Marinated Beef Strips with Broccoli

Oh yes, this is yummy!  Quick weeknight meal using thin strips of steak and fresh broccoli. The marinade is simple, and the recipe equally easy to do.  I hope you enjoy it.

2 tsp minced garlic (or garlic powder)
1 tsp minced ginger (I used ground ginger)
1 cup beef stock (I use homemade)
1 lb. any steak, sliced into thin strips (I have used flank or skirt steak, but any cut will work)
1/3 cup red wine
1 tsp course-ground black pepper (or more to taste)
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 medium onion, diced
1 cup fresh broccoli florets 
1 cup rice, uncooked

In the morning, marinate beef strips in wine, pepper, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, course-ground black pepper and beef stock; cover and set aside in the refrigerator until evening (you can also do this a day ahead if preferred).

When ready to prepare, steam, or cook rice until done; cover and keep warm.

In large skillet over medium heat (sprayed with cooking spray) saute' onion. Reserving marinade, remove beef and stir fry in skillet with onion approximately 3-4 minutes.

Add marinade and bring to a boil, stirring and allowing to reduce some. Add broccoli florets and cook just until al dente.

Serve immediately over hot cooked rice.
