Homemade ginger garlic marinade makes this beef and broccoli stirfry recipe sing. It is a perfect quick easy meal.
**Part of a Whole Foods Frugal Meal Plan.**
I love ginger and garlic. I add freshly grated ginger to my chai and there is nothing better than a warm lemon ginger scone straight from the oven. And garlic? Garlic is the best thing ever discovered in the history of cooking. Together, these two fresh flavors make a spectacular marinade for Ginger Garlic Beef and Broccoli Stirfry.
I know, I know. You can dump a bottle of marinade into a bowl of stirfry meat in no time. However, in the time it would take you to figure out what half the ingredients on the back of the label even are, you can have this marinade minced, grated, and whisked right into shape.
I haven’t even mentioned how awesome it is to take that first bite and taste the flavors you melded together… from scratch… from fresh foods… give or take a bit of soy sauce (gluten free soy sauce) and Worcestershire sauce. Store bought bottles just can’t take the place of that taste and feeling.
I serve my ginger garlic beef and broccoli stir fry over salad, in a rice stir fry, or over 5 spice carrot “rice”.
