Awhile back Safeway was having a buy 1 get 1 deal on select meats and that is the time to stock up to save. I mostly bought chicken, but I also bought a large piece of London broil. It was a large enough piece for two meals for two people and so for Valentine's Day we ate something we don't normal have: red meat.
We grilled the steak, seasoned with a rub, on direct high for 6-8 minutes. It looks pretty pink in the picture, and thus that is the piece my husband ate. Mine was still pink but not as much. We had a side of sauteed onions and mushrooms, and served it up. A gourmet meal at home.
Then last night I used the other half of the steak to make broccoli beef. I steamed my broccoli and minced up about 4 cloves of garlic. I combined the garlic with gluten free low sodium soy sauce and some brown sugar and simmered it on medium heat to thicken up the sauce. Then I turned it down to low and added in my thin slices of meat, slow cooking them in the sauce. At the very end I tossed it the broccoli. You could make some rice, and don't you know I have a lot of rice in the house, but I just didn't seem the need this go around.
