Easy & Tasty Beef & Broccoli Stir Fry

When you’re in a rush, nothing hits the spot like Chinese food. Those little take-out boxes full of chow mein, fried rice and beef and broccoli are mighty tasty – but did you know that most Chinese food is loaded with saturated fat, calories and salt?

Fear not: making satisfying, healthy Chinese food at home is easier than using a fork instead of chopsticks (does anyone really know how to hold their chopsticks?). Check out our easy Beef & Broccoli Stir Fry next time you need a Chinese food fix.
