Mongolian Beef and Broccoli

 This week I am revisiting the SkinnyTaste cookbook before the library wants the copy back.  So far we have liked all recipes we have tried with the exception of a chili mac dish.   Mongolian beef and broccoli was next on the list to try.



The recipe may be found HERE.  It's meant to be a serving for four people and I think we will get two dinners out of it.  I just need to steam and sautee more broccoli as we ate so much of it the first night.



Notes: Cutting the beef into thin slices made it more tender (for some reason) than the thicker slices.  I did a little of each to experiment.  Thin works best.  
Also, fresh ginger is definitely needed and the aroma when you add it is quite noticeable.

    1. JoAnn, I’d meaning to get to this one for awhile. Having the cookbook checked out of the library I am trying as many recipes as I can before it’s due!

  2. I definitely need to pull my copy of this book off the shelf. I'm not sure I ever used it! I made our version of chicken fried rice for dinner tonight so similar theme!

  4. Looking at the recipe reminded me I hadn't bought cauliflower rice in a while. I do have a big head of cauliflower right now, perhaps I should make my own?

    1. Jackie, well this recipe would need rice as a side dish in my opinion and if you make cauliflower rice, yes absolutely!! This can be gluten free but using tamari instead of soy sauce.

  5. I had a meal of beef and broccoli years ago that I have been trying to replicate ever since. Maybe this is the recipe that would be the one!

  6. Oh my gosh, I do the same thing when I have a cookbook overdue at the library -- make a ton of recipes out of it! Or in once case, I photocopied the pages I was most interested in (shhhh don't tell! :)). This looks yummy!

    1. Cecilia, I used to do the same when I was working and had access to a copier. Now I hustle through or keep checking the book out. I may purchase this one though.

  7. I often photograph pages from a good library cookbook. Sometimes (okay, I admit it---frequently) I buy the book.

    1. Deb, this one will get used a lot so I’ll get it second hand. Some great recipes in this one!

  8. This is going on my meal plan this week. I may have made this recipe before; can't remember. So funny, because (as I said on IG), I made three Skinnytaste meals this week. The recipes are sooooo reliable.

Chicken Cosima for Potluck

  It's Potluck time at I Heart Cooking Club . Nigella Lawson's last cookbook flat out didn't thrill me.  I am a big fan of hers ...
