I’m on a bit of a mission these days. While I love coming up with the most unique and fun recipe creations I can think of, I also really enjoy classic dishes like Chocolate Chip Cookies, Sesame Chicken, and Broccoli Salad. (not necessarily in that order, but you get the idea).
It’s what a lot of my recipes are based off of, but I realized I don’t actually have a lot of my favorite classics published on my site. So for the next few months I am going to be sharing some tried and true classic recipes that your whole family will love.
Take a gander at this Classic Beef with Broccoli. One of my favorite Chinese take-out dishes, quickly and easily prepared in your own kitchen!
I love the thick brown sauce that gets soaked up in the broccoli florets, it’s a tad sweet and a touch spicy and brimming with the flavors of garlic and ginger.
This family favorite comes together quickly because the beef is thinly sliced and marinated for just 15 minutes before being cooked over high heat to seal in the flavor and juices of the beef strips.
The broccoli is briefly cooked in boiling water to achieve a perfect tender-crisp texture.
Don’t hate me, but all my kids (even my picky 4 year old) love broccoli. Like, really love it. It’s weird, but I’m not complaining. They also believe every single type of protein that I cook (beef, pork, fish, chicken, etc.) is chicken. So I guess there’s always that.
Anyways, my kids raved that this was the best “Chicken” with Broccoli that they’ve ever eaten… you win some you lose some.
Rest assured, this Classic BEEF with Broccoli recipe will have you grabbing your chopsticks and digging in!
