Beef With Broccoli Servings: 4
You'll need
  • 2/3 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 1/2 Ibs skirt steak, cut into 1-inch thin slices
  • 1 tsp canola oil
  • 2 1/2 cups broccoli florets
1. Whisk soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, and red pepper flakes in a bowl. Place steak in a shallow dish. Pour half the marinade over steak. Marinate for 20 minutes. Save leftover marinade.
2. Heat the canola oil in a large nonstick skillet or wok over high heat. Remove beef from marinade and cook 5 minutes.
3. Add broccoli and remaining marinade and stir-fry up to 5 minutes, or until broccoli is crisp-tender. Serve beef mixture over rice, if desired.
