Eat Healthy This Week For Less than $30 – Beef Broccoli
There is nothing better than having chinese take out without the take out. You get a delicious meal, you know all the ingredients that’s in it and you save a ton of money. The key to saving money with this meal is to catch the steak when it’s on sale. Don’t go out and buy full priced steak if you don’t have to. Any time you see the steaks marked down grab some and freeze it for later. You will thank yourself on those days when you have absolutely no idea what to make for dinner and you don’t’ have a lot of time.
Here is how to Make Beef Broccoli
In a bowl, mix together the soy sauce, cornstarch, sherry, brown sugar, ginger and garlic. Pour half the liquid over the sliced meat in a bowl and toss with your hands. Reserve the other half of the liquid and set aside.
Heat the oil in a heavy skillet (iron is best) or wok over high heat. Add the broccoli and stir for a minute. Remove to a plate.
Allow the skillet to get very hot again. With tongs, add the meat in a single layer. Spread out the meat as you add it to skillet, but do not stir for a good minute. (You want the meat to get as brown as possible in as short amount a time as possible.) Turn the meat to the other side and cook for another 30 seconds. Remove to a clean plate.
Pour the reserved sauce into the skillet along with the beef broth and oyster sauce. Cook over high heat until it starts to thicken. Add the beef and broccoli back into the skillet and toss to coat. Season with salt if needed
Serve over Chow Mein.
