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!
- Leftover pot roast, sliced into cubes or strips
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 red pepper, chopped
- 1 cup celery, chopped
- 1 tbsp canola oil (or preferred oil) optional
- 1 tbsp garlic
- ground ginger, to taste
- red pepper flakes, to taste
- fresh broccoli crowns, chopped (I used three large crowns and had TONS in the dish)
- 2 tbsps hoisin sauce
- soy sauce, to taste
- sesame seeds (for plating)
- corn starch, for thickening (optional)
- 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!
