Tickle Your Taste Buds Tuesday

IT'S BACK.....
one thing I want to do in the new year is spend more time on my blog so I am going to try really hard to post my Tickle your taste buds Tuesday EVERY Tuesday

We have stopped most of the "extras" in an attempt to cut back but the one thing I still do for myself is my Rachel Ray Magazine. There is always really good recipes and they normally don't cost that much and since she is the queen of the "30 minute meal" they are normally quick fixes!
This weeks recipe came from the February 2010 issue.
Broccoli chicken beef Bowls
We eat chicken all the time so I wanted something different and Sirloins were on sale so that is the beef I used.

1 1/2 cups brown rice cooked
3 garlic cloves thinly sliced
3 tablespoons of soy sauce
2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons of corn starch
Salt and Pepper
1 1/2 - 2 lbs of sirloin steaks (i used 2 good size steaks) Sliced THIN
EVOO (I used toasted sesame oil instead)
1 bunch of broccoli cut up the stems and stalks (i would use fresh because you want crispy broccoli and sometimes frozen can get soggy)
2 green onions -sliced

Cook rice----I use rice in a bag that takes 8 minutes.

Whisk have of the garlic, the soy sauce, sugar and 1/2 tablespoon of cornstarch season with salt and pepper. Add the beef and toss to coat and let sit 20 minutes

In another bowl whisk together 1/2 cup water and 1 tablespoon cornstarch.

Heat the oil in the skillet and add the garlic, cook on med until tender then add the broccoli stalks, cook for 1-2 minutes then add 1/4 cup of water and the rest of the broccoli cover and let steam for 3-4 minutes until its tender but still crisp. Transfer to a bowl.

In the same pan heat a little more evoo. add the beef mixture and whites of the green onions cook until the beef is cooked through but not over cooked maybe 5 minutes (your beef should be sliced pretty thin)

Stir the broccoli back in season with S&P then add the water/cornstarch mixture. Cook until the liquid thickens about 1 minute.

Turn off heat and stir in the greens of the green onions and serve over the brown rice!

Thats it super easy, super quick and super YUMMY!
