The Best Easy Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry

The Best Easy Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry created by DianaEatingRichly watch icons / play

I clipped this recipe from Taste of Home magazine several years ago and have found it to be the best-tasting easy beef and broccoli stir-fry. It is credited to Ruth Stahl. I often use charcoal chuck steak, which is very tender and lean. I also like that it doesn't call for any unusual ingredients.

    Husband and family approved! Went in for seconds! Delicious and easy. Did add minced garlic to the soy sauce ginger concoction. Oh yeah and I never add sugar.

    Super easy recipe. The first time I made it, I followed the directions to a T. Have made this so many times, we know the recipe by heart now. Usually my teenage son makes it with beef or chicken. We also prefer it with a little more garlic, 1 TBSP less of brown sugar and a little cayenne pepper or red pepper flake added to it for a slight back heat. A lot of different veggies work well with this recipe. Having a family of 6 that are all very active this is a great easy meal to throw together. We usually 3x - 5x this recipe, cook everything separately and serve it like that or throw it all into a large cooking bowl. It heats up well also. We make this usually one to two times a month. One of the few meals the whole family agrees on.

    My husband rarely completes me on a meal (no fault of his...I'm just not that good of a cook). However... tonight's meal after making this....9 1/2 starts (not sure where I missed the half stars but he might want me to continue to keep trying!) I tweaked the recipe a little bit...but for the most part...stayed with the portions. It was DELICIOUS and easy
