Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by heather in Ont

This recipe came from The "Complete Canadian Living Cookbook" where the recipes are tried till perfect before publishing. This is a quick and easy recipe that you can use chicken or pork instead of beef. Sometimes I add red & green peppers, cauliflower, along with the broccoli.

We made this tonight for dinner exactly as directed and it was amazing! Everyone liked it. The only thing I would do differently next time is cut back a little on the cornstarch in the sauce. It got really thick, really fast. Also, if you aren't a big fan of garlic, which we are, you might find it leaves a strong aftertaste of garlic for some reason. We'll definitely be making this again though! Thank you Heather!
