Ingredients for servings

  • 1 cup uncooked brown rice

  • 0.5 cups water

  • 0.5 inch ginger grated

  • 1 pound flank or sirloin steak 0.25-inch thick slices

  • 2.5 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

  • 2 tablespoon cornstarch

  • 3 cloves garlic minced

  • 0.5 pound brown or shitake mushrooms sliced

  • 0.75 pound broccoli chopped

  • 2 teaspoons rice vinegar

  • 1.5 tablespoons tomato paste

  • 0.5 cup chicken stock

  • 0.5 cup water

  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil

  • 0.5 lemon juiced


  • Prepare beef marinade by adding ginger, 1 tablespoon soy sauce and 2 teaspoons cornstarch to a bowl. Add the beef slices and mix with fingers or a spatula until well combined. Set aside for at least 10 minutes.

  • Cook the brown rice by combining the rice with 2 cups of water and bringing to a boil, covered, over high heat. Once the water boils, give the rice a stir. Cover and lower the heat to low, allowing rice to simmer for about 45 minutes.

  • Heat a wok or large pan over medium-high heat. Add broccoli with 0.5 cup water and stir-fry until water is absorbed (the water helps the broccoli cook faster and without burning).

  • Sprinkle with salt, and add mushrooms. Stir-fry until mushrooms are mostly cooked through. Remove from pan and set aside.

  • Return pan to high heat. Add cooking oil and then beef to heated oil. Spread beef out into one layer if possible. Cook for 1 minute and then return broccoli and mushrooms to the pan; add garlic and stir.

  • In a separate bowl, make the stir-fry sauce by adding 2.5 tablespoons soy sauce, rice vinegar, chicken stock and 1 tablespoon cornstarch.

  • Push all ingredients to the side, forming a donut in the middle of the pan. Give sauce a final stir and pour it into the hole. Let it sit until you see it darken in color and start to bubble a lot. When that happens, toss everything through. Finish with a squeeze of lemon juice and then season to taste with salt and pepper. Feel free to add a kick of hot sauce too. Enjoy over 0.5 cup of rice.
