I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Asian Ground Beef and Broccoli

This recipe is not only delicious, but it's also an easy stovetop dinner that'll be ready in less than 30 minutes!

3/4 lb lean ground beef
3 tsps minced garlic
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup light soya sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp fresh grated ginger
1/4 tsp black pepper
a pinch to a 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 red pepper, sliced
1/2 red onion, sliced
2 cups broccoli florets
1/2 cup sweet chili sauce
2 tbsps water
salt and pepper to taste
sesame seeds to garnish
cooked rice

Brown ground beef in a skillet until no pink remains, then add the garlic and cook 1 minute. Whisk the brown sugar, soya sauce, sesame oil, ginger, pepper and pepper flakes together and add to the meat. Cook 2 minutes then cover and keep warm.

In a wok or large frying pan heat the vegetable oil and add the onion. Cook about 3 minutes then add the red pepper and broccoli along with the sweet chili sauce, water, salt and pepper. Cover and cook 5-6 minutes or until broccoli is tender crisp.

Serve the beef and broccoli with rice and sesame seeds to garnish. You can cook up some white rice or save even more time by using pre-cooked canned rice like Dainty Rice. I like the garlic flavoured one with this dish.

Serves 3-4
