Ingredients

  • 4 oz. lean beef
  • 4 oz. broccoli
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • Pinch of pepper

Instructions

  • Mix soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and pepper to create the marinade.
  • Slice the steak into half-inch thick strips and place them in a bowl or Ziploc bag. Pour the marinade over the steak and place in the fridge for at least one hour.
  • Clean the broccoli and divide it into small broccoli “florets”. The florets should be bite-sized.
  • Place the pan over medium-high heat. You can test when it’s hot enough by adding a few drops of the marinade to the pan. If the drops immediately start boiling, the pan is hot enough.
  • Fry the steak along with the broccoli in the marinade for 2-4 minutes, depending on how well done you like the steak. Test a piece of steak with a knife after 2 minutes to see if it's done.
  • Remove from heat and serve right away.

Notes

This recipe is for one serving of steak and broccoli.
Enjoy this meal as is, or serve over something like rice or quinoa that can soak up the marinade. 
For even more flavorful rice, cook it in a little bit of chicken stock (just add a quarter of a bouillon cube) and ground turmeric. 
You can substitute the broccoli with any vegetable that only needs 2-4 minutes in a pan to cook and doesn't have too strong of a flavor.
If you want something other than steak, you can use my Marinated Turkey Breast in its place.
This meal can be stored in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days or in the freezer for 4-5 months.
If making multiple servings, consider cooking in batches to ensure the steak cooks evenly.
