Stir fry’s make excellent weeknight meals, and this easy Beef & Broccoli Stir Fry with garlic, ginger, and soy sauce is sure to make it onto your weekly rotation.
I have fond memories of eating this Beef & Broccoli stir fry when I was about 5 weeks pregnant. I hadn’t yet experienced food aversions, and my appetite and taste for food was really heightened. So much so, that when my husband and I sat down to eat this meal, I sat there as I took each bite, eyes closed, basically having an out-of-body food experience. It was just so good.
Now this experience was slightly altered because, y’know, hormones. But! I promise it’s still a most delicious stir fry that I know you and your family will love. Especially if you’re looking for a meal that’s quick and easy to make during the week.
I mean, how can you go wrong with garlic, ginger, soy sauce, beef…?
It’s the ultimate combination.
