I have a really easy beef and broccoli recipe. I add about a cup of soy sauce, a half a table spoon of ginger and a few drops of sesame oil, sometimes garlic, to a pound of sliced beef. It all marinates while I am at work. After I come home I cook brown rice to serve with it. Of course you can cook any rice you like. I personally enjoy fried rice, but have not perfected it yet. I figure brown rice is healtier though. While the rice is boiling away, I put the meat with the marinate in a wok or a pan and let it brown. Usually most of the juice evaporates in the cooking process leaving a thick sauce. Then I add the broccoli florets and they steam while the meat is browning. Sometimes I use snowpeas instead. We eat it along with the rice and sometimes with some left over barbecue ribs and dumplings from our local Chinese take out. The dish is not as good as the beef and broccoli at take out, but it is tasty. I haven't perfected Chinese ribs or dumplings yet either. Though one time I did attempt to make Chinese ribs Niel enjoyed it, but I didn't.
