Simple Beef with Broccoli Stir Fry

With only two main ingredients of soy sauce and Stevia, not including the meat and veggies, it is as simple as it is going to get. I was rather surprised at how good this dish turned out considering the lack of ingredients. I was almost nervous to try it LOL. I stuck my finger in the sauce and had to taste it first. Boy was it hot! As a precaution, don't stick your finger in the sauce after it was boiling for 5 minutes. :) I loved the sweet and salty taste of the sauce. Yum! What a combination! The flavors blend really well. I was thinking... what no garlic... no red pepper... no extra spices? But it worked. If I could add anything extra it would be garlic, but alas I had reached my limit for the day. I have to tell you the original recipe called for 1/4 cup of oil! Gasp! I know! Talk about a heart attack waiting to happen! We definitely know that isn't on plan. To be honest, I really didn't miss it. I actually left out the 1 tsp of sesame oil I was originally going to add and it did not break the dish. I used a really good non-stick skillet (thank you Emeril!) and the beef created enough liquid so that it didn't stick to the pan. If you would like to add the oil, be my guest. It will only count as 1/2 a healthy fat extra that day. We all know that we have sneaked in a few extra condiments or a little of this or that in once or twice before right? LOL. I know I am guilty of doing that, but not this time! I kept it OP. Yay! Keep in mind that you do not have to have cauliflower "rice" with this. I just added it because I usually like to eat "rice" with my stir frys and this was no exception. What can I expect, growing up eating rice almost every day. My mom always jokes around and says she could never do Medifast because she could never give up her rice. You can always add more broccoli instead or other veggies. I also added some adaptions towards the end of the recipe in case you wanted chicken or shrimp instead. So in the end, all was not lost. I found my simple "go to" Beef and Broccoli stir fry. Enjoy this scrumptious dish and don't forget to serve it with that yummy sauce!
