Beef & Broccoli Stir Fry

Beef & Broccoli Stir FryIMG_1427One 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:

(Makes 4 servings, 1 cup each)

  • 1⁄4 cup reduced-sodium organic tamari soy sauce
  • 6 Tbsp. water, divided use
  • 2 Tbsp. tapioca starch, divided use ( I used Cornstarch just because I didn’t have Tapioca)
  • 1 Tbsp. raw honey
  • 1 lb. raw top sirloin beef, trimmed of fat,

    sliced into 1⁄2-inch-thick pieces

  • 1 Tsp. extra-virgin organic coconut oil
  • 4 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 thin slice fresh ginger, peeled, finely chopped

    1. Combine soy sauce, 4 Tbsp. water, 1 Tbsp. tapioca, and honey in a small bowl; mix well. Set aside.

    2. Combine remaining 1 Tbsp. tapioca and 2 Tbsp. water in a large bowl; mix well.

  1. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef; cook, stirring frequently, for 2 minutes, or until cooked through and no longer pink. Remove from heat, keep warm.
  2. Add broccoli, garlic, and ginger to skillet; cook, stirring frequently, for
    2 to 3 minutes. Place broccoli mixture in beef bowl.
  3. Add soy sauce mixture to skillet; cook, stirring constantly, over medium-high heat for 30 seconds, or until thickened. Return beef and broccoli mixture to skillet; cook, for 1 to 2 minutes, or until well mixed and heated through.
