and keep the leftover marinade to the side.  Brown the beef and remove from pan.  Add in broccoli, mushrooms, beef stock and leftover marinade and stir fry for about 3 minutes until warm...stir often.  Once warmed through, add the beef back in and you're ready to serve!  If you want a little more sauce, you can add extra beef stock and corn starch to thicken it up.

Serve over white rice and voila!  Super yummy dish for any night of the week!  And this is definitely the best way to enjoy broccoli {coming from the girl who has major veggie aversions right now!}.  It's got a great Asian flair...and is great for a winter night in.  


Hope you enjoy!  Bon Appetit!
