Beef & Broccoli Stir Fry is a classic, easy, delicious dish. Everybody needs to have at least one variation in their recipe binder. There's nothing like those thin strips of tender sirloin that practically melt in your mouth, crisp tender broccoli, sweet onions and a slightly sweet ginger infused sauce. This is certainly better than take-out and much healthier!
With minimal prep work using fresh ingredients, this dish cooks in a matter of minutes.
I got a wok for Christmas! Yeah! I really love it. It's easy to use and easy to clean - bonus!
It takes about 5 minutes to cook the beef, 5 minutes to cook the vegetables and another 2 minutes to boil the sauce. Cooking the rice takes longer than cooking the rest of the meal!

Well happy Wednesday my friends! It was 75 degrees here yesterday, we had an ice storm and snow last week and thunderstorms are in the forecast for today. What strange weather! But if it stays nice over the weekend we might have to warm up the grill and marinate some steaks. And I guess I'll watch some of the Super Bowl so I'm not the only person in the whole world that can't discuss the best beer commercials. Ha ha. Thanks so much for stopping by!
