When you order from a Chinese restaurant, it’s almost inevitable that you’ll order Beef and Broccoli. How can you not? It’s too delicious to pass on! The beef is saturated in a tangy, savory, and sweet sauce, and the broccoli adds a touch of freshness, color, and crunch. Beef and Broccoli isn’t hard to make in your own kitchen—in fact, it can take less time than ordering delivery! You can have delivery-quality food made fresh without even breaking a sweat!
