Christie from A Kitchen Hoor's Adventures said: "The kids have after school games or events, your work day is busy as you know what and you need a quick and easy meal on the table.  Enter the stir fry!  No one says they have to be Asian flavored.  Try a garlic butter and steak stir fry, or a shrimp scampi stir fry.  Use the stir fry method for something unique."

I love a good stir fry! SO many possibilities in terms of mixing and matching your veggies and proteins, and then choose your flavor profile. 

I decided I wanted to to make a beef and broccoli stir fry - Chinese is one of the few things we order for delivery fairly regularly; probably almost once a month! While I often order the same thing, every now and then I get a craving for some beef and broccoli and have to give this classic, richly sauced dish a try. I was excited to make a homemade version, and was pretty happy with how this one came out! A rich, hearty sauce, chock full of hearty bites of beef and tender broccoli served atop a bed of rice to sop up all that flavorful sauce. You can tweak the sauce flavor to your preference - if you're not a huge hoisin fan I'd start with less and then add to taste, it can be pretty potent!

Stir frys are such a great go to for a busy evening - pretty much everything done in one big pot and maybe some rice on the side and voila - dinner is served! Plus you can often prep your veggies, sauce, and meat ahead of time if you know you'll be in a time crunch when it's time to cook.

    For the marinade
    2/3 cup soy sauce
    2/3 cup lime juice
    4 tsp toasted sesame oil
    1/4 cup packed brown sugar
    2 TBS ginger paste
    1 TBS minced garlic, jarred
    1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
    1 lb sirloin steak, sliced very thinly against the grain

    For the Stir Fry
    Marinated sirloin
    4 TBS cornstarch, divided
    3 TBS oil, divided
    2 TBS sesame seeds, divided
    1 TBS minced garlic (jarred)
    Pinch kosher salt
    2 large heads broccoli, cut into florets
    2 cups chicken broth (1 14-oz can)
    3 TBS hoisin sauce

    1. Combine all marinade ingredients (except steak) in a medium sized bowl, or 4-cup measurer. Add in the sliced sirloin once marinade is well combined. Press to submerge and set aside for at least 20-30 minutes (can place in the refrigerator).
    2. This is a great time to put on a pot of Instant Pot Brown Rice to cook!
    3. Add 3 TBS of cornstarch into a bowl, use a fork to pull the steak out of the marinade and add to the cornstarch, mix the steak to coat well in the cornstarch.
    4. To the remaining sauce, add the remaining 1 TBS cornstarch and hoisin sauce, mix well and set aside.
    5. Heat 2 TBS oil in a large nonstick skillet and saute the coated beef (in batches if necessary). Brown well on both sides (about 2-3 minutes per side).
    6. Remove cooked beef from skillet, and set aside.
    7. Add remaining oil to the skillet and saute the broccoli, along with 1 TBS sesame seeds, sprinkle of salt, and 1 TBS of minced garlic. Stir until garlic is fragrant and everything begins to brown (just a couple minutes). Pour in the chicken broth and simmer the broccoli until tender (cover the pan if needed).
    8. Mix one more time, then pour in the sauce into the pan, and add the beef back in as well. Stir gently to combine ingredients. Bring to a simmer and allow sauce to thicken.
    9. Serve beef and broccoli over cooked rice if desired, sprinkled with additional sesame seeds.
