Beef with Broccoli is an Asian beef main dish. As the name suggests, this dish is mainly comprised of beef and broccoli combined with different sauces for that delightful Asian flavor.This simple recipe is so easy to follow. I would suggest though that you use beef sirloin or tenderloin to ensure that your dish will come-out tender.
If in case you don’t have them around and opted for another less tender beef part, it would help if you slice the meat thinly and pound it with a meat pounder.
