Simple Pleasure Sunday: Beef and Broccoli Repeat


Last Monday, I prepared one of my new recipes again, beef and broccoli, for dinner. I followed the same recipe I came up back in November, having combined my two favorites found online. Although, I did tweak it, using a single tablespoon of dark brown sugar this time. I only managed to marinate the flank steak for exactly an hour. Having received a larger 12-inch pan with matching lid for Christmas, I (luxuriously) didn't have to brown the (pound of) meat in two batches. I am pleased in how it turned out. It was delicious, as were the leftovers. I served the beef and broccoli over white rice and indulged in Coca-Cola to drink. I can see this dish becoming one in regular rotation.


Soon, I will not be quite so poor and more able to purchase new ingredients and tools. I anticipate cooking a new recipe on a weekly basis. Maybe something warm and comforting since it's still winter, like risotto, minestrone, or garlic mashed potatoes...
