Quick & Simple Mongolian Beef & Broccoli – only 420 calories!

4oz Raw flank steak sliced against the grain about 1/4″ thick

5oz Broccoli

2tbsp Better Body Foods Coconut Palm Sugar (http://www.betterbodyfoods.com/)

2tbsp Soy Sauce

2tbsp Water

1/2tsp minced garlic

1/4tsp minced ginger

1tbsp Cornstarch

1 Green Onion

1.5tsp Olive oil – divided

 

Lay the cornstarch on a flat working surface and coat each piece of meat with it using your hands to rub it in – set aside. Mix together in a small bowl the soy sauce, sugar and water. In a small frying pan heat up 1/2tsp of olive oil over medium heat and add the ginger/garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute. Pour in the sauce mixture and allow to boil for about 2-3 minutes or just until it slightly thickens. Pour back into bowl and set aside. Add 1tsp of olive oil back into the pan and once hot, add the meat (cooking in 2 batches if pan is too small) and cook each side for about one minute. Once all of the meat has mostly cooked, return the sauce back into the pan and allow to cook for about another 3 minutes until bubbly and thick. Remove from heat and stir in green onion. Serve with steamed broccoli and/or rice.
