Beef & Broccoli – From Leftover Pot Roast!

My meal plan today says I was supposed to make Italian, but when I realized that we had WAY more leftover pot roast than I was comfortable throwing away I knew that I had to change the plan.  After looking for some inspiration on some different web forums, I thought about the nice fresh broccoli we purchased at the market on Sunday and knew I had to go for stirfry!

This dish was SO easy and I am glad I made it.  I feel good about using up my leftovers and it definitely recreated the beef. I also liked that throwing in raw broccoli (sometimes I use frozen) kept the veggie nice and crunchy. Highly recommend!

  • Cut leftover pot roast into strips or cubes.  My pot roast was already sliced, so I was able to do this easily. Cut out fatty parts if there are any.
  • Chop up your veggies!

  • Heat up your oil in a pan (I adore my Wok!) – I guess you don’t need as much oil if your pan is nonstick.  I always at least do a little bit to coat.
  • Add in your garlic and throw the peppers, onions, and celery in after the garlic has cooked a little bit.
  • Saute away!  I added the broccoli shortly after.
  • Add soy sauce (to taste), ginger (I probably used at LEAST 2 tablespoons… I love ginger!), and red pepper flakes.  The soy sauce will help tender the broccoli
  • After the broccoli cooks down a little, add in your hoisin sauce, followed by your cut beef.
  • Allow to cook on medium heat until broccoli is done and beef is hot and coated with sauce.
  • If you desire thicker sauce, you can combine 1-2 tablespoons of corn starch in a mug or small bowl with a little bit of water.  Stir, and add the mixture to your pan.  You’ll thicken it right in!
  • I served my beef and broccoli over brown rice and topped with sesame seeds.  Enjoy!
