Teriyaki Beef Stir-Fry

If you want a healthy meal your kids will actually *want* to eat, here's an easy Asian stir-fry.

Teriyaki Beef Stir-Fry Serves 4
1 lb boneless beef round
1 lb broccoli florets
1 large red bell pepper, cut into strips
1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
4 scallions, cut into 1" pieces
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tbsp cornstarch 
2 tsp chopped fresh ginger

Cut the beef round in 1/2" strips and put into a bowl with half of the teriyaki sauce. Cover and marinate for at least 20 minutes. Meanwhile, mix the rest of the sauce with the cornstarch and set aside.
Then, boil the broccoli for 20 seconds and run it under cold water. Drain.

In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over high heat and add the beef. Stir fry until the beef is cooked through, about 2 minutes. Put the beef onto a plate and wipe out the skillet. 

Now, add the rest of the oil, ginger, broccoli, scallions and peppers and cook for about 1 minute. Add the cornstarch and stir until it starts to thicken, about 2 minutes. Add the beef and stir for 1 more minute. Serve with rice. 

Variations- Add onions, zucchini, squash or any other vegetables you'd like. Also, the beef can be marinated for up to 4 hours.
