This recipe for Beef and Broccoli and a flavour packed easy dinner that the whole family will enjoy.  The marinating process makes the meat super tender and the texture is like the takeaway variety you get, in fact the whole recipe is basically a copy cat of the takeaway variety except you have made it at home for half the price and know all the ingredients you have added.

    Could I leave it to marinade all day (Ie, place in the marinade before leaving for work) or would it be too long?

    First try it was delicious, but got a little sweet. Next go I reduced the sugar to 1tbs and it was perfect! Is my ‘go to’ stir fry now. I also added extra veggies of carrot, red caps and bok choy

    This is such a good recipe, it tastes exactly like take away (which is what I was going for!)

    Any Chinese-takeaway-inspired chicken recipes, Amanda?
