Beef ‘n’ broccoli : Wk47/5

Serves 4 : Very easy : Very quick
1 Tblsp vegetable oil
400gm rump steak, cut in strips
1 red onion, sliced
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 tsp grated ginger root
1 tsp chilli paste

400gm broccoli florets
6 spring onions, shredded
3 – 4 Tblsp soy sauce

Cashew nuts, to garnish

Heat the oil in a pan or wok.
Fry the beef for 2 – 3 minutes to seal.
Remove the meat from the pan and set aside.

Fry the onion, garlic and ginger until the onion softens.
Stir through the chilli paste.
Add the broccoli and a splash of water to the pan.
Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.

Turn up the heat and return the beef to the pan.
Add the spring onions and soy sauce.
Cook for another 3 – 4 minutes.

Serve garnished with cashew nuts.

I served this with noodles, but it also goes well with rice or naan breads.
Make this even faster – cook the broccoli first.

Thanks for the visit and comments, elpi. Shrimp sounds like a good idea - I'm always trying out new fish and vegetarian recipes.
