Easy Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry

I like Asian cuisine but, unfortunately, my husband does not. Although I don't eat it often, I know the calorie count can be pretty high and there's usually a lot of sodium. Stir-fries are easy to prepare and by doing it yourself, you can make them much healthier than take-out.

This beef and broccoli stir fry uses lean sirloin steak, lower sodium soy sauce and beef broth along with fresh chopped broccoli and the kick of small amount of hot chili sauce. You could also add some fresh mushrooms and a handful of snow peas. Served over white or brown rice, it is an easy weeknight or weekend dinner that I think you'll enjoy.


To easily slice the meat into thin strips, place in the freezer for 45 to 60 minutes. The meat will be firm for slicing but not so hard that it can't be cut. Use a 6-3/4" Petite Carver to thinly slice the meat into strips


I will definitely make this at home even though I'll be the only one eating it which is not necessarily a bad thing.
