  • 1/2 cup chicken broth, low-sodium
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce, low sodium
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar, distilled
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoon honey


  • 1/2 medium onion
  • 1 bunch broccoli
  • 2 medium carrot
  • 1/2 medium bell pepper, red
  • 2 clove garlic
  • 1 pound beef steak, any cut
  • 2 cup brown rice, raw
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  • Whisk together the 5 sauce ingredients and set aside. Chop all veggies and slice meat, if not already done. Set rice to cook ahead of time.
  • In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat and add chopped onion. Saute until slightly translucent. Add garlic and veggies and cover, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes, or until vegetables begin to soften.
  • Meanwhile, cook beef in a separate skillet until brown, then add to veggies.
  • Pour sauce over everything and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 5-10 minutes, until veggies are done to liking and sauce has thickened a bit. Sauce will continue to thicken off the heat.
  • Serve over brown rice and garnish with green onions or sesame seed, if desired.
