Beef and Broccoli


I’m guilty, are you?

Somedays are so crazy, the last thing you want to do is slave in the kitchen making a meal from scratch, especially if you’re like me and you’ve already spent the entire day in there already.  The alternative?  To gravitate towards something instantly satisfying.  And on days when you crave comfort?  Often times, it’s seemingly something that’s greasy and Chinese food is my go-to but I never feel great afterwards.  Cue this beef and broccoli recipe.  Your wallet will thank you and for the time?  It takes less time than both delivery or take out and I promise the leftovers taste exponentially better.
