Lighter Beef & Broccoli ~~ 5 points

Recommended Posts

From “Good Housekeeping” magazine

4 servings

 

1 large bunch broccoli (about 1-1/2 pounds)

1 pound beef tenderloin steaks, trimmed, thinly cut into 1/8-inch-thick strips

3 garlic cloves, crushed with garlic press

1 tbs. grated, peeled fresh ginger

1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper

1 tsp. olive oil

3/4 cup chicken broth

3 tbs. soy sauce

1 tbs. cornstarch

1/2 tsp. Asian sesame oil

 

1. Cut broccoli flowerets into 1-1/2 inch pieces. Peel broccoli stems and cut

into 1/4-inch thick diagonal slices.

 

2. In a nonstick 12” skillet, heat 1/2 inch water to boiling over medium

high-heat. Add broccoli and cook 3 minutes, uncovered, or until tender-crisp.

Drain broccoli and set aside. Wipe skillet dry.

 

3. In medium bowl, toss beef with garlic, ginger, and crushed red pepper.

Add 1/2 tsp. olive oil to skillet and heat over medium-high heat until hot but

not smoking. Add half of beef mixture and cook 2 minutes or until beef just

loses its pink color throughout, stirring quickly and frequently. Transfer beef

to plate. Repeat with remaining 1/2 tsp. olive oil and beef mixture.

 

4. In cup, mix broth, soy sauce, cornstarch, and sesame oil until blended.

Return cooked beef to skillet. Stir in cornstarch mixture; heat to boiling. Cook

1 minute or until sauce thickens slightly, stirring. Add broccoli and toss to

coat.

This looks great! DH has been complaining about lack of real "meat" here. I'm going to make this for dinner tomorrow night, after I go to the store to get a few things.

 

Thank you!

 

printing out......

Thought I'd bump this one up again. Made it the other night and it was excellent. Tasted just like the chinese take-out I have been missing. Served it with brown rice and the whole family gobbled it up.
