Beef and Broccoli

Servings: 4

Prep time: 10

Cook time: 15



1 or 2, 3 oz filets (I gave up using anything else, because of tenderness), sliced thin

1 head of broccoli, stems removed and chopped into bite size pieces

1 onion, sliced medium

1 oz of some red peppers for color (optional)

1/2 cup basmati rice ( This time I used half white/half brown rice)

2 tbsp olive oil, 1 reserved


Sauce Ingredients:


1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce

1/2 cup water

3 tbsp

1 tbsp rice vinegar

2 tsp fresh ginger grated

4 cloves garlic minced

1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes or more, to taste

1 tbsp toasted sesame oil see note

3 tablespoons cornstarch


 Sauce Instructions:


Mix all of the ingredients together in a small bowl and set aside.  You will need to stir again before adding to the stir fry, as the cornstarch will settle and the oil will separate.


Main Instructions:


In a small dish, add a splash of water and the broccoli, cover and microwave for 3 minutes. 

Add 1 tbsp sesame oil to the pan/wok,  heat over high heat,, add the steak, it should be sizzling crazy like, and stir at least every 30 seconds to 1 minute until you see the beef cooking through and getting a bit crusty on the edges.

Add the onion, and cook for 3 more minutes, then add the broccoli, all while continually stirring to make sure everything is getting even heat.

When the onions and broccoli are to your designed done-ness,  stir the sauce mixture and add to the pan.  It should take about 1-2 minutes to fully thicken.   Stir, turn the heat off, allowing the mixture to sit for a moment while you gather everything you need to serve, then enjoy over some cooked rice.
 Garnish with sliced green onions if you like.

Notes:  I think I finally have the sauce thing down - just enough, but not too much.  We did give up on tough steaks, we don't eat beef often so when we do, we want great quality.
