Beef Broccoli

Pin It I love Chinese food.  I love how quick it is to cook and how amazing the leftovers are for lunch the next day.  I like to try to make it healthier by using reduced sodium soy sauce and loading up on lots of veggies.  This entire meal was finished in less than 30 minutes.  This would be great for a busy weeknight, but your family will be super impressed.

Beef Broccoli
Adapted from Six Sister's Stuff
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
½ teaspoon fresh ginger, minced (or 1/2 tsp ground ginger)
1 tablespoon garlic, chopped
½ cup low sodium soy sauce
½ cup water
¾ cup dark brown sugar
1 tbsp cornstarch

1 lb thinly sliced sirloin or flank steak, sliced into strips
2 cups cooked broccoli, fresh or frozen
cooked rice for serving
green onions, chopped

1. In a large skillet heat oil.  Add garlic and ginger and saute for about 1 minute (watch closely).
2. Add soy sauce and water.  Dissolve brown sugar in the sauce and bring to a boil.  Boil for 2-3 minutes.
3. Dissolve corn starch in 2 Tbsp water and pour into the sauce for the final 30 seconds.  This will help thicken the sauce.  Remove sauce from heat.
4. Cook steak strips in a skillet until cooked through.
5. Add steak and cooked broccoli to the sauce skillet.  Return to low heat until ready to serve.
6. Serve over rice with green onions for garnish.
