Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Beef — For tender beef, slice it against the grain. Marinating the beef in olive oil, lemon juice, and herbs for 30 minutes before cooking will enhance its flavor.
  • Broccoli — Blanch the broccoli florets in boiling water for 2 minutes before adding them to the skillet. This will help retain their vibrant green color and crisp texture.

Tips & Tricks

  • For an extra burst of flavor, sprinkle some crumbled feta cheese over the dish before serving.
  • Serve the Beef & Broccoli over a bed of couscous or quinoa for a complete Mediterranean meal.
  • Feel free to add other Mediterranean vegetables such as zucchini or eggplant for additional variety and nutrition.
  • If you prefer a spicier kick, add a pinch of red pepper flakes or a drizzle of harissa sauce.
  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
