Beef and Broccoli

Beef and Broccoli

This is another family favorite recipe. It was adapted from a recipe on All Recipes. I usually BBQ sirloin steak one night and cook an extra steak or two. Then another night that week I’ll use the leftover steak to make Beef and Broccoli. I often add other vegetables to change it up a bit. This time I just threw in a few shredded carrots.

My family loves stir fry served over ramen noodles, but my college son took my case of ramen noodles when he left for school two weeks ago (he did a lot of shopping in my pantry before he left), so we had it over fettucine instead. Reduce the amount of red pepper flakes if you don’t like spicy food.
