When there are no good sales at the grocery store, you have to get creative with your leftovers. After making my Christmas Beef Wellington this weekend, I used the leftovers to make my featured recipes today. Use low sodium soy sauce, low sodium beef stock and brown rice to make it even better for you!
Sesame Beef and Broccoli
1 Tbs vegetable oil
1 piece (3/4 pound) filet of beef, cut in 3/4-inch strips (about 2 cups)
1/2 tsp salt
4 scallions, finely chopped (about 1/4 cup)
2 small garlic cloves, minced
1 lb broccoli, florets cut into small pieces, stalks peeled and cut into 1/4-inch dice
1 cup low-sodium beef broth
3 Tbs soy sauce
1 Tbs plus 2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 tsp dark sesame oil
2 cups Cooked rice, for serving
1. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over high heat until hot but not smoking. Add beef, and sprinkle with the salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer beef to a plate.
2. Add scallions and garlic to skillet. Cook, stirring constantly, until golden, about 30 seconds. Add broccoli and 1/2 cup water. Cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture is dry, about 3 minutes. Stir together broth, soy sauce, and cornstarch in a small bowl, and add to skillet. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture is no longer cloudy, 1 to 2 minutes. Return beef and any juices to pan; cook, stirring often, until beef is heated through, about 1 minute. Remove from heat, and stir in sesame oil. Serve with rice.

5 stars - I added red pepper flakes and ginger to the scallions and garlic for an additional layer of flavor and extra nutrition. - Susan Ewing 12/19/2011
