Beef and Broccoli

Beef and Broccoli

As you guys saw with my previous post, I recently decided to re-create some of my favorite Chinese dishes. Orange Chicken came first, and that was phenomenal. That was inspired by Damn Delicious- a great food blog for any cuisine. This beef and broccoli recipe I got from Jo Cook’s. This was my first time on her site, and I cannot say I was disappointed! Especially after this beef and broccoli turned out so so so yummy. Unlike my Orange Chicken, I did not stray from this recipe- because it was so simple! There was no need to. She already uses low sodium soy sauce, for those of you looking to create a healthier version. I will say though, I did add in onions to this as well.

I love love love beef and broccoli. That and Cashew Basil Chicken are probably my favorite Chinese dishes. The only exception I made to this dish was that I didn’t have 3 tbsp honey. I simply put 1 tbsp in (because that is how much I had) and called it a day!
