Beef and Broccoli Thai Stir-Fry

Beef and Broccoli Thai Stir-Fry

It’s seriously a miracle that you’re even seeing the following recipe.

I’ve tried to photograph it no less than five times in the past two months. Sometimes, it’s too dark. Other times I get annoyed that my food is cooling quickly, so I give up on capturing the perfect picture.

Talk about an epic camera fail. That is, until Wednesday rolled around.

This one-bowl wonder’s lucky day had finally arrived. A craving for TJ’s Satay Peanut Sauce, broccoli slaw and beef hit around 2 p.m. (a.k.a. the perfect excuse to attempt another Thai stir-fry).
 

Broccoli slaw = Crunchy Base
 Spices + Beef + Veggies = Golden-Brown Goodness!

A decent picture at last! Thank you, Florida sunshine.
This dish is too easy to make. I now have no legitimate excuse to order Thai takeout, not that I ever did in the first place. 😉

Serves One

 

Effort: Minimal

Total Preparation and Cook Time: 15 minutes 

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 lb. lean ground beef (I used the 93/7 variety.)
  • 1/4 cup bell peppers (red, green, yellow or all three)
  • 1/4 cup diced baby carrots
  • One handful broccoli florets
  • 1/2 cup broccoli slaw
  • Dash of sea salt 
  • 1/4 teaspoon of the following spices: ginger, cinnamon, black pepper, chili powder 
  • One tablespoon TJ’s Satay Peanut Sauce
  • One tablespoon low sodium soy sauce  
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • Two teaspoons extra virgin olive oil

Steps:

  1. Place one teaspoon oil in a non-stick skillet and turn stove on to medium-high heat.
  2. Place broccoli slaw in a large bowl. Set aside.
  3. Chop the carrots, peppers and broccoli. Place in skillet.
  4. Fry veggies for five minutes, stirring every so often to prevent them from burning.
  5. Remove veggies from pan and set aside on a plate.
  6. Add the second teaspoon of oil to the skillet. Add beef and season with all spices.
  7. Cook and stir beef continuously for two to three minutes or until it is golden brown.
  8. Reduce heat to low. 
  9. Place veggies back in skillet. Add garlic, peanut sauce and soy sauce.
  10. Stir and heat for an additional two minutes.
  11. Eat!
