Weekend Cooking: Ginger & Scallion Beef with Broccoli

When I pinned this recipe, I wasn't too sure Tai was going to like it. He normally dislikes stir-fries. Too many veggies. But this one only had two so I thought it was worth a shot. Luckily, he loved it. It was yummy. Tai declared it a keeper.
I made some small changes to her recipe so here's how I made it.

Ginger & Scallion Beef With Broccoli

1 lb flank steak
1/2 lb broccoli florets
2 tbs grated ginger
2 green or spring onions, cut into 1/2 pieces

1/2 tsp rice wine vinegar

3 tbs oyster sauce
2 tsp soy sauce
2 tsp honey

  1. I bet this was good -- ginger, soy, and oyster sauce sound like a great combo. This one is great for broccoli season, just around the corner in my part of the world.

  2. Sounds yummy! I love stir fries :).

  3. Broccoli and ginger stir fry is a fav with my husband. I'll be making this for him. Thanks,

  4. This looks great - I love stir fries but I'm not a fan of the pre-packed veg mixes, so something like this would be perfect.

  5. Ooh, I think the men in my family would love this recipe.

  6. This seriously looks delicious!! I want to eat it right now!
