Coat skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat for one minute. Add beef, onion and minced garlic; stir fry until brown. Remove the beef to a plate and keep warm. Add half the broth and broccoli to pan. Cover and smimmer until broccoli is tender crisp. Mix cornstarch, brown sugar, garlic powder, ginger and soy sauce with remaining broth until smooth; add to the pan. Cook until mixture begins thicken, stirring constantly. Return beef to mixture, stir and serve over rice.
VERSITILE... We alos cut the calories by eating this in high-fibre pita pockets. I treated this as a stir-fry - sauted the meat as instructed, added the vegetables for 5 minutes longer and I then halved the broth and cornstarch amounts, leaving everything else the same. It had lots of 'kick' - YUM!
We really liked this recipe. We added some mushrooms and sweet red pepper. I think I would add fresh ginger instead of ground. I would also add some water chestnuts to add more texture. Very good recipe!
This recipe was great! We love beef w/ broccoli but have not ate is since we started the diet! This will definitely be a new main meal in our house. We also added some shredded carrots, mushrooms, and green peppers. Thanks for adding this recipe!!
Loved this recipe, it was very easy. Since my Hubby's system doesn't agree w/Broccoli I made it with Carrots and steamed my broccoli on the side. Then I got to have this for lunch the next two days. I added some Toasted seasame seeds at the end, which added great flavor too.
Great basic recipe and I took some of the suggestions and added mushrooms, water chestnuts, and peppers. Used shredded left over roast beef that was very tender and it worked. Will definitely use this recipe again and will try a chicken variation. Thanks for sharing!
