Beef Broccoli

 I don't post a lot of recipes because as much as I love cooking (and love eating even more), I've become aware that I'm not very good in the kitchen.

Great baker. Mediocre cook.

But I made Beef Broccoli tonight and it was the easiest, tastiest dish ever. I mean it was sooooo good that I might put it on a weekly rotation.

 All you need is sliced steak (I used a cheap cut), broccoli, an onion, cornstarch, soy sauce and some brown sugar. Oh yeah, and ginger. And water.

So in a bowl combine 2 Tablespoons cornstarch, 2 Tablespoons water, some garlic powder (1/2 a teaspoon maybe) and blend. Then add the beef and toss.

Heat some oil in a wok or pan. Toss the beef in and cook till it's done. 5 minutes. Put it back in the bowl.

Then toss in your broccoli florets (I used 3 small heads), your sliced onion (used 3/4 of an onion), a little more oil and cook it.

While that cooks mix in another bowl 1/3 cup soy sauce, 2 Tablespoons brown sugar, 1 teaspoon ginger, 1 Tablespoon cornstarch and half a cup of water. Whisk till smooth.

Throw the beef back in the pan and then add your sauce. Cook it only a few minutes and watch that sauce thicken and look amazeballs.

Serve with rice.
It was the kind of yummy that made me believe I can cook.

Next time I'll throw some sort of seed on top and wow.
