My husband absolutely loves this meal. Whenever he see's it on my Meal Plan on the fridge, he exclaims all week how he can't wait for Beef and Broccoli. I love this meal, not only because it tastes great, but because of how easy it is. The night before you will want to marinade your beef. At the same time, I make up the stir-fry sauce and store it in a jar so it's ready to go. If you want to go one step further you can cut your broccoli into florets and slice your green onions as well. Then when you get home and want to make supper it takes only 10 minutes to throw to together. Gotta love that.

Absolutely wonderful. I love the ease of preparation of this meal as well as it's fabulous flavor. It's a great crowd pleaser...and by "crowd" I mean my 15 month old and my husband :)
