beef & broccoli (& relaxation)
So after what seemed like a very long week and a particularly high stress Friday, my wonderful husband offered to take on the duties of dinner. He decided to conquer beef and broccoli as I eagerly relaxed on the couch with a cold glass of white wine and the tv blaring. It was wonderful and such a lovely change.
His recipe is not very authentic, but extremely tasty nonetheless. The meat used was the paper thin beef that is normally used for fondue but worked very well in this dish. The sauce consisted of oyster sauce, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, and a bit of chili sauce. All this was sauteed with the broccoli florets until they were soft but still had a bit of a bite. The beef was then added and quickly mixed in with all the other ingredients.
This meal was really delightful. Not only did it taste great but it was an admirable gesture after such a long day. I might even be willing to take on a million long days if I could always come home to such an enjoyable dinner.
AND he washed the dishes too.
