As the weather warms up it seems we’re all looking for ways to cut down on cooking time but still serve scrumptious meals. I know I’m also looking for meals that are a bit “lighter” at this time of the year. This Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry fits both the quicker and lighter requirements and can be on your table in 30 minutes! Packed full of nutritious Broccoli and tender Beef, this one is a frequent flyer at our house. I have switched it up at times using Chicken or Turkey Breast with great results. Try adding thinly sliced Mushroom and Carrots or substituting Pea Pods for the Broccoli. Remember the trick to any stir fry is to prep all the ingredients and line them up in the order you will use them. Do that and this is a snap to put together! Sooooo yummy and Sparky gives it 2 thumbs up!
Ready? Here’s what we’ll need.
