If you are like me and always wondering what to cook for dinner, this beef and broccoli is an easy option that my family loves. My kids also love rice and anything with soy sauce. You can also adjust the recipe to your diet, for example use honey instead of brown sugar or coconut aminos in place of soy sauce. This recipe is so easy and ready in under 30 minutes. I chose to marinade the meat for about an hour, but it’s optional.
