Stirfry Beef and Broccoli

Deneece Gursky


This is another recipe from way back when my Philip was alive. One of his favorites. A blend of ingredients that satisfy the taste buds and send you back for more. He never had just one plate. Its an easy recipe that doesnt warrant standing by the stove all day. Great for a quick meal when unannounced company shows or just for something truly yummy for the family.
