Beef Broccoli is one of the easiest dishes to make! Just start a pot of rice and dinner is ready in under 20 minutes.
BEEF BROCCOLI (6 to 8 people)
2lbs. fresh broccoli florettes/or frozen
1/2 soyu sauce
1 1/2 TBL.garlic
1cup brown sugar
1 TBL. spoon ginger
1 cup water
Remove meat from pack and rinse. Place meat in hot pan and begin to brown. Add garlic when meat is nearly done. Just barely pink. Season with salt and pepper or lawry's salt. Remove from pan and place broccoli florettes into pan with 2tbl. water and place lid on pan for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove lid and add beef and garlic and soyu sauce, ginger and brown sugar with 1 cup water. Toss and season until flavors are absorbed. Add a little more water or soyu sauce to make a good broth and add more brown sugar or seasonings as needed. Turn heat up from medium to medium high. Remove when broccoli is still a la dente.
These measurements are all guessamations! I do a lot of my cooking by taste. If the sauce needs more tang I add a bit more soyu or if it isn't sweet enough I add brown sugar. If I need a bit of a different taste I sprinkle in a little more ginger or garlic. If the soyu is too strong then I weaken it with a half a cup of water or a bit less. Don't be afraid to try things out and change things up to the liking of your own family.
I did use a seasoning packet because I wanted to see if it was easier to use a pre made ready packet. YOU know what? It's not. I can do the same exact thing with the seasonings I have at home. But, If you like packet is very much the same. I just added more seasonings to our likening. Serve over steamed rice.
