Sunday Dinner

A recent goal that I have set for me and Ryan is to have a home cook meal 6 days out of the week. I thought that it would be a wonderful idea to share some of my yummy recipes that I make. Sundays are usually our biggest meals and they would be perfect days to set goals to share with yall at least one meal, once a week. So I hope yall enjoy...this one is a pintrest one that I made to work for me and my husband. To say that its a husband favorite would not describe the love my husband has for this meal. Its in one of his top tens.

Beef & Broccoli

First things first I make a marinate for the meat and let it sit for at least an hour (some times its several hours). I put baking soda, sugar, cornstarch, water, soy sauce, and some veggie oil in a bowl and whisk away. Then I cut up my steak into yummy bite size pieces and throw it in the bowl. I then let it sit for at least an hour but more is most certainly preferred. 

After we marinate the beef and we are ready to eat, I chop up some broccoli (you can use thawed frozen, but fresh is the best in my opinion). I then heat up olive oil on the skillet, after its nice and hot I throw the broccoli and cook for about 3 min. A warning, dont walk away, you dont want to burn them! 

Once the broccoli is done just transfer it to another plate and in the same skillet toss the meat in. While the meat is cooking I usually make the sauce. In this sauce I put some soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, and flour and whisk. 

After your meat is nice and brown I add some of the sauce and let simmer for about 3 min. Once the meat fully done cooking I add the broccoli. Here I let it cook on low for about 2 min and dump the rest of the sauce. 

Careful to not let it cook for to long, dont want the broccoli to get mushy. But now is the best part, serve it with some yummy white rice (this night I was craving potatoes so there are some mash potatoes)  And Voila!!! 

Please leave a comment or let me know how you enjoyed it, if you choose to make it!!
