Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Beef — For tender beef, slice it against the grain. You can also marinate the beef in a mixture of lime juice and olive oil for 30 minutes before cooking to enhance its flavor.
  • Broccoli — To retain its vibrant green color and crispness, blanch the broccoli florets in boiling water for 1-2 minutes before adding them to the skillet.

Tips & Tricks

  • For an extra kick of heat, add a pinch of cayenne pepper or a chopped chili pepper to the dish.
  • Serve the Latin-style Beef & Broccoli over a bed of fluffy white rice or with warm tortillas for a complete Latin American meal.
  • If you prefer a saucier dish, double the amount of sauce ingredients and simmer for a few extra minutes.
