As the name implies, this recipe is made of beef and broccoli. Beef broccoli recipe is an Asian beef main dish. The combination of flavors, as well as the sauce, gives this recipe that delightful Asian taste.
I am not a fanatic of broccoli. Broccoli came from the Italian word “broccolo”, which means the flowering crest of a cabbage that is how it actually looks. Though this edible green plant from the cabbage family is said to be so healthy, I would not dare making a dish that is filled with it. However, this lovely just works wonderfully in this beef broccoli cuisine that one cannot resist it. They said that broccoli can lower cholesterol level and can have strong, positive impact on a person’s detoxification system. Well, that can be a consolation for me in eating this kind of crucifer.
In this recipe, you will surely want the broccoli good tasting. Ensure then that you will boil it appropriately. Or you may want it steamed. Also, choose the best beef part to use. I know you want it tender.
