Sometimes I find meat in the back crevices of the freezer and I am embarrassed to admit how long it's been stored. I'm some sort of a weird combination of bargain-hunter and food-hoarder. I find great deals, but then don't want to actually use it up. Ridiculous, right?
Anyways, I found these lovely strip steaks, and knew they would need some fantastic flavor to overwrite their age. :) This sweet garlic-ginger stir fry was the perfect solution! This is a fast and easy dinner idea. The longest part is cooking the rice.
Garlic Ginger Beef Broccoli Stir Fry Recipe
recipe inspired by Rebecca on Tasty Kitchen
2 Tbsp canola oil
2 New York Strip steaks
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 - 1 inch piece candied ginger, finely chopped
2 Tbsp brown sugar
3 Tbsp soy sauce
2 cups cooked brown rice
2 cups steamed broccoli
Slice each steak into thin strips, working against the grain.
In a large skillet add the canola oil and heat over medium. Once hot, add in garlic and ginger and cook 1-2 minutes. Arrange the beef slices in the pan and cook 2-3 minutes on each side. Sprinkle in brown sugar and soy sauce. Stir to coat the beef with the sugar. Cook another 5 minutes until sticky, like syrup.
Serve beef atop brown rice and steamed broccoli. Add additional soy sauce if desired.
