Sunday is supposed to be my day where I can spend hours cooking, but I just didn't have the time today with work being so busy, even on the weekends. So I decided quick and easy was the way to go tonight.
Sirloin steaks were on sale today, so I decided to do a variation of my beef and broccoli. I've also made something similar with bok choy and red peppers.
- 1 pound sirloin steak, trimmed and sliced into thin strips
- Soy sauce and Worcestershire for the marinade - just enough of each to lightly coat the steak strips
- 3 cloves garlic, chopped
- 2 green onions, chopped (or a chopped white onion)
- 1 large head broccoli, chopped into medium florets
- 1/2 red pepper, chopped into bite-sized pieces
- 1 package dry brown gravy mix, mixed with 1 cup of water
- 1.5 tsps Hoison sauce
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- Optional: red pepper flakes (I forgot them today!!)
- Trim the steak, slice into strips, and marinate for a few hours in soy sauce and Worcestershire. You could also add some garlic.
- Heat 1 tsp olive oil in a large pan; add steak, cook for about 8 minutes (flipping to cook all sides) and then drain the fat
- Return pan to heat and add the garlic and green onions; saute 2 minutes
- Add the broccoli and red peppers, saute 1 minute
- Mix the Hoison sauce with the gravy; add to pan and stir so everything is coated
- Add the additional soy sauce if needed/desired
- Turn heat to medium low and let simmer for about 8-10 minutes
- Serve over rice
Normally I make this dish without the Hoison, and with red pepper flakes, for a spicier version. The addition of the Hoison sauce added a nice sweetness and helped to thicken the sauce. Even better, it only took about 25 minutes from prep to finish!
