Beef and Broccoli

2    lbs     trimmed steak (round tip is my favorite)
1    lb      broccoli, sliced
3    med  carrots, medallioned
1    small red onion, chopped
2    C      soy sauce
1/2 C      vinegar
1    Tb    ground ginger
3    Tb    minced garlic (or garlic powder)

Slice beef into long thin strips. In a large mixing bowl combine soy sauce, vinegar, ginger and garlic. Add beef slices to liquid mix and marinade for 4 hours.

In a large frying pan or wok, heat 1/4 C olive oil. Add meat and vegetables. Cook until well done. Serve with rice or chow mein noodles. Serves 4-6 people.


  1. Sounds yummy, you can vary this by making a gravy out of the soy sauce ingredients and adding Mushrooms and Bell peppers instead of broccoli. It is yummy!

  2. Don't worry so much about trimming the fat. A falsehood taught to us these days is to remove fat from the diet. Too little fat in the diet will cause the body to store it. You must eat fat to loose fat. And natural, animal fats are not bad as we have been taught.... see Nourishing Traditions.

  3. I trim the fat so there isn't anything to drain later. I also don't like to chew on it with my meal. If you prefer not to trim it, go ahead. It's all a matter of taste and texture to me, not fat content. I totally agree that it is a misconception. Though if you trim your fat before storing the meat it will keep longer. The fat will make the meat oxidize faster. So if you prefer untrimmed meat, cook it soon after you buy it. Otherwise trim it. Just a tip.
