30 Snatches (135/95)

Recipe of the Week:
This week we found an awesome beef and broccoli recipe. If you’re looking for some added carbohydrates I would include some rice to this dish. Enjoy!

3/4lb. lean steak (such as top sirloin, or loin tip) thinly sliced
2 Tbsp arrowroot or cornstarch*
1lb. broccolini (or broccoli), cut into 2” sections
1/2 cup soy sauce
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 tsp fresh ginger, minced
1/2 tsp black pepper, plus more to taste
1/4–1/2 cup water, as desired
olive oil or coconut oil, for cooking

1) In a medium bowl, combine thinly sliced steak with arrowroot (or cornstarch) and a pinch of pepper. Toss to coat well.
2) Heat a drizzle of oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Working in batches, add a few slices of steak (not touching each other) to the pan. Cook 60-90 seconds per side, then transfer to a clean plate or bowl. Repeat with remaining steak, adding more oil to the pan as needed.
3) When all the steak is cooked, add broccoli to the pan (again, if the pan is a bit dry, add a bit more oil). Cook 4-5 minutes, or until crisp-tender (cook longer if you like your broccoli softer).
4) While the broccoli is cooking, mix up your sauce by combining the soy sauce, garlic, ginger, and pepper.
5) When broccoli is cooked through, transfer to plate/bowl with the steak. Pour sauce into the pan and stir to scrape up any browned bits. Return cooked broccoli and steak to the pan and stir to coat. The sauce should naturally thicken as it heats through and bubbles for a few minutes (3-5 minutes). If sauce is too thick, add a bit of water
