A homemade orange teriyaki sauce transforms this easy beef and broccoli stir-fry into an unbelievably flavorful one-pot dinner that the whole family will love!
Ahhhh, yes!! The return of the stir-fries!! Not that there’s been any shortage of them the past few months, but more is always gonna be a preferred thing.
Also, I want to accidentally get hopelessly trapped in a pan of this orange teriyaki beef and broccoli stir-fry. Just throwing that desire out there.
As you may have read in this post, beef and broccoli has kinda become my go-to stir fry ever since I met Jason. He introduced me to his family’s recipe and naturally I had to be all annoying and tweak things to make it “Sarah-specialized.”
I’ve been told by multiple people before that I’m a destroyer of tradition. ??
I’m also okay with that so this is round two of my beef and broccoli obsession and trust me: it’s a good kinda obsession to get into.
It’s the EASIEST DINNER EVER, you guys!! Beef, onions, broccoli, and garlic get pan-fried. My homemade (killer x10000) orange teriyaki sauce gets made right in the pan, mandarin oranges join the party and then the whole thing gets dumped on a pile of fluffy rice. <<< we nailed this obviously.
Jason and I totally demolished all of this beef and broccoli stir-fry in the space of only one day, guys. ONE DAY!! Granted, J ate about 3/4 of it since he’s your typical bottomless-pit-for-beef dude, but still if that’s ANY indication…
The indication being that you need this in your dinner life like last week. ???
