Beef Broccoli Stir-Fry

 Beef Broccoli Stir-Fry
My family often requests this tasty stir-fry. It's great because it combines tender beef and nutritious vegetables in one dish. We enjoy it year-round but especially in summer, when I grow my own broccoli and onions. Plus, it doesn't heat up the kitchen. —Ruth Stahl Shepherd, Montana
