Whip up a chef-quality stir-fry recipe at home. This beef and broccoli stir-fry packs in more vegetables and nearly halves the calories of what you would find in a restaurant. And this healthy dinner takes just 30 minutes to prep, so it's about as quick as takeout too. Ginger, which adds a lively kick to this stir-fry, has long been touted for its power to settle stomachs. But that's not its only superpower: preliminary research suggests it may improve blood sugar and inflammation too.

  • Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large flat-bottom wok or cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the steak and cook, stirring once, until browned, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a clean plate. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and broccoli; cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly tender, about 2 minutes. Stir in scallions, ginger and garlic; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Whisk the tamari mixture and add it, along with the beef, back to the pan; cook until the sauce thickens, about 1 minute. Serve over brown rice and garnish with crushed red pepper, if desired.

I did not have low-sodium broth or low-sodium tamari as listed in the recipe, and agree with the 8/16 reviewer that the sauce was a bit salty that way. On the other hand, like the 8/20 reviewer mentioned, the beef is bland, but when mixed into the sauce, you don't notice that anymore. Unlike that reviewer, next time I still will not season the meat, but will probably use EITHER low sodium broth OR low sodium tamari, and I think it'll be perfect then. The whole family enjoyed this and it went together very quickly. I would recommend using a partially thawed frozen sirloin to help with slicing. Slicing the beef took longer than making the meal itself! Read More

I used low-sodium soy sauce & low-sodium chicken broth & I didn't find it salty as the previous review mentioned. However, I found the beef itself lacking in flavor. The next time I make this I'm going to season the beef before I cook it. I haven't tried the left-overs yet so the beef may taste better today after marinating in the sauce for 24 hours. I enjoyed the flavor of everything else. Seasoning the beef is the only tweak I recommend. Read More

Tasty but a bit on the salty side. I'd make sure next time to make some tweaks and use low sodium tamari and low sodium chicken broth Read More
