Beef and Broccoli
I know, I know — it says “broccoli” so why are there those orange thingies there? Well, I happened to have some carrots in the fridge and thought I would add them! If I had mushrooms I would have added them too 🙂
Anyway, this recipe is something that I keep in my file and you might want to as well, to help vary your family menu.
500 grams beef, thinly sliced
10 teaspoons soy sauce, divided into 6 teaspoons and 4 teaspoons
1 1/3 cups water
broccoli florets (and stems if you want), plus other vegies you want to add 🙂
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, chopped or sliced
2 tablespoons cornstarch dissolved in 6 tablespoons water
First of, marinate your beef in your 6 teaspoons of soy sauce for at least 15 minutes.
Heat a pan and stir fry the beef for 1 minute. Remove the beef and set aside. Add water to the pan and bring to a boil. Add your broccoli, sugar and ginger and cook over HIGH heat for 3 minutes.
Return beef to the pan. Stir in the cornstarch mixture (make sure you have dissolved the cornstarch!) to thicken. Add the remaining 4 teaspoons soy sauce.
FINISHED! Serve with steamed rice for a simple dinner.
This recipe would probably serve 4 people.
