Almond Beef with Broccoli recipe

This Asian-inspired stir-fried beef dish is a simple and easy dish that is as filling and nutritious as it is savory. Thin beef strips are stir fried in a flavorful marinade of soy sauce, garlic and ginger, and served atop a bed of fresh broccoli. A topping of toasted almonds adds a hearty crunch to the hearty dish.

Serve with white rice if desired.

Ingredients:

  • ¾ lb broccoli florets
  • 1/3 lb beef sirloin, cut into thin strips
  • ½ cup blanched almonds, toasted
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons white wine
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • ½ teaspoon cornstarch.
  • ½ teaspoon sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • Pinch of ground ginger
  • Boiling water

Directions:

  1. In medium bowl combine beef, white wine, cornstarch, soy sauce, sugar, garlic powder and ginger. Stir gently to combine and cover. Let marinate for 30 minutes.

  2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Drop broccoli into boiling water and boil for 2 minutes to blanch. Plunge broccoli into cold water and drain. Set aside.

  3. Add 2 Tbsp of olive oil in a large wok or skillet over high heat. Add broccoli and fry for 2 minutes. Remove to serving plate.

  4. Add remaining olive oil to pan, and heat. Add beef and fry for 1 minute, reserving marinade.

  5. Add marinade and lower heat slightly. Stir until beef is glazed and marinade is reduced. Serve on top of broccoli, and sprinkle with almonds.
