I found this recipe on my friend Alex’s blog. She blogs over at Zoe Bean Creations and always has fun and interesting recipes on there.
Part of my plans for diversity in the kitchen meant aiming for healthier Asian cooking when we pay a culinary visit to the Far East, and this particular treat fit the bill.
Alex originally made this recipe with Snow Peas but James does not like them so I subbed in broccoli. I also made a marinade to go with it.
- 1 lb beef steak, cut into 1 inch stripes
- 2 cups broccoli
- 1 cup brown rice
- 4 cups chicken stock or water
- 3 TBSP soy sauce 0r coconut aminos (if gluten free)
- 2 TBSP brown sugar
- 4 TBSP rice vinegar
- 2 tsp cornstarch
- 1 TBSP oil
- 1 TBSP fresh garlic, minced
- 1 TBSP fresh ginger, minced
- 3 TBSP soy sauce
- 2 TBSP brown sugar
- 1 TBSP sesame oil
- Combine marinade ingredients in a shallow baking dish
- Slice steak into 1 inch stripes and add to baking dish
- Place marinating steak in the refrigerator, allow to marinade 1-2 hours
- In a medium pot bring the chicken stock or water to a boil
- Add rice
- Steam broccoli while rice is cooking
- Combine soy sauce, rice vinegar, brown sugar, and cornstarch in a small bowl
- Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat
- Add garlic and ginger, stir fry for about 30 seconds
- Add beef to skillet and stir fry until evenly browned
- Add cooked broccoli to beef mixture and stir fry 2-3 minutes
- Add soy sauce mixture to skillet and bring to a boil, stirring constantly
- Lower heat to low-medium and simmer until thick, about 1-2 minutes
- Drain rice in a strainer
- Serve 3/4 cup of rice with 3/4 cup of the beef and broccoli mixture.
Make sure you have some of the sauce in there too. 😉
The only reason the cook time is so long is because of the rice. If you use a quick cooking rice you could have dinner done in 10 minutes! Yay!
This recipe is absolutely delicious! We all loved it! James has requested that we put it in the regular rotation. So I guess that makes it a winner!
