Garlic Ginger Beef Broccoli Stir Fry Recipe


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
Serves 2

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. 



  1. I totally understand the bargain shopper/hoarder combo. We just went in with several other families to purchase a quarter side of beef. It was a fantastic deal and now our freezer is loaded with beef, but I feel like I don't want to use it up to fast! Silly.

  2. Wow! That recipe is very great and it looks delicious! I think this dish is perfect for our meal for tomorrow. I will now go to the market and buy some ingredients.
