Peanut Powered Recipes

Beef and Broccoli with Spicy Peanut Sauce

SERVES 4
3  tablespoons lower sodium soy sauce,
 divided
2  tablespoons creamy peanut butter
2  tablespoons plain rice vinegar
1  tablespoon sugar
1  tablespoon sriracha sauce
1  pound top sirloin steak, cut into thin
 strips
1  tablespoon cornstarch
2  tablespoons peanut oil, divided
1  tablespoons minced ginger
4  garlic cloves, minced
8  ounces sliced mushrooms
4  cups broccoli florets
1/2  cup sliced green onions
2  cups hot cooked white rice

 

  1. Combine 2 tablespoon of the soy sauce, peanut butter, vinegar, sugar and sriracha in a bowl; stirring until smooth. Combine the remaining 1 tablespoon soy sauce, steak and cornstarch in a separate bowl; tossing well to coat the meat.
  2. Heat 2 teaspoons of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high. Add half the beef and cook, stirring, until no longer pink, about 1 minute; transfer to a plate. Heat 1 teaspoon of the remaining oil and repeat with remaining beef.
  3. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in the skillet over medium-high. Add the ginger and garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 15 seconds. Add the mushrooms and cook until lightly browned, about 5-6 minutes; transfer mushrooms to the plate with the beef. Return the skillet to the heat and add the broccoli and 3/4 cup water; cook, stirring occasionally, until the water has evaporated and the broccoli is bright green, about 2 minutes. Add the reserved beef and mushrooms along with any juice on the plate and the peanut butter mixture; bring to a boil and cook until heated through and the sauce has thickened slightly about 1-2 minutes. Serve over the rice.
