Back on program…

Now that competition prep week and competition day are over, things are back to normal in regards to our menu plan.  Of course, since DH ate a lot of steak and fish last week, we won’t be having much of that in the upcoming month.  Our Sunday evening was extremely busy so I didn’t get a chance to make anything for today’s lunch.

That being said, tomorrow’s lunch is beef n broccoli.


Beef n Broccoli Recipe:

1 pound thinly sliced beefI usually use a sirloin steak which I put in the freezer for a few hours to help with thinly slicing the meat

Mix the thinly sliced beef with the following:

2 tablespoons water

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Once the meat is coated in the cornstarch/water mixture, pan fry the meat in 2 tablespoons of olive oil.

Fry until browned and toss in 2 medium onions (I add extra onions) and 4 pounds of broccoli florets.

Pour in the sauce mixture:

1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce

1/2 cup water

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 teaspoon ginger powder


Mix so that the beef, broccoli and onions are all coated.

Turn off the heat and place the lid on the pan to allow the broccoli to cook without overdoing it.

    Hi Ate! I just wanted to say that I tried your recipe for Beef Broccoli (as it was just slightly different from mine) and it was yummy. 🙂 Both Chryston and Gerald liked the difference in flavour. I never added brown sugar or the ginger and garlic powders. I try to use fresh when I can, but adding the spices made it that much more flavourful I think.

    Anyway, I’m still “working on it,” so I hope you don’t feel like you’re alone on this one. It’s a challenge for me to get a decent work out in anytime, let alone on a regular basis…and it doesn’t help that I’m baking sweet snacks for the house either (oatmeal chocolate chip, carrot muffins….sigh…).

    Thanks for the recipe!
