Beef and Broccoli Recipe


Servings: 4 people 1 lb flank steak, very thinly sliced into bite-sized strips 2 Tbsp olive oil , (or vegetable oil), divided 1 lb broccoli, (cut into 6 cups of florets) 2 tsp sesame seeds, optional garnish Stir Fry Sauce Ingredients: 1 tsp fresh ginger, grated (loosely packed) 2 tsp garlic, grated (from 3 cloves) 1/2 cup hot water 6 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce, (or GF Tamari) 3 Tbsp packed light brown sugar 1 1/2 Tbsp corn starch 1/4 tsp black pepper 2 Tbsp sesame oil

Instructions step-1

Start cooking white rice first so it's ready when the stir fry is done. Cover and freeze steak 30 minutes for easier slicing.

step - 2

Combine all stir fry sauce ingredients in a bowl, stir well to dissolve the sugar, and set aside.

step - 3 

Place a large skillet over medium heat and add 1 Tbsp oil.  Add broccoli florets and sauté 4-5 minutes, partially covered with lid, stirring or tossing several times until broccoli is bright green and crisp-tender then remove from pan.

step - 4

Increase heat to high heat and add 1 Tbsp oil. Add beef in a single layer and sauté 2 minutes per side or just until cooked through. Quickly pull out a piece to test for doneness.

step - 5

Add the sauce, reduce heat to medium/low and simmer 3-4 minutes. It will thicken. Add broccoli and stir to combine. Stir in 1-2 Tbsp water to thin the sauce if desired. Serve over white rice.
