The Best Easy Beef and Broccoli Stir-fry

I love Chinese food. It has become my all time favorite. So I've been wanting to try out recipes more at home to find ones that are as good as the Chinese restaurants. Because eating at home is always cheaper and you know what goes into the food your eating :) This was delicious! It was even better than the Beef and Broccoli dish I've had at some take out places! This will definitely be made again for my family!

wondering if you have thought to have the person posting the five recipes...include a shopping list of the ingredients. That way we can pick a week then print the list and have most of the work done for the meal planning that week.
just a thought...
