Easy & Tasty Beef & Broccoli Stir Fry

Reading Time: ( Word Count: )

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.

Ingredients:

  • Beef
  • Broccoli
  • Brown rice
  • Soy sauce
  • Beef broth (optional)
  • Brown sugar
  • Ginger
  • Salt
  • Cornstarch
  • Garlic powder

Instructions:

  1. First, throw on some brown rice.
  2. To make your stir fry sauce, add ⅓ cup soy sauce, 2 tbsp water or beef broth, 2 tbsp of brown sugar, ½ tbsp of ground ginger and a pinch of salt. Put aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine 2 tablespoons cornstarch, 2 tablespoons water and 1 teaspoon of garlic powder until smooth.
  4. Add small chunks of steak to the bowl and toss together.
  5. In a large skillet or wok over medium high heat, cook beef in 1 tablespoon of oil until browned; remove the beef from the skillet.
  6. Next, cook chopped broccoli and onion in the remaining oil for 4-5 minutes.
  7. Throw your beef back in the skillet.
  8. Add your pre-made stir fry sauce to the pan.
  9. Cook and stir for 2 minutes.
  10. Serve over rice.
