Skip the Takeout: Broccoli & Beef

Broccoli & Beef
I love getting takeout from our local Chinese restaurant, but with 4 little kids it doesn't happen very often. After playing with a few different recipes, I finally found one that has me skipping the takeout! This broccoli & beef is a healthier and tastier version than the one I used to get and much cheaper to make!

I use a few different types of steak, depending on sale prices.  Round steak or flank steak are my favorites. Sometimes I cheat and buy shredded carrots, but I generally let my 8yo use the mandolin to slice them and finish cutting them myself. We've found the addition of carrots really helps complete this, while providing extra nutrients, and all the boys love carrots so it's a win-win!

If you don't have a favorite teriyaki sauce, it is super simple to make! One of my favorite recipes only uses 4 ingredients and is a delicious gluten-free teriyaki sauce that you can in the fridge for whenever you need it!
