Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry

Beef and broccoli stir fry was one of my favorite foods in college. I would head to the mall and grab a plate in the food court and eat it for 2 or 3 meals. Once I got married and had my own family, heading out for takeout wasn’t usually an option. I missed my favorite chinese dish though and started playing around with some ingredients. Here’s what I came up with. As long as my daughter was little, this was plenty for the three of us. Nowadays I double the recipe and have enough leftover for lunch for me the next day.
