Broccoli Beef

Better than Takeout Beef Broccoli
I love chinese food – but takeout is just expensive!

Here is a quick and simple recipe for a delicious Chinese-style Beef Broccoli!  Obviously I am not Chinese…..I am as British as they come, so this is my take on this dish – and even though I do say so myself I was very pleased with the results.

It doesn’t take long to prepare and cook, in face the cooking part is very fast – so make sure your ingredients are prepared in advance of starting cooking.

I also marinated the beef for about an hour….but if you have longer you can do it!  If you don’t have time to marinade the beef it should work just as well but may not have as rich a flavor.

This whole recipe came about because we had a HUGE bag of broccoli from a bulk store……I always buy it and end up throwing loads away….at the end of the day how much broccoli can two people eat.  This was a great solution – it used a whole lot of broccoli and saved us some money 🙂
