Beef and Broccoli

Okay, so here is our very favorite Beef and Broccoli Dish. Thanks to Julie Badger Jensen and her Essential Mormon Celebrations cookbook!
Beef and Broccoli
1 pound top round beef steak
1/4 C soy sauce
2 T sugar
1/4 C white grape juice or apple juice
2 T cornstarch
1 C water
2 C fresh broccoli florets, stems removed
4 T vegetable or olive oil, divided
2 t sesame oil

Cut beef steak into 2-inch strips (easier to do when still slightly frozen or just have the butcher do it for you). Set aside. Combine soy sauce, sugar, juice, cornstarch, and water in a small bowl; set aside. In a large skillet, stir-fry broccoli in 2 T oil for about 5 minutes over medium heat. Do not overcook. Place broccoli in another dish. Pour remaining oil in the same sillet and heat on medium-high heat. Add beef and cook until well-browned on all sides, about 10 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, not more than 1 minute. Pour soy sauce mixture over meat and cook until slightly thickened. Stir in sesame oil. Remove from heat. Stir in broccoli. Serve over hot steamed rice. Makes 8 servings.

I love beef and broccoli so I will have to try that recipe! It may be a while, though, since right now we're eating a lot of what we like to call "dinner snack."

I made this the other night and I love it! I especially love the sauce. I have been looking for a long time for a homemade teriyaki that I like- and thanks to you- I have found it!
