I love Chinese food but my husband does not. I have however found, that he is more likely to try a dish I make. I have a good collection of several Asian style dishes. Almost is something my husband enjoys. If he didn’t like it, I could usually tweak it to get it to where he likes it. Just like with this beef and broccoli.

Today’s recipe is one that we did enjoy at a get together with friends that my husband wasn’t happy to go to. He wasn’t happy because he knew they were going to serve Chinese food.  When the food was before him that evening, he wanted to be nice and try it. He tried it and LOVES it. I knew that if my husband LOVES this dish. I must get the recipe.

However, all of these ingredients can be found in a regular grocery store in the oriental section. You can save money on the ingredients for this beef and broccoli if you do go to an Asian market but it isn’t necessary.
