Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Beef — For tender beef slices, make sure to slice the meat against the grain. This will result in more tender and flavorful pieces.
  • Broccoli — To retain the vibrant green color and crispness of the broccoli, blanch it in boiling water for 1-2 minutes before sautéing.

Tips & Tricks

  • For an extra burst of flavor, sprinkle some crumbled feta cheese over the dish before serving.
  • If you prefer a spicier kick, add a pinch of red pepper flakes while sautéing the garlic.
  • Serve the Greek-style Beef & Broccoli over a bed of fluffy couscous or with a side of warm pita bread.
  • Feel free to add other Mediterranean vegetables such as cherry tomatoes or bell peppers for added color and flavor.
  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
