No need for takeout, here’s the healthier version. “This Korean beef broccoli only takes a few minutes to prep and then you marinate it for a couple of hours,” says Lenkert. “After it’s marinated, it only takes six minutes to finish the dish. It’s a really satisfying and super-fast healthy meal.”
Korean Beef Broccoli
Ingredients: 1 lb. beef top sirloin or rib eye, thinly sliced 1 heaping Tbl. garlic, minced 2 Tbl. onion, grated 3 Tbl. soy sauce 1 Tbl. sugar 1 Tbl. honey 1 Tbl. sesame oil 1 Tbl. sesame seeds, plus more for garnish Pinch of freshly ground black pepper 4 cups broccoli florets, halved lengthwise Water, as needed 1 scallion, sliced into thin strips, for garnish
Directions: 1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the beef, garlic, onion, soy sauce, sugar, honey, sesame oil, sesame seeds and pepper. Seal and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours. 2. Steam or boil the broccoli until cooked but still firm. Set aside to cool. 3. Heat a saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the beef, shaking off any marinade, and cook, stirring frequently, for 3 to 6 minutes, or until done. Add the broccoli during the last 2 minutes of cooking, to heat and coat it with the cooking juices. If the pan gets too dry, add a little water. Garnish with sliced scallions and serve.
