Beef and Chinese Broccoli
1 lean – 3 greens – 0 healthy fats – 3 condiments (per serving)
4 servings Ingredients: • 1 tsp baking soda • 1¼ lb. top round beef, sliced ¼-inch thin and 2-inches long • ¼ tsp black pepper • 6 cups Chinese broccoli, leaves and stems separated, washed • 2 tsp fresh ginger root, peeled and minced • 3 cloves garlic, minced • 1 tbsp light soy sauce • 2 tbsp oyster sauce • 1/8 tsp salt
1. Slice beef and toss with baking soda. Set aside for 30 minutes.
2. Rinse beef and pat dry.
3. Slice stems of broccoli ¼-inch thin and 2-inches long diagonally; keep separate from leaves. Roughly chop the leaves into bite-sized pieces.
4. Heat a wok or nonstick skillet until hot and sear the beef about 30 seconds on one side until brown. Add garlic, ginger, oyster sauce, soy sauce, and black pepper. Stir together and cook for another 15 seconds; remove from wok or skillet.
5. Use the same wok or skillet to stir-fry the broccoli. Heat on high, add broccoli stems, and stir-fry until semi-tender. Add leaves, and pour all of the beef including juices back into the wok or skillet. Toss to combine.
Tip: Substitute broccoli or broccolini for the Chinese broccoli.
