It’s better than take-out. I dare you to make it and prove me wrong. I dare you.

This recipe is amazing, it actually is. It is a crowd favourite among my friends so I will not waste your time any further. Let’s get down to the details.

Here’s what you need: 1 lb stew beef, 1 pack of mushrooms, 3 heads of broccoli [I had 4 as two were really small], fresh ginger, garlic, soy sauce, cornstarch, brown sugar and rice.

First off get the rice cooking. Next chop up the broccoli, slice the mushrooms, and mince one clove of garlic into one bowl. Next you want to thinly slice the stew beef, season with salt and pepper, and place in the next bowl. Make a mixture of 2 tbsp of cornstarch and 2 tbsp of water with one clove of minced garlic. Pour this mixture over the beef and stir to combine. Combine the soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger, and another tbsp of cornstarch for your sauce into the last bowl.

Next you want to cook the beef, remove from heat, then sauté the veggies. Once the veggies are how you like them, add the beef back in and pour in the sauce. Turn the temperature down, cover with lid and let simmer for a few minutes.
