Healthy Orange Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry {Ready in under 30 minutes}

You’re looking at a meal that I made twice this past week.  Once for taste testing purposes, and the second time was to make sure I had a tasty bag lunch to bring to the office.

Healthy beef and broccoli recipe is on the table in 20 minutes!

Even though I say this dish can be ready in 30 minutes, I factored in the time I took to chase my furry felines out of the kitchen.

We pretty much inhaled this dish, which I make no apologies for.  We were hungry and this is good!

Actually, if we were sitting at a dinner table together I wouldn’t want you to witness the way I grabbed a broccoli floret and mopped up the sauce with it.  I couldn’t help myself.  

Sometimes I don’t think we should bother plating our food.  Why don’t we just grab forks and dive in?

I ate this healthy beef and broccoli just as you see it, but Alan ate his with sticky rice.

Next time I’ll serve this with my easy cauliflower fried rice!

This recipe is modified from Cooking Light. Alan and I spent his birthday weekend in Southern California and the Airbnb we rented was stocked with cookbooks.  I wanted to take the book, but that wouldn’t be nice.  Instead I took a photo of the recipe 🙂
