Description

You will never order take out again! This recipe is so quick and easy. Above all, it is delicious! I lick the pan every time…seriously! For soy-free substitute, click on the related blog link.

Ingredients

  • 1-½ cup White Rice
  • 2 pounds Stew Beef, Cut In Chunks Or Slices
  • ¼ cups Cornstarch Or Arrowroot Flour
  • 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Canola Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Sesame Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Ginger Root, Grated
  • 1 Tablespoon Garlic, Minced
  • ¾ cups Brown Sugar
  • ½ cups Soy Sauce
  • ½ cups Water
  • 12 ounces, weight Broccoli Florets, Frozen
  • Sesame Seeds

Preparation

Prepare rice according to package directions.

Toss beef with cornstarch. Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add beef and brown on all sides. Remove beef to a plate.

Combine canola oil, sesame oil, ginger, garlic, and brown sugar into the meat pan. Add in soy sauce and water; make sure you scrape up all of the beef droppings. Bring the sauce to a boil and cook until smooth and the sugar melts. Add browned beef back to pan with sauce; simmer until beef cooks through and sauce thickens a little.

While beef simmers, steam broccoli according to package instructions.

Serve beef on top of rice with steamed broccoli and garnish with roasted sesame seeds. (Then lick the pan.)

This was delicious. In order to make sure the beef was tender, I let it simmer a bit longer (after it was cooked through), before adding the broccoli. We’ll definitely have this again!

The flavor for this dish was wonderful. I didn’t score it higher because the beef was very chewy and wonder if a different cut of meat wouldn’t be more tender. The sauce also never really thickened up like I wanted, so I’m guessing I didn’t use enough corn starch or didn’t allow it to simmer long enough. But, I will make this again because my family really like how it tasted and maybe I can nail down my meat and sauce issues.

We thought this was ok. I used less beef than called for, but had to use several more Tablespoons of oil b/c I cooked the beef in batches and each time the cornstarch just seemed to soak it all up. I may try it again sometime to see if we like it better the second time around.
