Beef & Broccoli Stir FryOne of the best recipes I have ever tried and it’s so simple and quick. I can’t get over how beautiful and colourful this picture looks of the vegetables cooking. Why would anyone want to eat anything else?
I started a Brand New Program and it’s called a “WEEK OF HARD LABOR” and it’s with my absolute favourite personal trainer. I don’t know why and call me crazy, but he pushes me when I need it. So the best part is that with every new program you also get a meal plan. This my friends are one of the recipes and I LOVE IT! My husband and I have always loved any type of Stir Fry, in fact, it’s one of the first dishes he actually made me when we were dating ( whew that’s going back a few years lol) So it’s easy to see why I love Stir Fry so much.
Here are the ingredients and the directions for the Beef & Broccoli Stir Fry:
