I love Chinese food but it doesn’t really love me. Okay, sorry TMI… The good news is I found a super healthy and easy beef with broccoli recipe. I just made it the other night and even my “picky” 16 year old son said it was better than any restaurant! It’s a simple dinner that is packed full of flavor. I think I’ve solved your “what’s for dinner?” dilema for today. Find the recipe here.
–Use brown rice to make it extra friendly on your waistline.
–I used a little more soy sauce then the recipe called for.
–Don’t over cook the broccoli for better texture and flavor.
–Double the recipe and have left overs for lunches or dinner the next night. (that’s what I did)
–I don’t love ginger so next time I will cut the amount in half. However I know it’s needed to add the necessary flavor profiles. If you like it, don’t change a thing!
–Use chopsticks to make dinner seem a little extra special/authentic.
–If you want to make this for company, a party or even a picnic, buy cool Chinese boxes and serve the beef with broccoli in them individually. Attach chopsticks and a cookie on top of the box with raffia/twine. You can find a large variety of patterned and different sizes of Chinese boxes at craft stores such as Michaels and party supply stores like Party City.
