The last post was for a delicious, but time consuming recipe, so I had to follow it up with something that you could easily make on a busy weeknight. This beef and broccoli dish is quick, easy, and full of flavour. It came together in less than 20 minutes. (We even cheated and used a quick cooking brown rice.) You will have dinner on the table in no time!
Beef and Broccoli
Adapted from Home Made Simple
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 onion, sliced thinly
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1 (455 grams) flank steak, trimmed and cut across the grain into long, thin strips
1/4 cup chicken stock
1/3 cup soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 medium head of broccoli, rinsed, patted dry and cut into bite-sized pieces
In a large skillet over medium heat, cook onion and minced garlic in sesame oil for 2 to 3 minutes, until fragrant. Add steak and cook for 5 minutes, flipping frequently.
Add chicken stock, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, ginger and cornstarch. Once the sauce begins to simmer, toss in broccoli. Cook for 3-5 more minutes, stirring frequently, until steak and vegetables are tender.
Serve with brown rice.
