Gluten Free Beef and Broccoli
1 pound beef steak (we buy steak in bulk from Costco and freeze them.)
1/4 cup gluten free soy sauce (Walmart's Great Value brand is gluten free and very inexpensive)
3 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
1 1/4 cup cold water
16 ounces frozen broccoli florets
2 Tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves minced garlic
2 teaspoons sesame oil (this is the secret to make it taste like it came from a fabulous restaurant)
Combine soy sauce, sugar, corn starch, and water in a small bowl and set aside. Cut steak against the grain into thin strips about 1/4 inch thick. I find it's easiest to cut the steak when it's frozen (thaw it for 30 minutes so that it's not rock solid). Heat a large skillet to medium high. Put the olive oil and steak in the skillet and cook both sides until brown, about 4-5 minutes. Steam broccoli in the microwave or in a steamer while steak is cooking. When the steak is brown, add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Pour the soy sauce mixture over the meat and cook until it begins to thicken. Stir in the sesame oil. Remove from heat, stir in the steamed broccoli and serve over rice.
I hope you enjoy this as much as our family does!
