Sweet and Savory Broccoli Beef

Servings: 4
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes

● 8 oz rice noodles (around 1⁄4 inch wide)
● 1 lb flat iron steak
● kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
● 1 bunch broccoli (1 lb)
● 2 tbsp vegetable oil, divided
● 1⁄4 cup soy sauce
● 2 tbsp rice vinegar
● 2 tbsp brown sugar
● 1 tbsp Sriracha or favorite chili sauce
● 1 tsp fish sauce
● 2 tsp grated peeled ginger
● 3 garlic cloves, minced
● 2 tbsp water
● thinly sliced green onions for garnish (optional)

1. Cook the noodles according to the package directions and drain. Rinse with cold
water to stop the cooking and to keep from sticking together.
2. Thinly slice the steak against the grain into 1⁄4 inch slices. Pat dry with paper towels.
Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
3. Cut off the florets from the broccoli stem. Slice into 1⁄2 thick pieces. Try to make sure the
pieces are all the same size to ensure even cooking. Peel the stem and slice into thin
4. Heat half the oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add half the beef slices
and cook until golden browned on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Remove meat
to a plate and repeat with the remaining oil and slices. Reduce the heat to medium.
5. Whisk all the remaining ingredients, except for the green onions, in a small bowl until
combined. Add the sauce and broccoli to the pan. Cook until the broccoli just
becomes tender, about 4 minutes. Stir often to prevent burning.
6. Add the beef back to the pan and stir to coat in the sauce. Cook 1 minute or until the
meat is warmed through and reaches a temperature of at least 145°F. Toss in the
noodles. Turn off the heat and garnish with green onions. Serve straight out of the pan.
