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

This recipe is a keeper. I just added some red pepper flakes while stirfrying the beef. No left overs!

We made this tonight for dinner. It was great! We added water chestnuts, mushrooms and a couple dashes of hot sauce. Bolded the flavor just a bit! A keeper!

A wonderful recipe! I did add about 1-2 teaspoons of red pepper flakes to the broccoli, and I used green onion instead of regular onion. Those two minor differences don't change the fact that this is a phenomenal recipe. Officially my go-to for beef & broccoli stir fry.

This was pretty good, but sauce could have used a little heat, so next time I'll add some red peppers and a little less soy sauce. The only thing I did different was add julienned carrots and slivered almonds.
