Pinterest Mission #5

Another success! Give me a high five! (thank you 🙂 )

This should have been last night’s meal however it’s impossible to cook frozen meat. LOL. (yeah I forgot to thaw the meat) Anywho, tonight I tried at home beef with broccoli from Rainy Day Gal.

Yummy, tasty, delectable, divine, etc. are all very accurate words to describe this dish. I would even venture out to say the taste is comparable to take out beef and broccoli.

Here’s my rendition of Beef with Broccoli…

What You Will Need:
Thin Cut of Beef (rib eye, flank, sirloin)
Broccoli (fresh or frozen)
Jazmine Rice

1 tbsp soy Sauce (low sodium or regular)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp brown sugar
1 tbsp cornstarch
1 tbsp water
2 tbsp vegetable oil

1/2 cup soy sauce (low sodium or regular)
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp flour
3 tbsp vegetable oil

1. Mix all ingredients listed under marinade above in a bowl.

2. Slice cut of beef against the grain into thin strips.

3. Add beef to marinade.

4. Put in refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

5. Prepare rice. I added a pinch of salt. I hate bland rice (yucky lol)

After the hour has passed and your are ready to prepare dinner

1. Mix all ingredients listed under sauce.

***If you choose to use regular soy sauce (because that’s all you have in your cabinet like me lol) add an additional 1/2 cup to 1 cup of water to dilute the salt. (I tested as I added)***

2. Warm 1 – 1 1/2 tbsp of olive oil (cooking oil) in a frying pan.

3. Add thawed broccoli tops only into oil. Stir constantly. Broccoli could burn if attention is not paid while cooking.

4. When broccoli is finished remove from pan.

5. After removing broccoli add 1 tbsp olive oil (cooking oil) to pan.

6. Add beef and half of sauce to pan.

7. Allow to cook for 3-4 minutes.

8. Stir in broccoli.

9. Allow to cook for 5-7 minutes until beef is done.

10. Put desired amount of rice in the bottom of a bowl. Add broccoli and beef on top.

11. Enjoy!
