Food To Be Fit: Buddha-ful Beef & Broccoli

Simple, delicious, and different! I don't usually cook asian-style dishes in my kitchen, but they taste just so damn good! This is a light version of beef & broccoli, and it is just as delicious as the original recipe. Taking under 45 minutes to make, and using lots of fresh vegetables, this will become a family staple, and a healthy comfort food. Happy eating!
