As I previously mentioned in this blog, my husband and I don't eat much red meat. However, last week I was craving some beef. Again, I dug through my recipe files and I found another recipe which I haven't made in forever. The recipe was stir-fried beef and broccoli from the October 1999 issue of Gourmet Magazine.
As I was near Wegmans last week, I popped in to pick up the main ingredients for this dish, which were boneless sirloin and fresh broccoli. I purchased a small package of that was labeled half bonless sirloin, that was over $5/lb. Just a note, I was at Foodtown yesterday and they had boneless top round for stir fry that was $4.99/lb.
The stir-fried beef and brocccoli can be prepared in 45 minutes or less, which make this a great dish for this for those cooks that don't want put in alot of time after a long day of working and commuting. The beef does have to marinate for 20 minutes, but during that time you can be preparing the rice, broccoli and other ingredients that are needed for the stir fry.
I must say that the boneless sirloin from Wegmans was delicious in this dish and well worth the price. It's a great recipe and a good way to work a vegetable into the menu.
