Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry

Beef and Broccoli stir fry is one of the most popular takeaways and as I have spent the downtime between Christmas writing a new eBook to thank those of you that sign up for my email list, I figured it was time to dust off my recipe for this family favourite. Now if you have already signed up for my email list don’t feel left out, leave me a comment below, don’t worry only I can see your email address and ask me for a copy and I will gladly send you a link to download my new book. Of course if you are new here or you have not signed up before… Why not? Don’t worry I won’t hold it against you (much) the sign up form is over to the right if you are on a computer or larger tablet, if you are on your phone keep scrolling down, it is at the bottom of the page.

But back to this classic fakeaway recipe. This beef and broccoli stir fry unashamedly uses all of the broccoli, I do get frustrated when people throw away the stalk of the broccoli it has a wonderful flavour and texture so it is always a part of this recipe for me. Just peel, dice and soften in boiling water a little and then add it into the stir fry. I’m definitely one of those people that feels the need to diet after the Christmas festivities, I do definitely have the need to mind the pennies though and cooking fakeaways at home can save a bucket load of cash and this beef and broccoli stir fry shows just how easy that can be… In fact, referring back to my eBook, I have a page in there that fills out both my Asian and Indian store cupboard. All of the ingredients needed to cook either Indian or Asian fakeaways at home any old time you like, and you still have not signed up yet? Why on earth not?

Recipe Notes

Stir fried food moves fast so get all ingredients ready before starting to cook. I like to serve this with simple jasmine rice but noodles would work just as well.

    YUM! Beef and broccoli is what I usually order! And I love using broccoli stems! They are such a great and useable part of broccoli! Will have to try this!

      Super have fun… Broccoli stems are such an underused part of the vegetable, much like cauli stems, both make great purees too 🙂

    Broccoli is one of my favourite flavour vehicles! It soaks up sauce and is magical…even those stalks! I signed up late last year and definitely would appreciate a link to your e-book.

      Hahaha, I know many people that are not so keen on broccoli, this works well with cauliflower too with exactly the same technique if that is more your thing 🙂
