Broccoli Beef Stir Fry Over Rice

I love Asian food, especially chicken or beef with broccoli. I normally do chicken but thought I would try my hand at beef. I adapted the recipe and added more broccoli so there would be more fiber in the meal.

Broccoli Beef Stir Fry
Serves 4
1/2 lb. – 1 lb. Steak sliced thinly (depending how meaty you want it)
2 Tbs. Soy Sauce
2 Garlic Cloves Minced
1 Tbs. Ginger Minced

3 Tbs. Hoisin Sauce
3 Tbs. Water
1/2 Tbs. Cornstarch
1/4 Tsp. Crushed Red Pepper Flakes

2-1/2 Cups Broccoli
1 large Carrot
2-3 Tbs. Water

Slice steak thinly across the grain and place in small bowl. Add soy sauce, garlic and ginger. Mix together and let marinate for 30 minutes.

While marinating prepare sauce. In separate bowl whisk together hoisin, water, cornstarch and red pepper flakes. Set aside.

Chop broccoli into small florets. Peel carrot and chop into thin slices.

Using wok or large skillet add 1 Tbs. Oil and heat pan on high. Add meat mixture and let cook without stirring for 1 minute. Then stir and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes until browned around the edges.

Place in clean bowl and set aside. Add another 1 Tbs. Oil to pan and add vegetables. Stir for about 2 minutes. Add 2 Tbs. Water and cover for 2-4 minutes until soft but still crisp. If still not cooked through enough stir, add 1 more Tbs. of water and cover for another minute.

Add meat and sauce to pan and combine. Serve over warm rice and enjoy! Recipe has 7.7 grams sugar and 3 grams of fiber per serving.
