Manic Monday Recipe Share!!

Wow it's already the beginning of a brand new week! Time to figure out what to have for dinner in between work, and the many commitments we have in our daily lives.  I know this is not always an easy task.  Especially when your trying to eat healthy.

If your a regular reader of my blog you'll know that lately I have been into sharing quick, easy, healthy recipes.  This has become a fun habit for me, as I've been finding all these really great meals that I may have not tried had I not been trying to become more healthy.

The best part is that the kids all seem to like everything I've made so far.  When I used to think healthy, I also thought bland, plain, blah.  But my entire outlook has now changed.  This fun challenge has also gotten us out of the "what to have for dinner" rut.  

So I now share with you my favorite healthy recipe from last weeks dinner menu :)


1 lb. round steak sliced into thin strips
1 clove garlic minced
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 can low sodium beef broth
2 tbsp cornstarch
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp (or to taste) low sodium soy sauce
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp ginger
4 cups broccoli florets
4 cups cooked brown rice

1}  Coat skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat for one minute
2}  Add beef, onion, minced garlic and stir fry until brown
3} Remove beef, drain and set aside
4} Add half the broth and broccoli to pan (I also added some fresh asparagus) Cover and cook until veggies are tender-crisp
5} Mix cornstarch, brown sugar, garlic powder, ginger and soy sauce with remaining broth until smooth
6} Add mixture to pan and cook until it begins to thicken, stirring constantly
7} Return beef to pan, stir til thoroughly heated
8} Serve over rice 

Tomorrow I will be back to share photos from my son's eventful weekend including a prom, and a graduation.  Such a busy time of year!!

I would also like to thank Create-with-Joy.com for including my recipe post for 
15 Minute Chili in their "Inspire Me Monday" meme!! Thanks so much :))  

Hope you all have a great week!!

  1. How can you go wrong with beef and broccoli? 2 of my favorite ingredients in a recipe, for sure!

  2. I love broccoli and this recipe sounds delicious. thank you..

  3. Hmmmmm i am going to have to look into making that with chicken... that's all we eat cause of Brian's gout!

  4. Thanks for the comments ladies!! Julie that's actually a good idea ~ to substitute chicken for beef. Would also make it more healthy.

  5. I would love for you to come by and share this post on the Creative Corner Hop. The linky party starts on Monday and stays open all week.
