Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry
This Better-Than-Takeout beef and broccoli stir-fry will satisfy your Chinese takeout cravings and save you money!
If you’re like me, picking up Chinese takeout on a weeknight is an easy solution for dinner but maybe not so much a great idea when you hate spending the money. So why not save some money (and calories) and make your own?
I love meat and veggie stir-fry so much that I pretty much make it on a weekly basis. Stir-frying is a cooking technique where ingredients are quickly “fried” and cooked in a wok. This means your entire meal can be cooked in under 30 minutes and stored for a few days (perfect for all us meal preppers out there).
Beef and broccoli is such a classic “takeout” meal and super easy to make. You can use fresh or frozen veggies and fresh or frozen beef. I’ve used all combinations and they’re all tasty. Stir-fry is as simple as throwing meat and veggies in a pan over high heat until the veggies are tender and the meat is cooked.
I usually eat my stir-fry meals sauce-less, but you can make my homemade, 2-ingredient stir-fry sauce. It’s sweet and savory, allowing all the flavors to come together.
Serve over plain rice, fried rice or noodles. Check out the recipe for this beef and broccoli stir-fry below!
