Healthy Beef Stir Fry

This Healthy Beef Stir Fry makes for a quick meal, perfect for the end to a busy work day. This recipe is better than take out with far fewer unpronounceable additives, preservative, and who knows what else. Just  5 ingredients work together to create a dish that is light in fat but heavy in flavor.

To keep it healthy use lean cuts of beef-top or bottom round, sirloin, tenderloin, etc.  Using a nonstick pan will mean you use less oil, cutting back on even more fat. Serve over brown rice for an even healthier dinner with added fiber.

Ingredients

1 lb. beef strips, lean cut

1 head of broccoli or add as many veggies and you like!

2 Tbsp. low sodium soy sauce

2 Tbsp. cornstarch

1 cup low sodium beef broth

canola or vegetable oil to coat pan

Directions:

Whisk beef broth, soy sauce, and cornstarch together in a small bowl.
