Beef & Broccoli

The rice looks like boobs. I didn’t do it on purpose. Maybe subconsciously. Moving on. I made beef and broccoli!

It’s really tasty and the broccoli is some of the tastiest little teeny tiny trees I ever made. Btw, don’t broccoli look like tiny trees from a tiny universe with like the cutest tiniest things? You never thought of that? Weird. 

Here’s what you’ll need:

The beef: I used some already cut for stir fry but thin steaks like flank or skirt work well. Slice across the grain.

The broccoli: I used fresh but frozen is fine too.

I don’t know what’s up with the weird format I just did. This whole post is weird. It all started with the rice titties. Anyway. First thing to do is slice your meat if you need to. Then heat your pan on medium/high and make the sauce in the meantime. 

For the sauce I used ginger, garlic, soy sauce, sesame oil, cornstarch and onion & garlic powder (which are both optional). And some green onions because why not.

Mix the sauce and set aside.

Your pan should be hot right now. Add the meat in one layer and do NOT stir for the first minute or so.

Then add the sauce and broccoli. Stir and coat everything with the sauce. Cook on high heat till meat is cooked through then cover to allow everything to steam a little and then you’re done!

I was making some white rice to go along with this dish and I had some extra green onions and decided the throw them into the water with the rice. Something compelled me to do it. I think it was divine intervention. I’m glad I did it. It gave the rice a nice fragrant touch that make me feel like its gourmet or something.
