Oftentimes during the week, our family is super busy.  Give us a fast and tasty recipe and my family will be grateful. Our new family favorite is this Easy Orange Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry.  When it comes to dinner, I suspect I am not the only one racing against the clock to get food on the table.

That is why I love anything I can whip up in a short amount of time. (Who is with me?) My family can also be a great help in the kitchen. We love watching cooking shows and we often want to have our own cooking competitions, but instead, I opt for “FUN cooking with the family in the kitchen show”.

I get my best Julia Child voice going, while I teach them how to prepare dinner, My daughter (who is seven) helped measure out the wet ingredients, while I sliced the steak and sliced the scallions.

It is ALWAYS about teaching them the skills they need in the kitchen while making it FUN.

Prepare the beef for cooking.

This means slicing it across the grain, very thinly. Once ready, place your meat in a plastic storage bag and add a mixture of soy sauce, brown sugar, and ginger. Put aside for later.

At this point, you can start chopping your fresh broccoli or pull out a bag of frozen broccoli.  My daughter, who isn’t quite old enough to be trusted with a big knife, still loves to help.

While my husband cuts the broccoli, she places it in a bowl.
