Week Night Dinner - Easy Beef & Broccoli

QUICK & EASY WEEK NIGHT DINNER - Beef & Broccoli

During the week recipes including beef are limited at my house. Often we have tacos, hamburgers, or we grill steaks. So what do you do when the grill master of the house doesn't want to grill or when you are taco-ed out (if that is a real thing)? This recipe is your solution -easy & quick with great flavors that anyone can whip up in no time.

QUICK & EASY WEEKNIGHT DINNER - Beef & Broccoli

Ingredients: 

1 lb skirt steak

1-2 heads broccoli chopped

3/4 cup long grain white rice or other rice option

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup soy sauce

3-4 cloves fresh garlic minced

2 tbs corn starch

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tbs oil (I use sesame for this recipe)

Salt + pepper to taste  

Instructions:  

Slice skirt steak into half inch pieces (I prefer to then cut long pieces in half or thirds, but it is really preference). Place steak in separate bowl. Sprinkle with half the amount of corn starch until all meat is dusted.

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add skirt steak to skillet and cook until browned occasionally turning pieces. 

In a bowl combine brown sugar, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, onion powder, garlic powder, remaining corn starch and whisk until sugar dissolved. 

Once meat has browned add combined liquid and chopped broccoli. Cook until liquid has thickened and broccoli is tender. 

Prepare rice per box instructions.

Serve skirt steak & broccoli over rice & Enjoy!
